, 376 pages, Delacorte Press (Random House), 2020, $19

Jo has a savage twin sister, Lee, who lives in the woods. She visits/runs with her sister at night. No one believes Lee is real. Jo had to stop seeing her sister nightly because she is failing school and being branded as a rebel. Lee gets angry/scared for Jo and attacks one of Jo's friends who is kissing Jo. The town people think Jo did the attacking. She has to decide which world is more livable, society of a small town or the ruffing it in the woods with Lee. 

It sounded like such a good story, but I was disappointed. There was a lot of mature content that added no value to the story. I was frustrated beyond measure with the reasoning of the main characters. There are better ways to spend your time than reading this book.
