I always thought it would be fun to be a twin or to have twins.     The Same But Different show how different twins truly can be.   While growing up in the same household with the same parents, Cady and Shelby are as different as night and day.   Shelby is the mover and shaker while Cady keeps everyone and everything in line.   I related more with Cady but would love to be as carefree as Shelby. The Flashpoint part of the story was a little odd to me.    I don't really get the whole flash mob thing and do not see the draw of it.    I did enjoy meeting the characters on the bus and imagining living with such a hodge podge of people in a small area. I thought I was picking up and easy chic-lit book.  I was wrong.  This is a romance, adventure, family drama, with a lot of fun story.

Different‘s a beautiful story about one woman’s adventure of a lifetime after putting her life on hold for others for so long. Cady’s journey from her mother’s deathbed to finding true love is set in a city that’s known world wide for its history as well as its eccentricity. In a way, it was the perfect way for Cady to start over, to find something colorful outside of her normal routine. With her sister by her side, Cady discovered lost family and true love, uncovered secrets, and (this is important, folks) moved on from them. She could’ve been bitter, let the lies that had been told swallow her whole. But she didn’t. It was, indeed, for the better. She gained new family, new friends, and a new life from it. ***Received from Tasty Book Tours for an honest review***

Cady has always done what is right for her family. She has taken care of them and the only living she has done is following the flash mob scene online. When she gets the chance she decides to go to America to really live. She wants to be someone different. Along with her twin sister she manages to get right in the middle of the flash mob scene and start living. Se has some family issues to work through and a new family to get to know. She even meets a new guy Reid. She soon sees she is being lied to and has to try and get the truth. Her sister goes missing and it's only with the help of Reid can she find her. She started out wanting to be different and have a change in her life, she just didn't realize how much things would change. Cady makes this an entertaining book to read. She has took care of her mother and been the responsible one of the twins. her sister has had the wild life and she has been the good girl. She now wants to have fun for once and maybe meet someone new. She likes Reid she just has trust issues and doesn't want to get involved only to have him eave later. She has good reasons for worrying. She may have been shy but in America part of the flash mob she finds her true self. She is very generous and loves to help people. I really liked getting to know her and watching her become so strong and open. There is romance in the book but it's not the main part by any means. For me this was about Cady learning who she really is. There is also danger that was a surprise to me. I figured something was going on just not how crazy some people are. There is also family secrets that have to come out. Some of them show how much someone can love another and was very touching. If you want a good book with a good plot be sure to try this one.
