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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Very Good Book"

    I thought this was a very good book. It was a little confusing at times trying to figure out who was "speaking" Kayleigh or the other sister but that gets explained at the end and it all makes better sense.

    "Crank/Glass a better choice by Ellen Hopkins"

    I was disappointed in this book; there was some graphic contect, including an insestuest relationship between father and daughter. The ending made up for the content, because it was good and unexpected, however, I still prefer Crank and Glass as the best books done by Ellen Hopkins.
