Hey CelebSecrets4U readers,

ABC Family has a new hot series coming up next month titled The Lying Game.Separated at birth, identical twins Emma Becker and Sutton Mercer have led very different lives, each oblivious to the others existence until circumstances bring them back together. Yearning for the family she never had, Emma agrees to help Sutton with her plan to find their birth parents, setting in motion a web of secrecy and lies.

In the premiere episode, Emma, a kind-hearted foster kid, learns she has an identical twin sister, Sutton. Unlike Emma, Sutton was adopted by wealthy parents and is seemingly living every teenagers dream life. While both girls are eager to meet each other, Sutton feels it is better to wait until she tells her adoptive parents what she has discovered. Emma and Sutton agree to continue their separate lives, that is until Emma has an unfortunate encounter with her foster family that forces her to flee to the only person she can turn to Sutton.

Upon meeting in person for the first time, Sutton talks Emma into stepping into her life for a few days while she pursues a lead on the identity of their birth mother. Though doubtful that shell be able to play the part of a rich girl, Emma agrees and enters what once was only a fantasy world to her. But while the girls may look exactly alike, their mannerisms are far from identical: Emma is polite and gracious to her new family, unlike Sutton, who has seemingly taken them for granted. And socially Emma must now play the part of the it girl, something she has never been, and soon learns the consequences that come with the title. To complicate matters further, Emma discovers that Sutton is keeping some secrets on her own.

Though their plan is going seemingly well, on the night theyre to meet up again, Sutton fails to show. Now Emma has to decide whether to come clean about her true identity — and risk her own safety in the hope of uncovering her sisters whereabouts, along with the truth of the separation — or continue to play the part of the perfect girl and hope her sister knows what she is doing.
