The Mirror Sisters

From the legendary New York Times bestselling author of The Flowers in the Attic and My Sweet Audrina series comes the first book in a new series featuring identical twin sisters made to act, look, and feel truly identical by their perfectionist mother.

Alike in every way...with one dark exception.

As identical twins, their mother insists that everything about them be identical: their clothes, their toys, their friends...the number of letters in their names, Haylee Blossom Fitzgerald and Kaylee Blossom Fitzgerald. If one gets a hug, the other must, too. If one gets punished, the other must be, too.

Homeschooled at an early age, when the girls attend a real high school they find little ways to highlight the differences between them. But when Haylee runs headfirst into the dating scene, both sisters are thrust into a world their mother never prepared them for—causing one twin to pursue the ultimate independence. The one difference between the two girls may spell the difference between life...and a fate worse than death.

Written with the taboo-breaking, gothic atmosphere that V.C. Andrews is loved for, The Mirror Sisters is the latest in her long line of spellbinding novels about mysterious families and tormented love.

My Review

First off I have to say that Haylee and Kaylee's mother kind of reminded me of Mommy Dearest. This is no wonder that Haylee turned out to be the evil bitch twin. Thus the reason I liked Kaylee better as she was kind. Yet, I hope in the next book she comes out a fighter and does not let Haylee keep running all over her. There was the word gothic thrown in about the author's writing style, which yes the author has been known for but I would not describe this book as being gothic. If anything it was more PG-13. The most devious act that Haylee committed was horrible but not shocking. Except for Haylee's recent one that has Kaylee in way over her head. I am interested to see how this all plays out in the next book.
