I was hooked on the concept of this book from page 1 - the autobiographies of a set of fictional conjoined twins. Lansens does a wonderful job of character development throughout, telling the life stories of conjoined twins from each twin's point of view. She does an excellent job of bringing out the separate personality of each twin.

This is the story of the lives of two girls who are twins. They were born conjoined at the head. I found this to be a quick read and a good "page turner".

What a fascinating book! Although it is painful to read at times, it is so full of hope and profound thoughts I just couldn't put it downIt was heart-rending, heart-warming, wonderful, painful, compelling⦠all these things and more. I loved this book, and ripped through it at top speed, which is unusual for me. I loved it and felt that I knew these twins. Each had their own personalities and body shape, hopes and dreams. I fell in love with Uncle Stash and Aunt Lovey, who raised them with love and hope. I am so very sad that I am finished reading this book, however the characters will remain in my heart for a long time to come. This was most likely my best read for the year, and in a year of excellent books that is quite saying something!
