I am not actually giving this a rating since I only skimmed it. I did not realize it was written in poems, like a diary. I tried. I got the nuts and bolts of the story-but gave up. I don't like this style of writing. Read full review

i read this book because i love ellen hopkins and the format of her writting and this book had a twist at the end that even i didn't see coming. Its a perfect example how two people can look the same but they can act totally different. Read full review

This book was amazing I finished this book in 1 day because I couldn't put the book down. The only parts I didn't like were the part about the dad. He needed to get reported or something.

This is a book about a pair of twins that follows their lives as a disconnected and chaotic family and as young struggling individuals. The book switches between the point of view of one twin and the other, allowing you to fully see inside both sisters’ minds and relate. The events of the book grow more and more towards chaos until the twist-ending that I never saw coming.

Being a faithful reader of Ellen Hopkins, I must say that this is my absolute favorite. The mirror effect throughout the whole book in the free verse style of her poems really make the reader think about the way each of the girls feel at a certain point. The sex, drugs, and self-destruction may not be for everyone, but if you begin this book, you should definately stick it out to the end to encounter the amazing plot-twist. (Spoiler, sure, but it is a great twist!!!)

I was simple mesmorized and astonished at something that i had no idea could capture my heart so beautifully. I LOVED IT,EVER BIT. The ending just gives you that last bit that you need to go out and want to read more of Ellen Hopkins. BEAUTIFUL AND TRULY A CLASSIC.

User Review  - MarnieSkinner - Goodreads
