In Stranger With My Face, sixteen-year-old Laurie has a cute boyfriend and hangs out with a cool group of friends--she has everything a teen-age girl could ask for. But things start to fall apart, when Laurie's boyfriend swears he saw her with another guy, even though Laurie was at home, sick. Other unexplained sightings convince Laurie that she has a double. She discovers that she was adopted at birth, and her twin sister Lia bounced from foster home to foster home, growing more bitter-and more dangerous. Lia visits Laurie through astral projection. When Laurie's friends start to get hurt, Laurie suspects Lia's trying to take over her life.
