Untwine

September 4th, 2019 - Posted in Library News -

by Edwidge Danticat, 303 pages, Grades 7 and up.

Giselle and Isabelle are very close friends AND identical twins. In fact, they’re so close that when the family gets in a car accident the living twin can’t quite understand which one she is. She is severely injured and barely conscience; nurses and doctors come and go taking care of her as she watches from somewhere seemingly far away. Her parents have also been injured in the accident, will they know which twin sits before them? And, in the end of the day, can one twin survive without the other? 

If you like stories about interesting family circumstances you might also enjoy: Waiting for Normal, by Leslie Connor, or Guitar Boy, by M.J. Auch. Or, if you enjoy sad stories you might also like reading: Boy in the Black Coat, by Jason Reynolds, or My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece, by Annabel Pitcher.
