The list author says: "Sometimes it's not genre that matters - it's that story-tellers voice in your ear telling you such a story about such compelling people/places/times that you are drawn in, captivated and swept away. These are the books I have a hard time "coming out of" when I'm done - I still live with these characters, in these places for days after. And these are the ones I read over and over and over....."
"Disturbing ~ I find something new every time I read it. It's a good twin/bad twin with a twist - still just not sure exactly what the twist is. Do not rely on the movie - nowhere near as good as this book. And Thomas Tryon is a great 'with a twist' writer."
"I loved, loved, loved The Girls...really. I cried when the book was over and I had to leave them. And it's written from the perspective of each of 'the girls' (conjoined twins Rose and Ruby) so you get two distinct story-tellers. Amazing, touching, heartbreakingly wonderful."
