Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body.
Until Gray finds a way back inside her own body, she’s stuck being Charlene every twenty-hour hours. Her sister has left precise instructions on how Gray should dress and behave. Looking like a prep isn’t half as bad as hanging out with Charlene’s snotty friends and gropey boyfriend.
The “normals” of McKinley High might be quick to write her behavior off as post-traumatic stress, but warlock Raj McKenna is the only person who suspects Gray has returned from the dead.
Now Gray has to solve the mystery of her death and resurrection and disentangle herself from Charlene’s body before she disappears for good.
Isn’t the cover stunning? Beautifully Amazing.
In the beginning of Entangled, you will learn that Char and Gray are completely polar opposites, as being identical twins, they are nothing alike.
The first of the story was hard to follow, didn’t know much about characters before the story starting unfolding, scenes were jumpy, but I think it would be a good idea to put stars or something when a scene ends, so that way some confusion can be cleared up. However, I think the story line is great! Once I got out of 5th chapter I kept wanting to know what was next, what secrets were coming out, and what was behind the madness. I also loved the fact that there wasn’t any “instant” love sorta thing, sure there was some lusting, but what teens doesn’t do that?
Char does seem to be selfish, and thinks about herself a lot, but yet Gray is suppose to be in the background as everything gets settled, and figured out, which I guess is understandable.
Raj, who wouldn’t love this character? He is complicated, but who isn’t? He has to be the one character that is interesting to read about, well him, and Gray as they both build character about the same time.
It is enjoyable, I would suggest this book to people who have patience with plot and like for the story to build. I hope I can get my hands on the next sequel because I will definitely read it, I really want to know what happens next!
