The premise was great (which was why I thought I'd try it) but the book never rose to any particular heights. The situations were not particularly exciting/interesting/funny/suspenseful, the characters were not particularly interesting/compelling/engaging/distinct (aside from clearly evil Miss Fox), and though Ivy's apparently a young girl from days of yore, her voice is nice, calm, 40ish modern lady.

I felt the situation cried out for more of a Wolves of Willoughby Chase, gothic-inflected, over-the-top treatment, and I didn't get it. Aside from the lack of modern conveniences, the school and its inhabitants seemed very present day. It's all a bit rote, a bit formulaic, and the parts that weren't were awfully unlikely, which doesn't help.

The reason it's a three star and not two star review is the glimmers of good writing hither and thither. I got a chuckle out of one character suggesting another character might get for a present "not just a pony, a whole horse!" and the character responded with "I'd hardly want half a horse." So there were moments. But mostly it was me, sighing to myself, thinking "no one would do that," "when is this supposed to take place again?" and "do young girls have to read about mean girl school shenanigans to enjoy a book? It's not doing anything for me."

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). ( )

This was a fast paced mystery set in 1937. Ivy has been summoned to Rookwood Academy to replace her twin sister who has gone missing. However, Ivy knows something is terribly wrong and so the race begins to find Scarlett.

"The Lost Twin" was quite a page-turner and entertaining, perfect for younger teens. There were rivals, villains, nasty teachers and clues along the way to keep the reader engaged. I really liked the strong friendship which developed between Ivy and her roommate, Ariadne. Despite being rather quiet and demure, she was a true friend and always there for Ivy, especially at the end.

The book finishes on a climax which will encourage readers to continue the story to discover what happens next. ( )

BRAVO! Truly, a around of applause is owed to Sophie Cleverly and The Lost Twin. I'm well out of the age range that this book is aimed at, but I absolutely adored every bit of it! I can only imagine how much excitement younger Jessica would have had, upon discovering this story. So many things I love are expertly wrapped up in here. Forbidding boarding schools, terrible headmistresses, brave girls, and tons of secrets. What more could a reader ask for?

If you've been following me for any length of time, you'll know that one of the biggest points in any book for me is character development. In MG fiction, that's even more important. A character needs to grow, to change, and to find themselves in situations that cause them to step outside the box. Cleverly has that down pat. Ivy's character was brilliant. Quiet, meek Ivy learned so much about herself while posing as her much more outgoing sister, Scarlet. I loved watching her come out of her shell, and face down the danger. All for the love of her sibling.

Oh, and the mystery! Pardon my overuse of the word brilliant, but it truly was brilliant! The highest compliment I can extend to this story, was that it made me think of my love of Nancy Drew, as a young reader. The clues. The chase. I was head over heels for all of it. The fact that Cleverly gave Ivy the perfect little sidekick, and best friend, was just the icing on the cake. I couldn't love this story more if I tried.

As you can tell, I am a big fan of this story. The ending was just pure perfection, and I am so eager for more! I'm smitten with Ivy, and so excited to meet her sister. This series and I are going to get along just fine. ( )

Ivy, I pray that it's you reading this. And if you are, well, I suppose you're the new me...

When shy Ivy's troublemaking twin Scarlet vanishes from Rookwood boarding school, Ivy is invited to "take her place." But when Ivy arrives, she discovers the school's true intention; she has to pretend to be Scarlet. She must think like Scarlet, act like Scarlet, become Scarlet. What on earth happened to the real Scarlet, and why is the school trying to keep it a secret?

Luckily for Ivy, Scarlet isn't about to disappear without a fight. She's left pieces of her journal carefully hidden all over the school for Ivy to find. Ivy's going to figure out what happened to Scarlet. She's got to.

But the staff of Rookwood is always watching, and they'll do anything to keep their secrets buried...

The Lost Twin by Sophie Cleverly is a young adult novel. Scarlet Grey, Ivy’s twin sister, was attending the Rookwood School. Ivy was told that Scarlet died, but Ivy has her doubts. Then Ivy receives a notice that she is going to attend the school. Ivy is not given a choice. Miss Guinevere Fox is the headmistress. She informs Ivy that she is to take her sister’s place (literally). She will answer to the name Scarlet and should act like her. Ivy is reluctant to do it, but she decides it will give her an opportunity to find out what really happened to Scarlet. Ivy settles into life at Rookwood and starts looking for answers. Ivy discovers that Scarlet did leave something behind. There are clues that lead her to her sister’s journal. Pages of the journal are hidden all around the school. Ivy just needs to follow the clues to find the pages hidden locations. Some of them are tricky and hard to get to, but when one is determined, nothing is impossible. Can Ivy find out what happened to Scarlet? Is there a chance that Scarlet is still alive? You will have to read The Lost Twin to find out!

The Lost Twin is a short book (shorter than most books). It does have a good pace and is easy to read. The writing is satisfactory and the mystery is interesting. I liked how Ivy followed Scarlet’s clues and the clues were intriguing. I give The Lost Twin 3.5 out of 5 stars. The one thing that I did not like was the ending. I found the ending to be abrupt (it happened to quickly) and unsatisfactory. The book is left unfinished, and we have to wait for the next novel (like the cliffhanger on a television shows season finale) to come out (extremely frustrating). I am not sure yet if I will read the next book or not. I will wait and see what it is about and then make my decision. While this book is geared towards young adults, I believe older readers will enjoy The Lost Twin as well.

I received a complimentary copy of The Lost Twin from NetGalley (thanks to the publisher) in exchange for an honest evaluation. ( )
