summary ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Ellen Hopkins

Perfect on the outside but behind the Normal Rockwell facades each holds its secrets Dark untellable Practically unbelievable IDENTICAL Kaeleigh and Raeanne are 16 year old identical twins the daughters of a district court judge father and politician mother running for US Congress Everything on the surface seems fine but underneath run very deep and damaging secrets What really happened when the girls were 7 years. DNF 65% I legit only picked up this book bc the plot twist was said to be MIND BOGGLING and after searching through spoilers I found that yes it is a pretty good plot twist but I could PHYHSICALY not put up with this book any longer The Writing I came looking for free verse poetry but the writing was bland and v v tiring when I wasn’t puking my guys out bc of how messed up the book was I was falling asleep also everything is so drawn out like plz edit through man The Plot what the heck was the whole POINT of this book its like it had EVERY mentalphysical illnessproblem in the world all at once excessive drinking drugs cutting bulimia cheating fricken MESSED UP AND ILLEGAL relationships incest serious daddy issues etc etc its like messed up afrench fries and like whats THE REASON is this to show like this happens to people bc I don’t think that’s v realistic idk its weird and I cant relate and I just hated it the plot twist isn’t worth it id rather not be scarred for the rest of my lifeTheres I wanted to say but I have no energy to speak of this book any longer I just want to forget this ever happened The book is just depressing and I don’t know why its necessary or what benefit it brings and WHY was it written in free verse like THERES NO NEED for it to be considered poetry theres NOTHING poetic about it anywaysI don’t think im much of a fan1 star
