The Girls by Lori Lansens

Rose and Ruby Darlen are conjoined twins attached at the head. Given up at birth by a teenage mother, the girls are raised by a nurse from the local hospital, Aunt Lovey and her husband, Uncle Stash. In the style of a dual autobiographer, Rose and Ruby narrate together to guide the reader through their unusual childhood experiences and unique adult lives.

Sweet, uplifting, memorable and heartbreaking, the reader is guaranteed to feel a multitude of emotions from the first chapter through the end of the book. It's about more than the plot of their shared lives. This novel is about the relationships of twin sisters, family, and friends.

This story will stay with you long after you've finished the last page. Be prepared. You won't be ready to let these girls go.
