When Sara's twin sister, Jennifer, disappears with Sara's passport and luggage, she finds herself having to juggle two lives and pretend to be her twin. Jennifer's life is chaotic with a married lover and angry landlord to contend with. Can Sara keep up the charade until her sister returns? And what happens when she finds her sister's life more exciting than her own?
Sara and her twin Jennifer have always been like chalk and cheese. At high school, Sara would keep her head down and get on with her work, while Jennifer liked to skip class and hang out with the cool kids.
Now, at the age of thirty, nothing much has changed. Jennifer flits from job to job, relying on Sara or her parents to keep her afloat, while Sara ploughs on as secretary for a small firm of solicitors.
But now Jennifer has gone too far. With her sister’s stolen passport, she’s gone on the well-earned holiday meant for someone else. And what’s more, Sara finds herself having to pretend to be Jennifer and deal with a married lover, an angry landlord and a whole heap of trouble.
Can Sara keep up the charade until Jennifer returns? Should she? And what happens when she begins to find her pretend life more fun than her real one?
