This is one of the best books i've ever read.

Its about two girls, identical twins, who have very different personalities. Its told from both of their perspectives and written entirely in poems. They lead a hard life after a life altering car accident. Their mother, now cold and heartless is a politician, and is rarely home. Their father is a drunk and addicted to oxycodon.

Kaeleigh is unsure of herself, and unable to love because she is being molested by her. Ian, her best friend and only good stable thing in her life is completely in love with her. She loves old people and gets attached to a woman who shares her own tragedies. Kaeleigh releases her hardships by cutting, and eating.

Raeanne is a hard ass, promiscuous, drug seeking rebel who loves her father very much and resents her mother. She is seen as the stronger twin, because Kaeleigh isn't strong enough to say no to people. She spends her time with Mick and Ty, who supply her with free weed, as long as she supplies them with herself.

I would recommend this to anyone who needs a good, hard core story. There's a twist in the end that will make your heart drop.

Ellen Hopkins is the New York Times best seller author of Crank, Impulse, Burned, and Glass. The lives in Nevada with her husband and son. She wrote and published her first novel when she was nine.
