Booklist Review!

Here is the Booklist review! Yipee!! 


Rasmussen, Rebecca (Author) Apr 2011. 304 p. Crown, hardcover, $24.00. (9780307717962).
Born to two star-crossed lovers turned emotionally estranged parents in rural Wisconsin, Twiss and Milly grow up in poverty, continually trying to forge a bridge between their mother and father. Things turn south the summer their father gets into a car accident that cripples his burgeoning professional golf career. Their cousin Bett comes to live with them for a few months and brings with her a storm of knowledge about love, truth or consequences, and something even more devious, which threatens to cripple the family. As Twiss and Milly reach late adolescence, they must decipher the world of relationships on their own, causing Twiss’ wild-woman tendencies to grow stronger and pushing Milly toward Asa, the doctor’s son who mows their lawn and seems to share her affections. This novel is told from the perspective of the sisters as girls and old ladies still living in the same house, looking back on their young lives. A charming yet sober tale of two girls struggling to grow up amid family turmoil and poverty, this is a welcome debut from Rasmussen.

What a fantastic review! Your book sounds wonderful and I love that the main characters are twins! I was born a twin but fraternal, not identical, and the connection between twins, especially identical, is fascinating.

Congratulations!
