Well, I finished reading this book today. This book wasn’t what I thought it was going to be but I don’t mean that to sound like a bad thing. It’s just that there are times that a book doesn’t turn out to be like you expected when you first picked it up. The story follows Jo…..she’s just a typical 15 year. The only difference is she’s keeping a secret. She has a twin sister that no one knows about and no one believes her either, even when she does try to tell them. So, she just continues to look after this twin sister that no one knows about and an adventure ensues. I don’t want to share more because I don’t want to ruin it for anyone else reading it.
Synopsis: Jo lives in the same Appalachian town where her mother disappeared fifteen years ago. Everyone knows what happened to Jo’s mom. She was wild, and bad things happen to girls like that.
Now people are starting to talk about Jo. She’s barely passing her classes and falls asleep at her desk every day. She’s following in her mom’s footsteps.
Jo does have a secret. It’s not what people think, though. Not a boy or a drug habit. Jo has a twin sister.
Jo’s sister is not like most people. She lives in the woods–catches rabbits with her bare hands and eats them raw. Night after night, Jo slips out of her bedroom window and meets her sister in the trees. And together they run, fearlessly.
The thing is, no one’s ever seen Jo’s sister. So when her twin attacks a boy from town, everyone assumes that it was Jo. Which means Jo has to decide–does she tell the world about her sister, or does she run?
