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 Lily’s secret. But when Lily’s father is killed in a tragic accident, his cryptic final words suggest that he and Lily’s mother have been hiding 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.
The Shadow Girl is a chilling, mind-bending mystery filled with stunning twists, haunting reveals, and a realistic setting with a supernatural touch that’s perfect for fans of Before I Fall and If I Stay.

Who is my shadow girl? Hmm. I guess she’s Sasha, and she remembers to do her yoga everyday and she never gets migraines. Does that work? Is that insane? 😀

I don’t have one, but now I think I need to look for one. One who encourages me to get off my duff more and eat healthily!
I need a shadow girl bad, especially if she could help get some stuff done cause working 75hrs a week means crap at home is just stuck in unfinished zone. LOL Seriously though, this sounds so interesting.
