The Girls

I finished reading The Girls by Lori Lansens. I received it as a freebie but it turned out to be a pretty good book anyway. It's about craniopagus twins, Rose and Ruby Darlen, and their life growing up in Ontario. Rose is diagnosed with an aneurysm, and she starts writing an autobiography. Lansens does an excellent job of narrating the girls' stories, with such good details. Soon I kept wondering if this was even a fiction novel (it is) because it's so beautifully written.
