Creepy Books About Twins: Am I My Sibling’s Keeper?

They say there’s no bond as strong as the one between siblings. Some of our favorite literary characters are siblings who have each other’s backs. But what about the opposite? What if you find yourself not able to trust your sibling, or worse, find out your sibling intends to get rid of you? Creepy, we know! We took a look at some of the most sinister siblings we could think of, and let’s just say you wouldn’t want these characters to have your back . . . you might just find a knife in it.

And the longer she’s in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous—and most people aren’t good at keeping them. Which is why, in Echo Ridge, it’s safest to keep your secrets to yourself.

The Darkest Corners

There are ghosts around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about what happened that last summer. Callie never left.

She can handle staring into the face of her demons—and if she parties hard enough, maybe one day they’ll disappear for good. Tessa and Callie haven’t talked about what they saw that night since it happened. After the trial, Callie drifted and Tessa moved, and childhood friends just have a way of losing touch.
