From the Publisher: When the sixteen-year-old runaway Chap is mistaken for a missing boy named Cassiel, his life changes dramatically. Chap takes on Cassiel's identity, gaining the family and friends he's always dreamed of having. But becoming someone else isn't as easy as he hoped-and Chap isn't the only one hiding a secret. As he teeters on the brink of discovery and begins to unravel the mystery behind Cassiel's disappearance, Chap realizes that he's in much deeper danger than he could have imagined.

After all, you can't just steal a life and expect to get away with it.

Award-winning author Jenny Valentine delivers an explosive mystery where dark secrets, betrayal, and loss pave the way for one teen's chance at redemption.
3 Stars

Previously published in the UK as The Double Life of Cassiel Roadnight, Double  is the thrilling tale of a stolen identity – that ends up leading Chap Hathaway right where he belongs.

This is definitely not my usual sort of book, but I really enjoyed it. The writing is fast paced and, while the supporting character development left a lot to be desired, I really felt as if I understood everything Chap was thinking and feeling.  I also really enjoy a good mystery so it was fun trying to work out what really happened to Cassiel alongside Chap.

If you’re looking for a quick mystery, this is one to pick up.
