Description: Something very strange starts happening in Nightshade the summer that the eldest Giordano sister, Rose, gets a job working at Dr. Franken's research laboratory. People are starting to see double. Doppelgängers of Nightshade residents are popping up all over town. Daisy, Rose and Poppy think it's a coincidence, until the rumors start that their father, who disappeared several years ago, has been spotted in town.

 Meanwhile, Daisy's beau, Ryan is spending all of his time training for football, and like the other guys on the team, he's grown enormous almost overnight. Samantha Devereux's boyfriend's neck has doubled in size since school ended. Could the football players be resorting to extreme measures to win?

 Between summer jobs, sugar rushes, and beach parties, the Giordano girls get to the bottom of these mysteries and more.

Review: Things get even stranger in Nightshade. I enjoyed this book a lot because now the Giordano girls have summer jobs, and who can't relate to working over the summer. No one wants to work a summer job when they rather enjoy being a teenager.

The author always surprises me with what happens to Daisy in each book. The strange factor has doubled in this book. Not only to Daisy but also with Ryan. Daisy always freaks out about the strange things, but I love how she handles the situation, and how she is calm about everything. 

I'll try not to give anything away. I have read many books like theses, but this was the first book I've heard to the term doppelgangers. It was very refreshing to read her spin on it.
