Obviously this one deals with some heavy, controversial issues. The biggest one being abuse, specifically incest. Kaeleigh's father has a very inappropriate relationship with her, and her identical twin, Raeanne, is jealous. It's a totally unfathomable concept to grasp, but Raeanne genuinely feels like their father doesn't love her as much. It's all very disturbing to read, especially since we get all but one of the abuse scenes from her POV instead of Kaeligh's.
Raeanne deals with her feelings of jealousy and unlovableness by engaging in some very self-destructive behavior. She sleeps around, does various drugs, drinks a lot, and purges. All trying to fill a void where she feels their father should be. As for Kaeleigh, she just tries to be normal, but it's hard. She's nearly the polar opposite to her twin despite having the same DNA. She doesn't have sex (except the unwanted times with their father), she doesn't do drugs or drink (except the occasional glass of wine with her mother), and she binge eats without the purging. It's so sad to watch these girls do such different things in response to the same situation but for very different reasons.
I really don't want to give anything away, but this book was super amazing. As soon as I was about to take a break from it, a (metaphorical) bomb went off and I had to keep reading. This one was intense and every word was loaded with emotion. At some points I literally felt sick, but I couldn't stop reading. I highly recommend this one to readers who enjoy less happy books that are full of intensity and honesty.
