#Review of Gemini by @sonyamukherjee & #Giveaway via @simonteen

GeminiIn a powerful and daring debut novel, Sonya Mukherjee shares the story of sisters Clara and Hailey, conjoined twins who are learning what it means to be truly extraordinary.

Seventeen-year-old conjoined twins Clara and Hailey have lived in the same small town their entire lives—no one stares at them anymore. But there are cracks in their quiet existence, and they’re slowly becoming more apparent. Clara and Hailey are at a crossroads. Clara wants to stay close to home, avoid all attention, and study the night sky. Hailey wants to travel the world, learn from great artists, and dance with mysterious boys. As high school graduation approaches, each twin must untangle her dreams from her sister’s, and figure out what it means to be her own person.

Told in alternating perspectives, this unconventional coming-of-age tale shows how dreams can break your heart—but the love between sisters can mend it.

I grew up in California’s Gold Country, where I spent a lot of time sitting in trees, reading books and writing stories in my head. Now I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I spend a lot of time sitting in coffee shops, reading books and writing stories on my laptop. I like to play board games with my husband and kids, watch the kids' soccer games, and scare them with my terrible dancing. I don't love every book that I read, but I do love all the ones I've rated on Goodreads.

I'm not really into contemporary books but I'm slowly getting into them!! And this book has helped that! The love the sisters have for each other was beautiful and I loved that they have different dreams. I was hoping throughout the book that they got to fulfill their dreams and more. It was one of the greatest contemporary reads I've read!!

PS No dreams thank heavens -- I have scary dreams!!

Um...not like big dreams or anything. But I have a better job now that can actually support me and my daughter so I call that a win. Much better than shelter-hopping and stuff...

I got to marry the man of my dreams! Does that count? :)

Sort of. Sometimes when something's gone really bad and I dream that somehow it will all be fixed, it is. Like magic :)
