I wonder if the author had any say in the "two peas in a pod" cover. So are the two characters, the misfits or prime numbers, two peas in a pod? I think not. They were actually very different from each other, more dissimilar than similar, and ultimately not compatible - compatability wasn't possible. The circumstances of their life experiences because of their personalities are somewhat comparable, but peas in a pod? No.

Alas, I'm jaded toward the publishing industry.

The premise of story itself was good and unique and I loved the ending which was both appropriate and believable. It's heartening to know they survive and appear to have as stable adult lives as could be hoped for. Overall I liked it, but over time I fear it will become forgettable, in the category of beach reads.
