Three Black Swans / Caroline B. Cooney

TITLE: Three Black Swans
AUTHOR: Caroline B. Cooney

Do you remember The Face on the Milk Carton series? The author, Caroline B. Cooney, has written over 75 novels for teens and they just keep getting better! Three Black Swans is a great choice if you're looking for an edge-of-your-seat-can't-stop-reading and am-dying-to-know-how-this-can-possibly-end novel!

Missy is a sixteen-year-old high school student who comes up with great prank for her science class; she and her cousin are going to convince her classmates that they are in fact long-last twins rather than cousins. The whole thing turns Missy and her cousin Claire's lives upside-down when a video of the two of them go viral and the girls begin to believe their own prank. Could the girls actually be identical twins? After sixteen years of sleep overs and family get-togethers, is it possible that their parents have kept such a secret hidden for so long?

M's Verdict: Read Three Black Swans if you like surprising twists and turns. Although it's sure to make you a bit tense (due to anticipating and waiting for what could possibly happen next), it's worth it.
