Madeleine and Rogan are first cousins, best friends, twinned souls, each other's first love. Even within their large, disorderly family--all descendants of a famous actress--their intensity and passion for theater sets them apart. It makes them a little dangerous. When they are cast in their school's production of Twelfth Night, they are forced to face their separate talents and futures, and their future together. This masterful short novel, winner of the World Fantasy Award, is magic on paper.
