10 synopsis

My twin sister was the only person in the world I thought I’d known inside and out. Apparently, I was wrong.

Twin sisters share a unique bond, one that can’t be broken by miles, time, or even death. Hannah and Hope Morton are no exception. When Hope takes her own life, Hannah loses a sister and a best friend, a catastrophe she isn’t sure she’ll survive herself.
With her family in ruins, Hannah is slowly disappearing, drowning in a sea of misery. Even her wild, energetic best friend can’t pull her out of her grief. Desperate to help Hannah, her brother comes home from college, bringing his best friend Julian along, the first boy to break Hannah’s heart. None of their efforts are enough to pull Hannah off her self destructive path, though. Julian is the only one who can get through to her, working his way into her frozen soul with cocky remarks and genuine love that warms her from the inside out.
As Hannah works to find answers, she continues to uncover new secrets and people that reveal a side of Hope she had never shared with her twin. Alone now, Hannah must make a decision of her own: move on and start a new life with the people she has left, or let the weight of her grief drag her down with her sister.


Review

I started this one and it didn’t take me long to get through it. I couldn’t put it down I needed to know why just as much as Hannah did. I was going just about as crazy as she was.

This is written as a journal from one sister to another. I actually didn’t have a problem with reading it. There were a few parts that I felt like did stray a little but then that was when she was mad at Hope and she wasn’t talking to her. So I had to remind myself that when she would put ‘you’ she ment Hope, not me. 🙂

My heart broke for Hannah, for her mom, dad and brother. I just wanted to hug her whole family. There is so much that needs to be figured out and I wanted to jump in and just search every inch of the room myself. As the time goes by and there are little things that are brought out that confused me as much as it did Hannah. I couldn’t figure out what was going on. I felt like things were getting back on track for this poor girl and then something comes up and she has to deal with something else…to try to figure out what happened, who her sister really was.

Her being a twin must be hard on everyone around them. The death of her sister, yet everyone looks at her and sees Hope, but knows it isn’t her.

Okay so this is something that I can relate to on a personal level. We had a friend who is an identical twin and when he passed away and they had a funeral for him on base where we lived and his brother showed up. I couldn’t stop crying because it was like he was there but he wasn’t. It was just so hard. So when she has to explain that she isn’t her sister a couple of times, I can only imagine what she must be feeling.

There is a lot of hurt and healing. The relationship between her and her brothers best friend helps. That of course is the one guy that broke her heart so she wants to hate him, for that reason alone. He does help to try and distract her from everything that is going on. She tries, and tries to move on and forward but she has some set backs along the way. We get to see how her and her family learn to heal from the heartache of loss.

It at times was a very emotional read and I enjoyed every bit of it.

About Momma's Books

Found my new love for books when a good friend sent me the Sookie books and I was stuck in a paranormal state and only wanted that then I came across Shayla Black and read her Wicked Lovers Series which got me into the contemporary romance with a "twist" and since then I have just been a reading fanatic! And LOVE every minute of my escape from reality. View all posts by Momma's Books
