Tanya is a 13 year old girl, who lives with her mum, dad and annoying older brother Lucas. He never leaves her alone, and he is always pestering her! She finds out that she actually has a long-lost identical twin sister, but they got separated at birth. Tanya can't wait to meet her sister, and she is so excited, but there is something not right about this. Little does Tanya know that a dark secret is being held back, but was it really her family holding it back or Tanya herself?


7. Screams

She closed her eyes and put her head in her hands. She heard someone running through the colossal trees, pushing their way through like a winding maze. Her mum was calling her name, and her dad was running in front, searching the trees. Miss Carter was just behind double checking everything that her parents had checked.
