Hayley is going to have the best year ever. After years of careful planning, she's ready to serve as student council president AND editor-in-chief of the newspaper. Ivy League, here she comes!
However, just before student council elections, someone creates a fake facebook profile for Hayley and starts posting inappropriate photos and incriminating updates. It must be the work of a highly skilled Photoshopper, but the attention to detail is scary. The embarrassing photos of "Hayley" in her bathing suit reveal a birthmark on her back--a birth mark Hayley has never shown in public. . . .
The situation escalates until Hayley's mother reveals some shocking information. Hayley isn't an only child: She has a twin sister who was adopted by a different family. And that's not all. Soon, Hayley discovers that her long-lost sister isn't just playing a prank--she's plotting to take over Hayley's life . . . by any means necessary.
Identity Theft is a story about Hayley, who has no social life and only focuses on her academic excellence. All she does is study, study, study and a bunch of additional school stuff that can get her into a good university. She is in a line to get a big scholarship that will cover all of her cost. She tries her best, and when she's about to reach her goal, she started being harassed on Facebook. But the thing is...she doesn't have a Facebook. Someone made a profile for her and started to post a pictures of her at the parties and with guys and stuff. She knows it is not her because she never saw the people on a pictures an she never been to those parties, because remember she has no life, umm sorry no social life. So what can it be, just someone with a killer Photoshop skills? or so she thinks...Maybe she's just going crazy?...If only.. She finds out that it's her twin sister that she never knew about, and that her mother claims as dead. What does Hayle thinks? Is at some kind of ghost revenge? Or is she actually alive? Than why would she do stuff like that to Haley? So this is basically the whole story line.
The whole plot of the book was really predictable and unoriginal. I mean if they didn't have such a detailed description of the book, maybe it would of have been better. But no...everything was just laid out, and there wasn't much to go on. Not a lot of awesome twists or unpredictable moments. I knew exactly everything that is going to happen. I really don't like it when the book is so predictable. Also the writing was kind of bad, it didn't have any memorable or likable quotes, or even moments. I never read anything from Anna Davies before, so I can't really say that she's a bad writer. Maybe this book just wasn't her best. So don't just an author just by reading one book by them. I might try reading her other books...Okay so as I said I didn't really liked the plot that much, It was okay. What I really hated were the characters.
Hayle, I honestly don't know how you can like her character. She was just plain to me. I felt no connection, nothing. I think I liked her evil twin a lot better. I mean Hayle, she just seemed like a stock up b*t*h, even though that's what she thought about everyone else. She always thought that everyone was out to get her, and everyone hated her because she was so smart. Kill me now. I really, really, really was annoyed with her. Like really. What about the guy she liked? I mean seriously? Of course it is going to be a cute popular jock that she just believes that he is different. But he is just an a**hole! How couldn't she see it? I hated the way they talked, if you can call it talking because Hayle barely talked to him. Also her nerdy friend that she's always in competition with... Oh god. Kill me. Again. Both of them are just so full of themselves. That's all I have to say. Probably the character that I found that I can actually stand was her evil mental sister. Yeah how crazy is that.
Overall, I honestly didn't like this book. I also wouldn't recommend it. But I know that their is people out there that might like it. I don't judge, I know we all have our different point of views on things. But again, if you ask me I would of have said it's not worth reading. I only give it a 2.5 stars for a try of making it work and for an evil sister;D
P.S: The ending? What the hell? Okay never mind I don't even want to know.
