Perfect Lies by Kiersten White

Genre:  YA Paranormal Thriller
Mind Games Series, Book 2

Note:  This is the second book in a series.  Reading anything below might spoil the first book's plot.

Description (taken from Goodreads):
Annie and Fia are ready to fight back.

The sisters have been manipulated and controlled by the Keane Foundation for years, trapped in a never ending battle for survival. Now they have found allies who can help them truly escape. After faking her own death, Annie has joined a group that is plotting to destroy the Foundation. And Fia is working with James Keane to bring his father down from the inside.

But Annie's visions of the future can't show her who to trust in the present. And though James is Fia's first love, Fia knows he's hiding something. The sisters can rely only on each other - but that may not be enough to save them.

With the thrilling ending of Mind Games, the Keane Foundation believes Fia has killed her own sister.  But all Fia ever wanted was a life outside of the Keane Foundation for her and her sister.  And her perfect instincts told her she could make it possible for one of them.  So she chose to free her sister.

Annie has joined a group known as the Lerner group that is focused on destroying the Keane Foundation.  While waiting for Fia to make contact, Annie spends her time trying to control her visions to help find other girls with abilities.  But what she sees isn't anything good, and it makes her question where Fia's loyalties lie.

Fia has perfect instincts and no one can see her future because she doesn't plan anything before doing it.  So in the process of trying to bring down the Keane Foundation, she finds herself helping them to stay under their radar.  She trusts James to help her bring a stop to this deadly organization.  But are her feelings skewing the reality of James; is he really helping her?

This book is way too short.  The number one thing I absolutely loved about this book is it doesn't follow a typical timeline.  Annie's is set weeks in the past while Fia's is days in the past, but they both lead to a specific, explosive turning point.  It's kind of like two people building a puzzle without sharing any of the pieces until the end.  And even though it's predictable, it's still enjoyable.  However, I'm still not sure I like Fia and Annie all that much...

A really quick series to read that I think will give you some interest.  Anyone looking for a paranormal thriller should enjoy this one.
