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)

    "I finished it!"

    On the fence with this one. For the most part I wasn't enjoying the book, took me awhile to get through it. I did however like the ending so I'm glad I finished it.

    "very exciting and suspensful"

    A story that keeps you on the edge. You hang on every sentence and dont want to turn it off because you are addicted to it. I loved it.

    Story
    "Still smh...."

    Ok so I had high hopes for this book. I'm disappointed. The narrator did well at telling the story but the story itself is not at all what I thought. I literally said wtf out load when we got to the big reveal of what's going on in the story. I was ready to call it quits but thought it should get better. OMG! Wrong again. I wasted money on this book because I didn't have a credit for the month yet☹️

    "A very heavy story"

    As the reader I knew was was happening early on. That was a very heavy message

    "I couldn't take another minute"

    It is hard for me to believe anyone with more than a 10th grade education would find this book tolerable. After forty-five minutes I had to quit.

    Story
    "Not what I expected but still good."

    The overall story was good but the subject matter was also a little hard at time. It does have possible triggers for a variety of situations, but most of the author's stories seem to be that way. The ending gave me hope but this is very hard when you think about the fact there are children who do have to deal with this. There was a definite twist that I didn't see coming, and I'm usually decent at at least getting in the ballpark of what twist in stories are.

    I was so so on the narrator. She did a good job at using different tones and inflections for the twins, but there was something about the way she spoke that I didn't particularly care for but it was not enough to make me stop listening.

    Not sure if this is a spoiler but I wanted to give a trigger warning to anyone who has dealt with sexual abuse, substance abuse, self harm or bulimia/eating disorders. If you listen to this story be prepared and maybe have someone you can talk with if the subjects in this story cause you any distress.

    "Great book!!!"

    This book was very well written. I love this author. I would recommend this book to anyone! What I loved most about this book was how it ended. It most definitely had an unexpected twist! The narrator did an amazing job as well. This is probably my favorite Ellen Hopkins book so far and I have listened to quiet a few of her books recently. Ready to start a new one!

    "You never truly know someone"

    I absolutely love this book and the author Ellen Hopkins. Her stories are real. And based off something that's happened or she has seen. This book in particular describes secrets in the home, death,drugs,sex and finding yourself and allowing yourself to be helped.
