I enjoyed this book a lot - it was well written. I felt for her sister and I felt for the author what a tragedy. I wished the sister had been stronger at overcoming the horror that had happened to her but hey, life is rough and things take its toll worse on some than others. The only reason I backed down from five stars is because when I read a book to be a true five star it has to be memorable. This book ,while I was reading it, I was absolutely enthralled, but only a week later I can't remember hardly any parts of it - except a few of the really bad parts. I do highly recommend it. The way she writes is beautiful. There is one part that I remember that somewhat bothered me - at the funeral "one" of her fathers Mike, came to pay his respects and she kind of freaks on him - that bothered me a bit - I don't care who it is - unless that person did out and out harm to the person to pay respects at a funeral is not the time to be kicking them out!! I was a bit taken a back by that but her sister did just die and maybe the emotions were so high. I had a friend whose twin sister was raped and murdered (at age 13) and she wouldn't celebrate a birthday for about 15 years after that so - everyone grieves differently. You know what I am remembering this book I change it IS a five....

This was a fascinating, beautifully written account of the connectedness of identical twins.  I couldn't put it down!  Christa Parravani is the real deal and I will look for more of her titles in the future.

Easy read. I'm around the same age andalwaysfanisised as a child what it would be like to have a sister, this is the extreme version of that fantasy played out. In this version , it feels a bit like the genie that grants the wish has a dark and twisted sense of humor. "oh yeah. Just remember, u asked for it". Except it's a memoir...Comming from no advantages early on, to seriously, this is what life is gonna be like now? Into some sort of perspective, it's a powerful story. Check out author interview on NPR.

I just finished this book and about half way threw I wanted a refund. The author is so poor me...Me....ME, that I ended up not feeling any empathy for either sister.
