Identical by Ellen Hopkins
Or in a better place?
Kaeleigh and Raeanne are identical down to the dimple. As daughters of a district-court judge father and a politician mother, they are an all-American family -- on the surface. Behind the facade each sister has her own dark secret, and that's where their differences begin.
For Kaeleigh, she's the misplaced focus of Daddy's love, intended for a mother whose presence on the campaign trail means absence at home. All that Raeanne sees is Daddy playing a game of favorites -- and she is losing. If she has to lose, she will do it on her own terms, so she chooses drugs, alcohol, and sex.
Secrets like the ones the twins are harboring are not meant to be kept -- from each other or anyone else. Pretty soon it's obvious that neither sister can handle it alone, and one sister must step up to save the other, but the question is -- who?
My Review - so I'd read reviews from others before about a twist at the end so I was kind of expecting the twist! haha. I liked this book pretty good and kind of semi-guessed the twist before it happened. I didn't like it more then her Crank Series. I couldn't imagine going through what Kaeleigh went through. I loved the ending of this book and Ian in the book was pretty cool too. Overall it was a pretty good book and I gave it 3 stars.
