Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A dark, edgy, voice-driven literary debut novel about twin sisters that explores body image and queerness as well as toxic diet culture and the power of sisterhood, love, and lifelong friendships.--Publisher's description.
Rose and Lily Winters are twins. They feel each other's emotions, taste what the other is feeling, but their connection can be as destructive as it is supportive. When Rose stops eating, Lily starts consuming everything Rose won't or can't. Now Rose is about to mark her one-year anniversary in a rehabilitation facility for anorexics. Lily, a kindergarten teacher, dates abusive men, including a student's married father, in search of the complicated companionship she lost when she became separated from Rose. When Lily joins a cult diet group, Rose must find a way to rescue her-- and perhaps, save herself. -- adapted from jacket

    In this debut novel from Kiwi author Clarke, readers meet identical twins Lily and Rose. Throughout childhood, the pair shared emotions and sensations: Lily could taste Rose's excitement, could smell her rage, could feel her sister's every worry in her own heart. In late adolescence, Rose developed a serious eating disorder, which required in-patient treatment, and was sequestered indefinitely to a rehabilitation facility. While Rose was withering away in their teenage years, Lily was gaining weight rapidly.The physical differences between the formerly co-dependent twins became striking, but they grew apart emotionally as well. The twins' family was consumed by Rose's struggle with anorexia, but didn't give much thought to Lily's rapid weight gain. It's not until the present, when Lily is dating an abusive married man, that Rose must assume the role of care-taking twin. While grappling with the deaths of friends she met in treatment, Rose has to swoop in and solve her twin's less visible but equally lethal problem. The novel is a breathtaking and sobering account of eating disorder treatment and mortality. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
