Description

"Heartfelt and emotional." --Rebecca Phillips, author of "Faking Perfect"
"I can't ever be the blazing star that Iris was. I'm still just a cold, dark satellite orbiting a star that went super nova."
Andria's twin sister, Iris, had adoring friends, a cool boyfriend, a wicked car, and a shelf full of soccer trophies. She had everything, in fact--including a drug problem. Six months after Iris's death, Andria is trying to keep her grades, her friends, and her family from falling apart. But stargazing and books aren't enough to ward off her guilt that she--the freak with the scary illness and all-black wardrobe--is still here when Iris isn't. And then there's Alex Hammond. The boy Andria blames for Iris's death. The boy she's unwittingly started swapping lines of poetry and secrets with, even as she tries to keep hating him.
Heartwrenching, smart, and bold, "Dreaming of Antigone "is a story about the jagged pieces that lie beneath the surface of the most seemingly perfect life and how they can fit together to make something wholly unexpected.
