Twins by Marcy Dermansky


“A startlingly beautiful love story about two very unlikely identical twins. It’s a joy—no, a thrill—to read. . . . This is easily the most detailed, disturbing, and loveable oddball romance you’ll ever read. Dermansky is a writer through and through.”—Frederick Barthelme, author of Elroy Nights

Twins is the extraordinary story of two blond, beautiful, and tormented sisters trying to survive adolescence—and each other. Obsessively defiant, Sue is four minutes younger than Chloe, the seemingly perfect twin she both idolizes and resents. All Chloe wants is to please her sister, and maybe find a friend of her own. Neglected by their wealthy parents and bewildered by a complex social universe they don’t fit into, the sisters are left to fend for themselves.

Over the course of five years Sue and Chloe overcome breakups, unhappy vacations, unicycle lessons, eating disorders, pill abuse, and their first explorations of love and sex. Navigating this hilarious and heartbreaking world, they must over come apathy and despair to find themselves—and return to each other.
