Publisher's Summary

In 29 years, Rose Darlen has never spent a moment apart from her twin sister, Ruby. She has never gone for a solitary walk or had a private conversation. Yet, in all that time, she has never once looked into Ruby's eyes. Joined at the head, "The Girls" (as they are known in their small town) attempt to lead a normal life, but can't help being extraordinary. Now almost 30, Rose and Ruby are on the verge of becoming the oldest living craniopagus twins in history, but they are remarkable for a lot more than their unusual sisterly bond.

Critic Reviews

"This unusual novel is so satisfying...a graceful meditation on partnership identity and enduring love." (The Times)
"Perfectly pitched...an utterly heartwarming tale, without any traces of mawkishness. Anyone with a sister will relate to this." (Marie Claire) "This incredible story seems real because of the outstanding characterizations." (AudioFile)

Compelling

An original idea and compelling story, moving without being sentimental, and often humorous. The details of the twins' lives were so convincing, I had to keep reminding myself that it was fiction!
