This book comes out on Tuesday September 29th. Thanks to Holland Saltsman of The Novel Neighbor bookstore, I got to read an advanced reader copy.
Giselle and Isabelle Boyer are identical twins. So identical that even their parents have trouble telling them apart. Giselle is into drawing, and Isabelle is into music, she plays the flute like an angel. Giselle and Isabelle are on their way to one of Isabelle's concert's, stuck in traffic, and they will most likely be late. Then a freak accident happens, and Giselle's life is thrown into a blender. She wakes up in a hospital, with no clue how she got there, or where Isabelle is. Trapped inside herself, she is unable to communicate with anyone. Should she just give up and let go?
This book was so good! I am so happy I got the chance to read it before it came out, otherwise I probably would have never read it! This story was so well written and so sad, I almost cried. (Well, actually, I did cry, but that's not important.) This book had no inappropriate parts in it. I would recommend it to 7th grade and up. You should really try it out in your free time!
