***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Nineteen-year-old Ivy Redd’s talent with a needle and thread has earned her a spot on a coveted reality TV art competition set in New York’s Metropolitan Museum. The prize: a significant amount of money and instant acceptance into the Masterpiecers, the school that ensures new artists fame and fortune. Her talent has also thrust her and her twin sister, Aster, into the spotlight.
Not that Aster needed help with becoming a media favorite. She managed that on her own by running over a wanted mobster. She told the police it was self-defense, because she couldn’t tell them the truth—the truth would make her sister look bad.
Locked in an Indiana jail to await her trial, Aster watches Ivy on the small TV hanging in the dayroom. It’s the highlight of her day, until she finds out what her sister truly thinks of her. Then, observing her sister becomes a punishment far crueler than imprisonment.
I couldn’t connect with Ivy. She seemed too cold and a bit selfish.
I felt for Aster but couldn’t connect with her either.
Then there was the “attraction” between Ivy and Chase. I didn’t feel it.
I felt like there was a lot of things going on behind the scenes that I wasn’t privy to cause it wasn’t explained. Almost like the reader should have known.
The story was unique.
I liked the twin aspect.
The book was well written.
It kept me guessing, which I really liked!
All that being said, I really ended up enjoying the book. It did leave me guessing and the ending was not what I expected. I would like to read the next book. I give this 4 stars.
