“Double Identity,” by Margaret Peterson Haddix

“Double Identity,” by Margaret Peterson Haddix is a fascinating science fiction mystery novel.

Book Cover of Double Identity by Margaret Peterson HaddixJust before Bethany turns thirteen her parents begin to act strangely. Her mother cries constantly and her father won't let her go anywhere alone. Then one day Bethany's parents pack her into the car and take her to live with an aunt that she has never met before. When they leave they merely tell her that here she will be safe, and that she couldn't know where they are going.

The mystery deepens when her father sends her package containing four different birth certificates with four different names, and thousands of dollars in cash. Not only that but everyone who sees Bethany seems to think that she looks like someone they used to know, someone who is now dead. Bethany must unravel this mystery and figure out what is happening, and why she is in danger.

Margaret Haddix develops “Double Identity” in a very skillful manner. As the plot progresses she is careful to reveal just enough information to satisfy the reader and yet keep the ending unforeseen. I really enjoyed Haddix' writing style and the interesting characters she has populated the plot with. “Double Identity” should satisfy any science fiction or mystery fan.

this book is amazing i didn't even like to read books but now i can't put it down the best book i have ever read i'll never forget it i hope there is a movie on it

NathanKP said...

I enjoyed reading "Double Identity." I think it would make a good movie because it would be creepy to see people's reactions to Bethany as a clone.

this book is really good... i loved how M.P.H
(margaret peterson haddix)wrote it as a mystery and a sceince fiction novel.

NathanKP said...

I agree. It is a great combination, and she worked it very well.

Thanks for commenting.

i love this book!
if i were u i would read this book if u,much like me, enjoy books that has mystery, secrets, and science.

P.S.
i could not stop reading it, it was 2 good
i would give it 5 stars all the way around.
but that's just me.

NathanKP said...

Yes, I understand why you would give it five stars. For me, though, I have read so many books that I have to classify them into categories of great. I have read such amazing books that they are many times better than "Double Identity".

That's why I have different numbers of stars to differentiate between those books that I liked and those that completely blew me away. Four stars is pretty good though.
