A blazingly passionate memoir of identity and love: when a charismatic and troubled young woman dies tragically, her identical twin must struggle to survive. Beautifully written, mesmerizingly rich and true, Parravani's account of being left, one half of a whole, and of her ultimately triumphant struggle is informative, heart-wrenching, and unforgettably beautiful.
