Seraphine Mayes and her twin brother, Danny, were born in the middle of summer at their family's estate on the Norfolk coast. Within hours of their birth, their mother threw herself from the cliffs and the au pair fled. Now an adult, Seraphine mourns the recent death of her father. While going through his belongings, she uncovers a family photograph that raises dangerous questions. It was taken on the day the twins were born, and in the photo, their mother, surrounded by her husband and her young son, is smiling serenely and holding just one baby.

I was deciding between a few books and chose this one on a whim. Wasnt sure if I was going to like it but wow. I was not disappointed. The narrator was excellent wonderful job portraying the different characters throughout the book. And the story was very well done. I couldn't put it down!

One night in an isolated college town in the hills of Southern California, a first-year student stumbles into her dorm room, falls asleep - and doesn’t wake up. She sleeps through the morning, into the evening. Her roommate, Mei, cannot rouse her. Neither can the paramedics, nor the perplexed doctors at the hospital. When a second girl falls asleep, and then a third, Mei finds herself thrust together with an eccentric classmate as panic takes hold of the college and spreads to the town.

I liked this story however the Narrator wasnt my favourite, and kind of ruined the books experience for me.
I found myself getting confused as to if "the charactor" was speaking or if it was just their part of the story and I think the narrator was getting confused also...

With no witnesses, their deaths were ruled a tragic accident. Heartbroken, Zoe and her family move away from her home. They’re just beginning to get back to some kind of normality when, out of the blue, Zoe receives an anonymous email: "You need to find out the truth about what happened to your son. Don’t let this rest. Don’t believe the lie." Shaken, Zoe starts an obsessive hunt for the truth.
