On the even of their thirteenth birthday, identical twins Chloe and Sue agree to get matching tattoos to prove their bond is stronger than DNA. So begins 'Twins', Marcy Dermansky's comic and disturbingly honest debut novel, the extraordinary story of two blonde, beautiful, and tormented twin sisters trying to survive adolescence -- and each other.
Told in alternating voices, 'Twins' introduces two new unforgettable heroines on the verge. The obsessively defiant Sue, four minutes younger, resents and idolizes her seemingly perfect twin, Chloe. All Chloe wants, however, is to please her sister and -- only if Sue will allow it -- find a friend of her own. Neglected by their wealthy parents and cynical older brother, burdened by a loving dog they can't properly care for, and bewildered by a complex social universe they somehow don't fit into, Chloe and Sue are left to fend for themselves.
