RT Rating

Written in skillful verse, this is a dark tale of abuse and mental illness. Hopkins handles these taboo issues with a direct and sensitive approach, which creates an enthralling story.

Raeanne and Kaeleigh
are identical twins in what seems
to be a perfect family. But after a
terrible accident, their politician
mother runs away onto the campaign trail, even though Kaeleigh is desperate for her love.

Raeanne desperately wants her father's affection, but when Kaeleigh becomes its object she turns to sex
and drugs. Can the twins confront
their demons, and what will they find
if they do? (Margaret K. McElderry, Sep.,
