Fake ID by Walter Sorrells

For as long as she can remember, Chass (but that's not her real name) has been on the run with her mother. They change identities frequently and rarely stay in one place for long. Her mother won't tell her about her father. She won't say why they are always on the move. She won't even tell her daughter what her real name is.

This fast-paced book was an entertaining read. It wasn't really very good, it is very shallow and for the most part I didn't care what was happening to the paperdoll-like characters, yet as a casual read when you know you are likely to be interrupted a lot, it is fine. It is also a very fast read (likely due to the fact one requires few brain cells to process it) and can be finished in a couple hours. The general air of melodrama was bugging me by the end though, and fact that the plot twists were totally obvious.
