The Secrets We Keep
The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver
Publisher: Farrar, Straus, and Giroux (BYR)
Expected Publication Date: April 28, 2015

A girl takes over her twin sister's identity in this emotionally charged page-turner about the complicated bond between sisters.

Ella and Maddy Lawton are identical twins. Ella has spent her high school years living in popular Maddy's shadows, but she has never been envious of Maddy. In fact, she's chosen the quiet, safe confines of her sketchbook over the constant battle for attention that has defined Maddy's world.

When—after a heated argument—Maddy and Ella get into a tragic accident that leaves her sister dead, Ella wakes up in the hospital surrounded by loved ones who believe she is Maddy. Feeling responsible for Maddy's death and everyone's grief, Ella makes a split-second decision to pretend to be Maddy. Soon, Ella realizes that Maddy's life was full of secrets. Caught in a web of lies, Ella is faced with two options—confess her deception or live her sister's life.


The tight rein I had on my emotions fell away the instant the door closed behind me.

I could feel myself shaking, the fine tremor of fear working its way through my body. I didn't turn around to meet his eyes. Not because I was scared or guilty, but because I knew he'd see straight through me.
