What if everything you believed turned out to be a lie?
Riley MacPherson is returning to her childhood home in North Carolina. A place that holds cherished memories. While clearing out the house, she finds a box of old newspaper articles - and a shocking family secret begins to unravel. Riley has spent her whole life believing that her older sister, Lisa, died tragically as a teenager. But now she's starting to uncover the truth: her life has been built on a foundation of lies, told by everyone she loved. 
Lisa is alive. Alive and living under a new identity. But why exactly was she on the run all those years ago, and what secrets are being kept now?

Captivating story

I really enjoyed this book. Kept me listening as I wanted to know more about the characters and what happened. I don't want to say too much in case I give anything away but I feel it was very well written and narrator was good too.
