I couldn't put this one down once I started reading the tragic story of these twin sisters. It's jaw dropping, shocking, head shaking and just down right weird! It's been weeks since I read this & yet I still find myself pausing to think about one or another "incidents" that the twins created during their bizarre lives. At times it's even amusing without meaning to be. The girls family just seem to go along with whatever happens & don't seem worried at all. Anyone in their right mind can see these two need a serious reality check and it should have been long before things got out of hand!
Lots of photos included!
