Clara and Hailey are at a crossroads. Clara wants to stay close to home, avoid all attention, and study the night sky. Hailey wants to travel the world, learn from great artists, and dance with mysterious boys.
As high school graduation approaches, each twin must untangle her dreams from her sister’s, and figure out what it means to be her own person.
I am under the impression that this book is just high school drama. Typical high school, drama. Throw in the twins and you get high school drama told by two people that are EXACTLY the same. There are NO different perspectives at all.
Clara and Hailey seem to have fairly normal lives. Typical girls, really. Going to school, having crushes on boys and chatting with their friends. As I mentioned before, the POVs are no different. Throughout the novel you are reminded that they are different, but you can’t see it. I felt as though I had to remind myself who’s chapter I’m on, there wasn’t much difference in persona of Clara and Hailey.
What saddens me the most is that the only true emotion about the twins is from their mother. Who is obsessed with reminding the girls that they are different and it’s basically impossible for them to be separated.
In the end, I didn’t learn anything about the conjoined twins. I didn’t get the emotions of the characters. It was like they weren’t even there. Like they didn’t exist. Just narrators for high school drama.
Let me conclude by saying that I had high hopes for this novel. But I don’t know how to feel about it.
