Sixteen-year-old Emma Healy has never felt that she fit in with the rest of her family, so when she discovers that she had a twin brother who died shortly after they were born, she takes off on an impulsive road trip to try to discover who she really is.

Baker
& Taylor

Uncovering the family secret that she had a twin who died two days after he was born, Emma Healy begins to understand why she has always felt that something was missing in her life and so takes a road trip to visit his grave with her neighbor, Peter, who turns out to have more in common with her than she could have ever imagined.

Simon and Schuster
Emma Healy has grown used to being the only ordinary one in her rather extraordinary family. But when she finds a birth certificate for a twin brother she never knew she had, along with a death certificate dated just two days later, she realizes why she never felt quite whole. She sets off on a trip to visit her brother’s grave. Peter Finnegan, her neighbor, comes along for the ride. Emma thinks they can’t possibly have anything in common, but with each passing mile, they find themselves learning more and more about themselves and each other.

This is the first book by this author that I've read. I thought it was alright, nothing special. It was a bit too slow for my taste but I did enjoy what I read. It was good for some light, summer reading.

After reading The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, I scooped this book up. It was a bit slow, but the concept of family dynamics and soul searching was well done. I, like Emma, grew up with much older siblings, and you really don't know all the family stories, and you do sometimes feel alone. I really like the section of the book where Emma and her sister, Annie, reconnect.

I expected a lot more from the author, because the first book i read from her was The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and it was amazing; absolutely loved it. And this one was sort of a disappointment. It was slow, and I really didn't like Emma's character that much because she was really bratty most of the time.
