At a recent Readers Advisory Training, reknown book reviewer Nancy Pearl mentioned that she was currently reading The Girls by Lori Lansens and found it to be a well written interesting book written from the perspective of conjoined twin girls. Based on her recommendation, I checked this book out of the library and was engrossed in this fictional account of conjoined twins from page one. The Girls are Rose and Ruby Darlen, craniopagus conjoined twins, connected inseparably, facing the world side by side. The book chronicles their life journey; a story of love between sisters. The narrative switches between sisters; each chapter giving the reader a personal glimpse into the spirit of each girl. The writing is rich in detail and provides you with an intimate look into the struggles and triumphs of the "girls".
