Reviewed by Me for TeensReadToo. For a girl who has never spent a night away from her parents, she's suddenly hustled into the car by her sad-looking father, subjected to listening to her sobbing mother, and unceremoniously dropped off in the middle of the night in a town she's never heard of, at the home of a woman claiming to be her Aunt Myrlie.
Her parents are a lot older than her friend's parents, and Bethany is sure that her parent's siblings are all dead. So who is this woman claiming to be her Aunt, and why has she never heard of her before? Why won't her mother stop crying? Why does her dad seem so eager to get away from the house in Sanderfield?
And who the heck is Elizabeth, the name she overheard her father and Myrlie discussing? All these questions and more are only the tip of the iceberg in Margaret Peterson Haddix's newest novel, a wonderful young adult thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed. The twists and turns are unpredictable and unexpected--the conclusion one I never saw coming. Overall, a great suspensful read for teens and adults alike! Sep 27, Aysia Schroeder rated it it was amazing. The book, "Double Identity", is told by a 12 year old girl named Bethany.
Bethany thinks she is an average girl with two parents, and gets anything she wants. She loves to swim and come up with big words that no one will understand. Not everything is as normal as it seems to the outside world. Everything changes when one day her parents put her in the car and drive for hours. Soon Bethany comes to find out why everyone in Saunderfield, Illinois looks at her so differently and that she is in fact, not an original like everyone else in the world is.
There are a few times that she does act like one, like when she throws a tantrum that she wants her parents back. Aunt Myrlie is just a normal older woman. The setting of the story mostly takes place in Saunderfield, Illinois. The setting of this story is everything about the story because none of the pieces would have fell together if it did not take place here.
I think the theme in this story is to show that there are a lot of things in this world that are unknown.
Things from people's past that we would never guess happened. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery.
It will really make you think about the possibilities of the outcome. This book is suitable for 7th graders and above. Double Identity is a very good book.

This book is full of fear, trust, and life-changing situations. I loved the suspense as I read, and it made me actually want to read it.
It is interesting to think that this could be a real-life situation. This book really made me think, and kept me interested. The lesson that I got from it, was the fact that you should be yourself no matter what. Bethany did not know what was happening, but she stood strong and never gave up. As many questions as she had for Myrlie, she did not ask and she was never rude.
She trusted her, and she had faith, that her parents would do everything that they could possibly do, to keep her safe. At first the story was slow, but before too long I was hooked.
She's worried her mom and dad are running from some kind of trouble, but she can't find out because they won't tell her where they are going.

I think adults would enjoy it, as well. It is full of thrills, and a question is being answered non-stop. The end of the book was not what I expected but it was okay. Elizabeth turned out to be someone that I never imagined. The whole time I was reading, I was thinking of all the possibilities.
Nothing seemed to turn out like I thought it would, but it was good. Anyone who reads this, will definitely be curious, and ask many questions.
If you like mysteries and suspenseful stories, this is the book for you. In the end, I was just as surprised as Bethany was and throughout the book, and was just as confused as she was! All of her questions were answered, and everything fell into place. I can not wait to read another book by Haddix, and I hope that I will be just as satisfied.
