Book Summary:

Two identical twins grow up in a small southern black community and run away at age sixteen. Years later, one sister lives with her daughter in the town she tried to escape, and another sister passes for white with a white husband who doesn't know her past. The book explores some of the multiple reasons and realms in which people sometimes feel pulled to live as something other than their origins.
