“Fred, you next," the plump woman said.

Bisco Hatori
“We're always contradicting ourselves.
We want people to tell us apart....
...yet we don't want them to be able to.
We want people to get to know us...
...but we also want them to keep their distance.
We've always longed for someone to accept us...
But we never believed there'd be anyone who would accept our twisted ways.
That's why we'll stay locked up tight...
...in our own little private world...
...and throw away the key, so that no one can ever hurt us.”
Bisco Hatori, Ouran High School Host Club, Vol. 9

Ellen Hopkins
Mirror, Mirror

When I look into a
it is her face I see.
Her right is my left, double
moles, dimple and all.
My right is her left,

We are exact
Kaeleigh and me.
Mirror image identical
twins. One egg, one sperm
one zygote, divided,
sharing one complete
set of genetic markers.

On the outside we are

the same. But not
inside. I think
she is the egg, so
much like our mother
it makes me want to scream.

That makes me the sperm
I guess. I take completely
after our father.
All Daddy, that's me.

Good, bad. Left, right.
Kaeleigh and Raeanne.
One egg, one sperm.
One being, split in two.

And how many
Ellen Hopkins, Identical

create a perfect imitation
of something yet to be
defined? In this way,
can a reflection be altered?”

We'll erase those who want to use us for our family prestige...

...and erase those girls who try to apply their patronizing psychology theories on us...

...and those stupid adults who only judge us by our outward appearances....

We'll erase them all from our consciousness.

“So go, girl. We should have been one person all along, not two.”
Dorothy Baker, Cassandra at the Wedding

Gillian Flynn
“My twin, Go. I've said this phrase so many times, it has become a reassuring mantra instead of actual words: Mytwingo. We were born in the '70s, back when twins were rare, a bit magical: cousins of the unicorn, siblings of the elves. We even have a dash of twin telepathy. Go is truly the one person in the entire world I am totally myself with. I don't feel the need to explain my actions to her. I don't clarify, I don't doubt, I don't worry. I don't tell her everything, not anymore, but I tell her more than anyone else, by far. I tell her as much as I can. We spent nine months back to back, covering each other. It became a lifelong habit. It never mattered to me that she was a girl, strange for a deeply self-conscious kid. What can I say? She was always just cool.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

“She glanced rapidly between them, blinking and hoping her double vision would go away. They were glaring at each other. Would they fight? If she saw her own double she probably be tempted to punch it once or twice. Especially today. For being so stupid.”

Genevieve Valentine
“When are you going to get a fella?" Lily asks Rose after a year or two of dancing. "I have one who wants to take me kissing, but I think I should wait for you to have one."
Rose flushes. "I don't think I'll ever have a fella."
"Why not?" Lily bristles. "We're plenty pretty."
"I don't like the look of them," Rose says.
Lily purses her lips at the dance floor, appraising.
After a moment long, Rose says, "Any of them."
Lily looks at her a long time, as Rose tries not to hyperventilate.
Then Lily shrugs and says, "Well, then it's you who should have learned to lead, isn't it?" and when Rose clasps Lily's hand, she clasps it back.
It's the closest they've ever been.”
Genevieve Valentine, The Girls at the Kingfisher Club

Steven Magee
“Florida and hurricanes are like twins!”
Steven Magee

“Although the memoir can be heartbreakingly sad, it builds to a stirring moment of understanding when the author fully recognized her brother’s determination in the face of what was later diagnosed as bipolar disorder. Overall, this sharply conceived book shines a light on the challenges of twinship and offers a deeply personal account of a family coping with mental illness.

A richly detailed and affecting remembrance.”
Kirkus Reviews
