Beautiful Lies Flash-Fiction Finalists!

In Jessica Warman’s novel Beautiful Lies, identical twins Alice and Rachel are connected by much more than their looks. When one twin goes missing from their seemingly idyllic suburb, the other begins to suffer horrible injuries—even though no one has touched her. As she searches to find her sister, the twin left behind discovers that nothing in their so-called normal neighborhood is what it seems.

Inspired by Beautiful Lies, we asked you to write a descriptive scene that feels menacing and creepy for five different settings.
