She Was the Quiet One by Michele Campbell

You would think that twins sisters would have a bond like no other. Especially if they had lost both parents and all they had were each other. Are Bel and Rose Enright an exception to this rule? Bel is outgoing,  a fashion trend setter, artsy, makes friends easily. Rose is quiet, polite, studious, the rule follower. They are twins but they couldn't be more different.

Bel and Rose lose their mother leaving them no other family except for their grandmother. Their grandmother greets them with less than open arms. Instead of nurturing the twins in their time of grief, she keeps with family tradition by shipping them off to an exclusive boarding school. Thrown into a new life with no friends or family to turn to, the girls cling to the Donovan's whom are the dorm heads.

This twisty tale is exactly what you would think a high end co-ed boarding school full of teenagers would be like. This is a very realistic view of present day problems- bulling, cliques, teenage attractions, obsessions and rebellions. Throw in some snap chat and face book and you have a real life drama. Except things go too far. How well do you know your spouse, your sister, your friend? Are you sure? You may be surprised at the secrets they keep. Would you cover for them? No matter what? Even if you would be destroying lives?

This is a suspense filled read that kept my interested until the end. This is my first book by Michele Campbell and I look forward to reading more from her!

Thanks to Michele Campbell, St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for this ARC.
