This had an intriguing premise. It also looked like it might be reminiscent of Savvy. That’s why I picked it up at ALA. Plus it had Brett Helquist artwork on the cover and I’m a pretty big fan of him. The story was engaging and I was interesting in seeing how the twins would handle themselves under pressure. Though I wasn’t sure I entirely felt the plot was as serious as it was portrayed. I liked the story and the struggle between the twins to find peace. It was a fun read and I liked the dramatic conclusion at the end, but I’m not sure I would go out of my way to recommend it.
