Henry Holt and Co., 2/2013
Paravani relates the story of her twin sister, Cara, and the entwining relationship between them that overpowered their individuality. As children they were moved often and found it hard to be part of a community and found their solace in one another. Christa writes, "We knew who we were; We were best friends. We were enemies. We were all we had." They go to college together. They both marry young, buying each other 'wedding rings' to symbolize their inclusion in each other's marriage. Then everything changes when Cara is brutally attacked and raped. Christa struggles to help her sister, but in the end it's not enough. A haunting tale of a survivor trying to find a reason to be.
