IdenticalBook - 2008 | First edition.
Do twins begin in the womb?
Or in a better place?
Kaeleigh and Raeanne are identical down to the dimple. As daughters of a district-court judge father and a politician mother, they are an all-American family -- on the surface. Behind the facade each sister has her own dark secret, and that's where their differences begin.
For Kaeleigh, she's the misplaced focus of Daddy's love, intended for a mother whose presence on the campaign trail means absence at home. All that Raeanne sees is Daddy playing a game of favorites -- and she is losing. If she has to lose, she will do it on her own terms, so she chooses drugs, alcohol, and sex.
Secrets like the ones the twins are harboring are not meant to be kept -- from each other or anyone else. Pretty soon it's obvious that neither sister can handle it alone, and one sister must step up to save the other, but the question is -- who?

I read this book many years ago and loved it. I plan on re-reading it in the hopes that it will have the same impact on me now as it did then.
Things are not always what they seem. Especially when there are secrets involved.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Identical twins Kaeleigh and Raeanne could not be more different. While on the outside their family appears rich and happy, an alcoholic father and distant mother force the girls to cope with their "screwed up" home life on top of the regular drama of teenage life. They turn to different coping mechanisms as they struggle through their pain, and begin to dig up a horrible past that was not meant to be found.
Tradgedy strikes a family with twin daughters. The dad is an alcholic pervert and the mother is running for a position in politics and from the pain that her family has suffered. Many dark secrets from the family's past weigh heavy and it takes the love of a young man to give strength and stimulation to begin the awareness and healing process.
