Something you should know about me before reading this post.... I love books- almost every book- especially fiction and most especially good fiction.

What do I mean by good fiction? A plot that really grabs you and brings you into the lives of the characters. A book that makes you laugh and cry. Something that seems like it could/should be real.

I found all this and more in the book The Girls by Lori Lansens. I don't want to spoil the story for any of you- so I'll just say it's about 2 conjoined sisters- and who they are- not their handicap. At points you totally forget that they are conjoined twins.

I got to the end of the book and turned the pages for more. It was that good. One twin is a writer and one is a history buff and they're as different as sisters can be.

Go read it already!!!!

It's a great book! It made me think!

Humm sounds like I would get in trouble if I started reading that instead of working on my prospectus. Oh well might have to check it out anyways!
