Mad World

by Hannah McBride


Book 1 in the Mad World Series

I'm Madison.

I spent the last seventeen years in a trailer with my mom as she rolled from one addiction to the next.

All I wanted was to survive high school and get out of this place. Finding out I had a long lost twin sister on the other side of the country seemed like something out of a movie.

Too bad I didn't realize it was a horror movie.

Now I'm Madelaine.

We were only supposed to switch lives for a summer. But then the unthinkable happened and now I have the chance to be my twin for the rest of my life. I get the fancy house, the rich father, and the elite school.

But all of those things come with a price I don't think I can afford.

Maybe taking over my dead twin sister's life isn't as easy as I thought it would be.

I would like to thank Hannah McBride and her team for sending me an ARC of Mad World, in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Mad World by Hannah McBride centers around 17 year old Madison (Maddie), an intelligent, strong willed young woman who lives in a trailer with her drug addict mom. Maddie is determined to leave the dangerous city she lives in, and works hard in school in hopes of a scholarship. When doing research for a class project, she stumbles upon a news article with a picture of a young woman who looks identical to her. Her identical twin she knew nothing about. After sending her a message, and meeting Madelaine, they decide to switch places for the summer, so Maddie can live in the luxury Madelaine has grown up in. Only, a dream summer turns upside town when Maddie discovers her twin has died. Maddie has the chance to live a life she never imagined in her sisters place: the big house, the fancy, elite school, the rich father ... but can Maddie give up who she is for it? Is it worth the asking price?

Okay. Deep breath. Big emotions are happening even hours after finishing this book, and I'm still not okay.
