Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon US

Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body. Until Gray finds a way back inside her own body, she’s stuck being Charlene every twenty-hour hours. Her sister has left precise instructions on how Gray should dress and behave. Looking like a prep isn’t half as bad as hanging out with Charlene’s snotty friends and gropey boyfriend. The “normals” of McKinley High might be quick to write her behavior off as post-traumatic stress, but warlock Raj McKenna is the only person who suspects Gray has returned from the dead. Now Gray has to solve the mystery of her death and resurrection and disentangle herself from Charlene’s body before she disappears for good. ***Entangled is a young adult paranormal fantasy romance suitable for ages 15 and up.***

I'd actually read this when it first came out on my kindle but totally forgot about it until I received an ARC copy of it. I'm so glad I got this book again though because I remembered how much it intrigued me and how much I wanted to read the next one in the series.
So starting with the story, basically its about Graylee and her twin sister Charlene who even though they look exactly the same they might as well be from different planets. Graylee is the nice, sweet one so obviously Charlene's the psychotic, popular one. Anyways some stuff happens Graylee ends up accidently dying and then their mum goes visiting some 'contact' to try and bring her back. Obviously though magic is tricky and Gray ends up sharing the body of Charlene for 24 hour intervals. Skipping to the end they think they've got everything sorted but no this is no fairy tale, is there ever such a thing as an happy ending?

Okay so I loved this book the first time around and I loved reading it again, I still found parts of the book surprising and still wanted to see how it all ended (even though I new it wasn't any different from the first time round I was still on the edge of my seat). This story is definitely worth a read and at such a reasonable price on Amazon whats not to love? There where parts that I didn't find believable, such as the way the sisters treated each other, but I've watched Jeremy Kyle so maybe family members do act like that toward each other. I would have like more background information on the characters as it felt like I was just thrust straight into the main event, some times I need to be eased in to it.

I loved this book despite its flaws and went straight on to by the next in the series.
