Publisher's Summary

Kaeleigh and Raeanne are 16-year-old identical twins, the daughters of a district court judge father and politician mother running for U.S. Congress. Everything on the surface seems fine, but underneath run very deep and damaging secrets.
When the girls were nine, Daddy turned to his beloved Kaeleigh in ways a father never should. Raeanne needs to numb the pain of not being Daddy's favorite; Kaeleigh wants to do everything she can to feel something normal, even if it means cutting herself and vomiting after every binge.
How Kaeleigh and Raeanne figure out just what it means to be whole again when their entire world has been torn to shreds is the guts and heart of this powerful, disturbing, and utterly remarkable book.

Critic Reviews

"Hopkins' gift with free verse reaches new heights in this portrait of splintered identical twins.... Kaeleigh and Raeanne maintain distinct voices throughout as they wrestle with psychic damage and an astonishing, devastating realization. Sharp and stunning, with a brilliant final page." ( Kirkus Reviews )
"Hopkins' verse is not only lean and sinuous, it also demonstrates a mastery of technique." ( Publishers Weekly)

Wanted to love it, but it was just obvious for me

I heard good things, wanted a great twist to end a great story! But unfortunately you knew pretty much from the start what was going on and it just wasn't as original as I had hoped.

Breathtakingly amazing

I am every bit pleased with this book, disturbing but artful and written and narrated beautifully. I got so emotionally invested in this book, definitely not for the faint of heart or for anyone under 18. But it provides a good inside looks for people dealing with these situations
