The Opposite Of Me

Read June 2010 * * * * *

"Twenty-nine-year-old Lindsey Rose has, for as long as she can remember, lived in the shadow of her ravishingly beautiful fraternal twin sister, Alex. Determined to get noticed, Lindsey is finally on the cusp of being named VP creative director of an elite New York advertising agency, after years of eighty-plus-hour weeks, migraines, and profound loneliness. But during the course of one devastating night, Lindsey’s carefully constructed life implodes. Humiliated, she flees the glitter of Manhattan and retreats to the time warp of her parents’ Maryland home. As her sister plans her lavish wedding to her Prince Charming, Lindsey struggles to maintain her identity as the smart, responsible twin while she furtively tries to piece her career back together. But things get more complicated when a long-held family secret is unleashed that forces both sisters to reconsider who they are and who they are meant to be."

Brianna`s Review: CUTE! Twins, who are clearly not identical, have two completely different personalities and life dreams. As they get older they drift apart, and barely really talk anymore. Then something happens to bring Lindsey home, and she is stuck spending more time with her sister. I thought this book was adorable, funny, and realistic. I loved all the characters, including mom and dad (they were funny). And of course, what you think would be the main part of this story is the sisters, but there is sooo much more. As far as I know, this was her only novel, but if I see another, I will definatley be reading it. This book makes you want to call up your sister, just because.
