Double Identity

This month's book club selection is a science fiction thriller by Margaret Peterson Haddix.  Bethany's parents have always been overprotective, but now her mother is weeping, and they are driving through the night like they are running away from something.  When they leave her at the home of an aunt she's never met, she begins to question everything about her life.

People in this small town are startled when they see Bethany, remarking on her resemblance to someone named Elizabeth.  Who is Elizabeth, and why does her name make Aunt Myrlie so sad?  Why have her Bethany's parents seemingly abandoned her, and who is the dark shadow dogging her footsteps?

You'll have to read the book to find out!  This one will keep you on the edge of your seat as try to figure out the answers.
