Their mother wanted everything to be the same including the identical sisters. Same toys, friends even the number of letters in their names. If it wasn’t the same, it wasn’t right. Haylee Blossom Fitzgerald and Kaylee Blossom Fitzgerald were homeschooled since early age but when their mother decides to let them go into public school, the differences the sisters had to hide and now being brought to light. 

These differences, however, can literally cause life or death.

*Short Review*

I didn’t like this book. Let’s be blunt about it. There were great qualities to this book but overall I didn’t like it.

Firstly, I didn’t like Kaylee, who is the narrator of this book. Her tone was lifeless and downright annoying and whinny. She had no backbone and I can see why the choose that, to show the differences in the sisters, but I was not enjoying it. It was too much to deal with and that is why I didn’t like the book so much.

I did love the obsessive nature of the mother. It could have been more dark and considering V.C. Andrews history, I thought it would have been. So I was a bit let down that it wasn’t. There was predictability in the book. My surprised didn’t come until I read the preview of the second book. I shouldn’t have been surprised but I was and it did make me want to read the second book.

I didn’t like the pace of the novel, it was too slow for me. I appreciated the details but it was getting too much to deal with about half way through the book.

Overall, not my favorite. I do hope that book two will be much much better.
