This book was a really touching read.
Told by the perspectives of both sisters. Hephzibah speaks before her death of the details before the incident and Rebecca after Hephzibah's death.

Hephzi and Rebecca have always been homeschooled by their mother but the book begins when they have beged their strict, abusive father to let them go to college.
Hephzi becomes involved with a new group of friends and soon starts sneaking out the house to meet them.
Rebecca however struggles with her disfigured face to fit in with anyone and keeps to herself.

Both sisters are beautiful characters and everyone should be able to relate to one or the other. Hephzi is branching out after never being able to before and begins to push her sister away as she doesn't want her new friends to associate her with the disfigured girl.
Rebecca is very much alone and keeps to herself and often feels the wrath of her father.
Both girls are very naive and awkward with people having never spent much time with anyone apart from their parents. Their parents are horrible god fearing people who often abuse the twins . Lots of horrible situations arrive which i won't divulge as I don't want to give away any of the twists.
I will tell you that the secrets that emerge are gasp worthy!

This book is definitely worth your time reading!
