    One thought on “The Opposite of You”

    1. I love reading books about family relationships and the thing that caught my eye with this book is thatit depicts the relationship between identical twins; one who follows the rules, and one who doesn't.Bex and her identical twin sister Naomi used to be close. They used to be able to finish each other’s sentences, used to know exactly what the other was thinking. They were a matching pair.And then something changed.When Naomi walks out of the house the night before their last GCSE exam and doe [...]

    2. I really didn't enjoy this book at all - as you can tell from the rating, unfortunately. It was boring, there was no plot and although the romance aspect was the most pleasing part of this book, I found it quite unrealistic for 15 year olds. The best thing about this book was how fast it was over, because it's so short 😬//Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review//

    3. I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewWhile I really liked how this was written, I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would because I just don't think it was for me. The narrator seemed very young for her age, and was a couple years younger than me anyway, so at times it was too juvenile for my liking. The mystery was decent, but it could have been a lot more fleshed out in my opinion. I still quite liked it though.

    4. I received this free from the publisher via NetGalleyBex and Naomi used to be really close, as close as twins can be. However, something changed between them and they grew apart. Bex didn't really notice this change until it was too late. Until Naomi missed her last GCSE exam and no one could find her. Bex had to dive into Naomi's double life and their shared memories trying to find her. She realises that she didn't really know Naomi as well as the thought she did. The Opposite of You started ou [...]

    5. What drew my attention to “The Opposite of You” was the beautiful cover and, of course, I always wanted to be a twin and have that special bond everybody always talks about. To be able to speak with each other in your mind and no one knows what’s going on. Bex and Naomi are those twins, from early age on, they talked to each other in their heads and were able to help without really being there. When they got older this bond got broken, by new friends and a lot of misunderstandings. But whe [...]

    6. This book was as bad as it was good. It started off well and the story seemed to have a lot of potential so I was excited to carry on but then the pacing began to seem off - it was stagnant at times and moved too quickly at others. The characters didn’t develop much from when we first met them and the ending happens so abruptly that it’s totally underwhelming. The relationship of the twins is portrayed really well, the drive and struggle for individuality but also the fear of wanting to stay [...]

    7. This was a really different book for me. I've never read about identical twins before so I was intrigued. Having recently read The Upside of Unrequited, and loving the sister relationship in that book I was excited to read this. However, I have to say this just fell flat for me. Let's start with the characters. I just couldn't relate to them at all. I don't know if it's my age, but I just couldn't understand the decisions that the characters made. I found myself literally screaming 'WHY ARE YOU [...]

    8. An interesting story about the person you pretend to be and the person you really are, with a not really explained twin connection.This isn't exactly what I thought it would be, but what I read kept me entertained so I'd say it's worth giving it a try. Some warnings however for underage drinking and recreational drug use as well as assault.

    9. *ebook given through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*Wow! Even though it was a short one,this book did not disappoint me! I enjoyed it all the time! It could have been better written,but I liked the characters very much. All in all,a book I will recommend to anyone who likes a short good read!

    10. I haven't read a lot of books including twins before, and I was eager to get stuck into this as the story is something unlike anything I have read before. Morgan presented the bond between twins so well and this aspect of the book was excellently explored, as well as the kind of supernatural element, which was interesting and gave a sharp edge to the story. I thought that the different characters of Naomi and Bex were really well created; the dynamic between them was interesting to read about. I [...]

    11. I enjoyed reading this book. It kept me up late at nights, I would tell myself: 'just one more chapter,' but when it came, I would say 'one more'. It's one of those books. Every chapter ends on a cliffhanger. I really liked reading it though :)

    12. Bex and Naomi are identical twins, but whilst Bex knows exactly what she wants in life and how she is going to get it, Naomi just doesn't. In fact, Naomi couldn't be further apart, with very little direction and no real connection with who she is. All she really knows for sure is that she is trapped with a face the same as someone else's.The story progresses very quickly, and largely the twin aspect of the story is easily forgotten, which was a shame - it's a cool, interesting concept to play ar [...]

    13. Original review posted here* I have been given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review *Bex and Naomi are identical twins who’ve grown up to have very different personalities: Bex has friends, wants to be an artist and is the good twin, while Naomi is constantly getting in trouble and her life seems to be a bit of a mystery. When she disappears the day of their last GCSE exam, Bex delves into Naomi’s secrets to try and find her before she gets herself into too much trouble.This [...]

    14. The dynamic between the twins and their loyalty to one another as they started to get to know who each other really were was great. Suggesting that twins can read each other's mind though, or know what each other are thinking when their miles and miles apartI'm a twin, and even I had to suspend my disbelief for that one!

    15. I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This was the story of Bex and Naomi, two identical twins that grew apart over the years. When Naomi disapears after a fight with her family, Bex is forced to face their past and realises how little she actually knows her sister.This book was fine, just fine. I enjoyed the characters and the sisterly bond.The writing was simple but effective.It only took me a couple hours to read it and I enjoyed it fine but I don't feel like I [...]

    16. Bex and Naomi are identical twins leading opposite lives, though Bed doesn't realise this, at first. Supposed to be having an important exam, Bex sits it to realise Naomi never turned up.Bex soon takes it upon herself to unearth her sister's secrets and find her after her parents have reported her missing to the police and Bex meets a nice friend there, Josh who listens to her troubles and they commiserate their situations together.Naomi however, has a backstage pass to a festival though plans s [...]
