In a powerful and daring debut novel, Sonya Mukherjee shares the story of sisters Clara and Hailey, conjoined twins who are learning what it means to be truly extraordinary.

Seventeen-year-old conjoined twins, Clara and Hailey, have lived in the same small town their entire lives—no one stares at them anymore. But there are cracks in their quiet existence and they’re slowing becoming more apparent. 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.

Told in alternating perspectives, this unconventional coming-of-age tale shows how dreams can break your heart—but the love between sisters can mend it.

YES YES & YES.

Obviously, I'm in love with the concept. Like, how can you not be? It reminds me so of Sarah Crossan's One, which I still need to snatch. But, really, what a strong, empowering concept. The blurb is crazy addicting and I already love the fierce individuality we're seeing in Clara and Hailey.

And that cover???


I think the GIF says the rest. ;)
