What to expect
Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Mad by Chloe Esposito, read by Emily Atack.
Seven days of sin. Seven days of secrets. Seven days to steal her sister's life.
Beth has always been the golden girl, leaving her identical twin, Alvie, in her shadow. She has everything Alvie ever wanted - the money, the hot husband, the cute baby, the fast car.
So when she invites Alvie for seven sun-drenched days at her luxury villa in Sicily, Alvie accepts. Just because Alvie can't stand Beth doesn't mean she can't enjoy a slice of her decadent lifestyle.
But her usually goody-two-shoes twin has a hidden agenda. And when the sisters swap identities for a day, it ends badly for Beth. Very badly.
It's Alvie's chance to steal the life that she deserves . . .
If she can get away with it.
