9780553570106: The Roommate (Sweet Valley University(R))

Isabella Ricci has found the perfect roommate.  Quiet, clean, and considerate, Lisa Fontaine is  totally interested in Isabella's life. But maybe she's  a little too interested...
Lisa  starts to dress and talk like Isabella, and  instantly hits it off with all her Sweet Valley friends,  especially best friend Jessica Wakefield. But Lisa  crosses the line when she takes Isabella's  clothes, cuts and dyes her hair just like Isabella's, and  sneaks into Isabella's boyfriend Danny Wyatt's  room.
Suddenly Isabella is scared.  Lisa seems dead set on taking her friends, her  identity...maybe even her life.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Where am I? Isabella's cheek was pressed against  something smooth and soft--leather. Slowly she  opened her eyes and blinked a few times. People  rushed by, a few of them looking at her with  disapproving glances. When her vision cleared, she  spotted the wall of mailboxes several feet away. I'm in  the student union.Isabella swung her legs around  and sat up, her muscles aching. The events of the  previous day came crushing down on her like an  avalanche. It's not a nightmare, she thought. It's  all real. Isabella sobbed quietly as she  remembered Danny's cold eyes, the Thetas rejecting her.  It was all too painful to think about.

"It  looks like someone had a little too much to drink last  night," a stranger whispered loudly to the  person she was walking with. The stares and rude  comments bounced off Isabella, wearing her heartache  like a shield. She'd been through it all--nothing  else could possibly hurt her. Isabella struggled to  stand up. Her body was stiff and her clothes were  still damp. The burning sensation in her stomach  reminded her that she hadn't eaten for nearly  twenty-four hours. But the physical discomfort  couldn't even compare to the pain that was in her  heart. Isabella slipped out the back door, praying she  wouldn't run into anyone she knew. The bright  sunlight blinded her, and even though it was warm on  the surface of her body, deep beneath her skin the  chill was still there. She shivered convulsively,  certain that a fever was coming on. Did Lisa leave  the apartment yet? In the distance Isabella  looked toward the window to their apartment. The  morning sun reflected brightly against the glass,  making it impossible to tell if it was safe for her to  go in. I have to get in there one last time--I  need that box. It was already too late to change  Jessica or Danny's mind about things, but there was  always the chance that the police might listen to  what Isabella had to say. Isabella hid herself  behind the dumpster on the side of the building,  waiting for Lisa to come out. And finally she did.  Dressed in a wraparound floral skirt, white  bodysuit, jean jacket, and high heels, Lisa strutted out  of the apartment building, sliding a pair of  designer sunglasses on her face. On the outside, she  was the perfect picture of confidence and class, but  on the inside, Isabella knew that ice ran through  her veins.

"It's show time," Isabella  whispered to herself as Lisa walked away. Stealthily  she moved from behind the dumpster and entered the  vestibule of the building, careful not to be seen.  She had to hurry--there was no telling how much  time she had before Lisa returned.
