Shift by Em Bailey

ISBN: 9781405261166
Publisher: Egmont
Pages: 304

"There were two things everyone knew about Miranda Vaile before she'd even started at our school. The first was that she had no parents - they were dead. And the second was that they were dead because Miranda had killed them."

Olive used to be the school queen bee. But that was before her breakdown. Now she's the class loner, and can only watch as new girl Miranda latches on to Olive's ex-best friend Katie. Soon Miranda is talking like Katie, dressing like Katie - even going out with Katie's boyfriend. 

And then Katie dies. Everyone seems to believe it was a tragic accident, but OIive isn't so sure. What if the wild rumours are true? What if Miranda really is a killer...?

I really enjoyed reading Shift by Em Bailey however, I must admit that it was quite odd at times! Despite some of the complex & odd occurrences that don't really make sense until finishing it, Shift is an easy, enjoyable read, that I would definitely read again! Even though I enjoyed reading Shift, I didn't have a favourite character as such. I did find reading about Miranda Vaile quite interesting though, as because Shift is written from Olive's point of view, the reader gets to read multiple perspectives on Miranda Vaile, one being Olive's and another being the rest of Olive's classmates. I love the cover of Shift! It shows Olive's uncertainties well, whilst also portraying Miranda's transition from new girl to queen bee and how she changes her attitude and appearance along the way.
