"Hayley is going to have
the best year ever. After years of careful planning, she's ready to
serve as student council president AND editor-in-chief of the newspaper.
Ivy League, here she comes!
However, just before student council
elections, someone creates a fake facebook profile for Hayley and
starts posting inappropriate photos and incriminating updates. It must
be the work of a highly skilled Photoshopper, but the attention to
detail is scary. The embarrassing photos of "Hayley" in her bathing suit
reveal a birthmark on her back--a birth mark Hayley has never shown in
public. . . .
The situation escalates until Hayley's mother
reveals some shocking information. Hayley isn't an only child: She has a
twin sister who was adopted by a different family. And that's not all.
Soon, Hayley discovers that her long-lost sister isn't just playing a
prank--she's plotting to take over Hayley's life . . . by any means
Identity Theft was a good, fast paced, suspenseful read. I recommend it for the younger teen reader as it is very easy to read and "goosebump-ish/ fear street-ish" There were quite a few stereotypical teenage scenarios but overall Identity Theft had interesting characters and story line.
