The Identicals

Dallas’ Pick: The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand

I started 2018 wanting to read more of a variety of books since I mostly stick to YA and Children’s. I picked this book up in playaway form because it looked interesting and reminded me of the parent trap movie. This book was nothing like the Parent Trap, although it did reference it a few times. I enjoyed this book so much. Twin sisters, who live completely different lives, have not seen one another in fourteen years cross paths at their father’s memorial service. The reader learns that the past between the two is nothing less than tragic. Split up when they were very young to separate parents in a divorce, they grew apart based on the parent they were raised by. One sister, raised by their mother, was very well off and looked down on anyone in jeans and a t-shirt. It only makes sense that twin sister, raised by their dad, in a tomboy always found in jeans and a t-shirt. There is a wide range of underline humor along with romance, tragedy, and joy. Overall this was a great book and I am looking forward to trying more


of her books and adult books in general.
