Abstract:
Now nearing thirty, Rose and Ruby are soon to be history's oldest conjoined twins, and Rose decides it is time to write the story of her short but extraordinary life. As Ruby watches Rose write her memoirs, she decides she wants to tell her part too; for though they are as close as two people can be, their lives and voices are wonderfully, powerfully distinct. Every experience of growing up comes rushing through in their telling-- their first loves, their painful choices, losses, and triumphs--but every experience is doubled, sometimes joyfully and sometimes painfully.
