(Simon & Schuster, July 26, 2016)
Things you can’t do when you’re permanently attached to your twin sister’s back:
• Rock climb
• Be ignored by strangers
Kiss a boy (Stupid thing that my sister believes. Are you really letting her write this? – Hailey)
Clara and Hailey love each other, and they’re comfortable in their conjoined bodies. It’s the stares and whispers they could do without.
Hailey’s a pink-haired artist who longs to explore the world and question every limitation. Clara’s an aspiring scientist who would rather stay home, avoid strangers, and study the night sky.
Yet Clara has secret, impossible dreams, like seeing Earth from space, and falling in love with a guy who could actually love her back.
Then telescope-loving Max comes to town, and Clara starts to question her definition of “impossible.”
Soon, both Clara and Hailey are forced to ask: Is it possible to pursue their dreams together? Or should they consider the risky, life-threatening surgery to separate them? And what does it really mean for each sister to be herself?
