Sometimes I forget for an hour or two that she's with me. Sometimes I convince myself that she was only a dream. Or that I'm crazy.
For as long as Lily Winston can remember, she has never been alone. Iris, a shadowy figure who mimics Lily's movements and whispers in her ear, is with her always—but invisible to the rest of the world. Iris is Lil
But when Lily's father is killed in a tragic accident, his cryptic final words suggest that he and Lily's mother have been keeping secrets of their own. Suddenly, Iris begins pushing Lily more than ever, possessing her thoughts and urging her to put together the pieces of a strange puzzle her father left behind. As she searches for answers, Lily finds herself drawn to Ty Collier, a mysterious new boy in town. Together, Lily and Ty must untangle a web of deception to discover the truth about her family, Iris . . . and Lily's own identity
I was excited to read The Shadow Girl, especially because of how intriguing the plot was. Although I didn’t enjoy the romance as much as I wanted to, the mystery aspect of the book pulled me in.
Lily has always had a girl named Iris talking to her and giving her advice throughout her life. When her father passes away, she realizes there may be more to herself and Iris that she ever imagined.
The mystery in the book was great! It had just the right amount of suspense and I felt myself quickly turning the pages. Lily’s dad ended up dying pretty early on in the book, so she was left to turn to her mom for answers. I didn’t like her mom at all and I feel like she should have just been honest with Lily about her past. I started to guess what the mystery behind Lily was, but when it was revealed, some of the details about it shocked me.
Lily was an okay character, but I really didn’t like the love triangle. It was pretty obvious who Lily would choose from the start, and she dragged one guy along, while she was “figuring out her feelings”. I felt so bad for that character, and I think it was unfair of her to drag him along like she did. The romance was pretty frequent throughout the book, too, and I wish it had focused more on the mystery element.
The Shadow Girl tells a great, suspenseful mystery. Although I didn't like the romance, I’d still recommend The Shadow Girl to anyone looking for an interesting read full of suspense. I’d give The Shadow Girl 3 out of 5 flowers.
