What would you do if your whole life was a lie and learning the truth could cost you your life?
From New York Times bestselling author of the Shadow Falls series comes C. C. Hunter’s new YA thriller about a girl who learns that she may have been kidnapped as a child, and must race to uncover the truth about her past before she winds up a victim.
Chloe was three years old when she became Chloe Holden, but her adoption didn’t scar her, and she’s had a great life. Now, fourteen years later, her loving parents’ marriage has fallen apart and her mom has moved them to Joyful, Texas. Starting twelfth grade as the new kid at school, everything Chloe loved about her life is gone. And feelings of déjà vu from her early childhood start haunting her.
When Chloe meets Cash Colton she feels drawn to him, as though they’re kindred spirits. Until Cash tells her the real reason he sought her out: Chloe looks exactly like the daughter his foster parents lost years ago, and he’s determined to figure out the truth.
As Chloe and Cash delve deeper into her adoption, the more things don’t add up, and the more strange things start happening. Why is Chloe’s adoption a secret that people would kill for?

I received a copy of this book from St. Martins Press and NetGalley for the blog tour.
It is my first book by C.C. Hunter…Synopsis intrigued me and fortunately, I got the chance to read it. I am recently in the phase where I am loving Mystery YA books and series(Yes I am watching PLL RN).
Chloe Holden’s life is in chaos her parents got divorced, the mother is suffering from cancer and moved along Chloe to another city…Chloe left everything her friends, her bf, her father, her past, her good days behind. Until she met Cash, a weird foster kid in the new school. Did I mention Chloe is adopted? After a short good time, things are again going in more chaos than before. There are certain secrets which can lead to dangerous paths.
I like the story it is different than what I read before, I won’t say it was completely mysterious, It was at certain points which I enjoyed…The writing was average for me, Chloe part is in First Person POV while Cash was and the other was in 3rd person. There wasn’t space while changing the POV so it was confusing and took time to realize oh now I am reading Cash’s or Chloe’s.
The struggle of Mr. and Mrs. Fuller is defined beautifully as well as Cash’s. Lindsay feels like filler…I was expecting more chemistry between Chloe and Cash.
Overall I enjoyed the book.
