DOUBLE IDENTITY by Margaret Peterson Haddix is a science fiction thriller that doubles the mystery and doubles the fun!
Why are Bethany's parents so overprotective? Why don't they let her go to sleep-overs? Why does her mom cry all the time? Why do they have to go everywhere with her and even dress her like a knight when she rides her bicycle? And then, why would they whisk her away from school, drive hundreds of miles in the middle of the night, only to drop her on the doorstep of an aunt she didn't even know she had? More and more questions! The answers, like puzzle piece clues slowly being turned over, will give Bethany the surprise of her life.
You will be just as surprised as Bethany! This is a book that will make you want to slip out of your desk and sneak a read during science! And, when you have solved the mystery, you'll have just begun because you'll want to research to learn more!
"In this exhilarating thriller, Margaret Peterson Haddix crafts a taut story so full of twists and turns, readers will be gripped until the startling conclusion." (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers)
