From the moment Laura Rivers steps foot into Englewood High, she notices the stares—and they aren’t the typical once-overs every pretty new girl endures. The students seem confused and…spooked. Whispers echoing through the halls confirm that something is seriously off. “That new girl looks just like her,” they say.
 
It turns out Laura has a doppelgänger, and it isn't just anyone—it's Sarah Castro-Tanner, the girl who killed herself by jumping into the Navasink River one year ago.
 
Laura is determined not to let the gossip ruin her chances of making a fresh start. Thanks to her charming personality and California tan, she catches the eye of Englewood’s undisputed golden boy, Charlie Sanders, and it’s only a matter of time before they make their relationship official.
 
But something is making Charlie and his friends paranoid—and Laura soon discovers it has to do with Sarah Castro-Tanner.
 
What really happened to Sarah? Why is Charlie unraveling? And how does Laura Rivers fit into it all?
 
After all, she’s the dead ringer for a dead girl.

Praise for Dead Ringer:
"Rosen crafts a wild ride that keeps you guessing with every chapter. While the twists and turns are dynamite, it's the deep and original characters that will truly capture your mind and heart with their singular voice. A triumphant debut." —Jillian Lauren, New York Times best-selling author of Some Girls: My Life in a Harem and Everything You Ever Wanted

"Thriller lovers won't be able to put down Jessie Rosen's fantastic debut, Dead Ringer. Twisty and creepy (in the best way!), it's a page turner from start to finish. I'm anxiously waiting for the next book!" —Jeanne Leitenberg, writer for ABC Family's Chasing Life

"Don't be fooled by the picture-perfect teens who roam the halls of Englewood High; beneath the surface lurk dark secrets and shocking truths that Jessie Rosen reveals with the delicious, slow-burn timing of a maestro. Dead Ringer reminded me of the Christopher Pike novels I devoured as a teen, in the very best way. This book will leave you with chills." —Una LaMarche, author of Five Summers, Like No Other, Don't Fail Me Now, and Unabrow: Misadventures of a Late Bloomer

"Jessie Rosen’s Dead Ringer reminds me of a Hitchcock movie transferred to high school. As the book tangles through its different points of view, I bit my nails, tensely wondering which character to trust as I discovered the next twists waiting on the next page. Buy this book if you want to feel like that (and you do)."  —David Iserson, author of Firecracker

"Jessie Rosen has masterfully crafted this story about manipulation, obssession, and lies, and just when you think you're starting to figure it out, something happens to turn it all upside down. I raced toward the end but hated when it was over." Lucy Keating, author of Dreamology

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

“Pretty Little Liars meets The Breakfast Club” (EW.com) in this “flat-out addictive” (RT Book Reviews) story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive.
 
Pay close attention and you might solve this.
On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
    Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.
    Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.
    Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
    Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
    And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.
 
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

And don’t miss Karen McManus's newest novel Two Can Keep a Secret , on shelves spring 2019, that Bustle says is "a must-read YA thriller if you love Riverdale and Sharp Objects."
