The Lying Game
Summary: When Payson wakes up about two weeks before school starts, in a hospital, with some bruises and first degree burns on her arms and legs, she has no idea what happened to her. Actually, she doesn't remember a thing, period. Everything is tabula rasa.
Her parents tell her that she has been found unconscious outside a burning cabin on the outskirts of town. With her, there was also another person, probably of her same age, whose body was found inside the cabin completely charred. The police hasn't been able to identify her.
After two weeks her life seems almost back to normal. She starts school and even if she still hasn't regained her memories of the life she had before the 'accident', her family and her three best friends are there for her and everything seems great.
But when Payson slowly starts to remember things of a life that has nothing in common with the one she's actually living, her first barely there suspicions become certainties. The life she's living belongs to someone else, someone who was obviously identical to her, someone who is now dead. When she also starts to receive strange messages and she finds out that a lot of people have several reasons to hate her, Payson realizes that what was labeled as an accident is in reality anything but and that the person whose body was found and that she later finds out is in fact her twin sister, has actually been killed and that she may be next.
This is the description of the story: When Payson regains her lost memories, after having been found unconscious outside a burning cabin, and with these memories not matching what she's been told about her life, she realizes that she's living her long lost twin sister's life. Trying to find the one responsible for her death is difficult, especially if even the people closest to her have reasons to hate her.

I guess from the title you can imagine that this story is inspired by 'The Lying Game series' but the plot for this story won't really follow the books even if various things will be taken from it.
It won't follow the 'Make It or Break It' seasons either, it will be AU. Payson and the other girls will be simply high school students, not elite gymnasts. Payson will be a swimmer though - Payson without a sport and her competitiveness and determination to win wouldn't be Payson -. And Sasha will be - guess what? - her swimming coach and her English teacher.
There will also be some elements taken from 'Pretty Little Liars'(the TV Show, not the books), the anonymous messages first of all, but it won't follow its plot either.
P.S. Payson - as well as the other girls: Kaylie, Lauren, Emily and Kelly - will be 18 in the story so she will be a senior. Becca - Payson's sister - will be 16 and a sophomore in high school.( Read more...Collapse )
