Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld is a book about identical twins, Kate and Vi, who share a special sense. . . somewhat of a psychic power. Although Kate does her best to hide it, to fit in, to be “normal,” Vi isn’t ashamed of her ability, which causes tension between the sisters.
When Vi receives a premonition that indicates danger, their lives and families are disrupted.
Throughout the book, even though Kate and Vi argue, they are there for each other as sisters. And that’s something I can relate to. Although my sister and I are 4 and a half years apart, we weren’t close until I left for college, and (dare I say it??) she totally missed me. Now we’re really close, and I consider my sister to be a best friend.
While this book won’t go on my favorites list, I enjoyed it and would recommend the book to others.
As a side note. . . is it just me or am I the only one who had no idea that CURTIS, the author, is a GIRL???
Thank you to Jennifer @ The Relentless Reader for a copy of this book!
Let’s take a poll: Only child? Sisters? Brothers?
