Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Sasha Stone knows her place -- first-chair clarinet, top of her class, and at the side of her oxford-wearing boyfriend. She’s worked her entire life to ensure that her path to Oberlin Conservatory as a star musician is perfectly paved. But suddenly there’s a fork in the road, in the shape of Isaac Harver. Her body shifts toward him when he walks by, her skin misses his touch even though she’s never known it, and she relishes the smell of him -- smoke, beer, and trouble -- all the things she’s avoided to get where she is. Even worse, every time he’s near Sasha, her heart stops, literally. Why does he know her so well -- too well -- and she doesn't know him at all? Sasha discovers that her by-the-book life began by ending another’s: the twin sister she absorbed in the womb. But that doesn't explain the gaps of missing time in her practice schedule or the memories she has of things she certainly never did with Isaac. As Sasha loses her much-cherished control, her life -- and heart -- become more entangled with Isaac. Armed with the knowledge that her heart might not be hers alone, Sasha must decide what she’s willing to do -- and who she’s willing to hurt to take it back.

    McGinnis' (The Female of the Species, 2016) latest novel introduces protagonist Sasha Stone, a relentlessly driven high-school senior who discovers a dangerous secret about herself. As first chair clarinet and top of her class, Sasha has always been an overachiever. As she starts to feel an inexplicable connection to Isaac, the school's resident bad boy, she begins to question her identity. When she loses track of huge chunks of time, Sasha takes matters into her own hands and discovers an ultrasound of herself and her twin sister, Shanna. Ever since Sasha absorbed her sister in utero, Shanna has always been there, lurking in the darkness of Sasha's mind. Communicating through exchanged notes, Sasha and Shanna wrestle over control of Sasha's body and the boy they are both falling for. Though not the strongest of McGinnis' signature psychological thrillers, the novel's most compelling feature is the cryptic, surrealist style with which Shanna writes. Rich imagery and a ruthless protagonist propel the novel forward to its shocking, ominous conclusion. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
