From holding hands in the womb to holding each other's hair back when they puked, twins Laura and Lizzie grew up only having each other. They couldn't count on their practically feral mom, absent dad, or even the boys they liked. They're polar opposites--Laura's reserved while Lizzie's reckless--but their shared mischievous giggles and dreams for the future kept them going. One day, Laura finds a familiar book of poems in Lizzie's apartment and is dragged through their turbulent past. Together, the sisters relive their complicated history in an effort to make sense of the present. Framed by the beauty of a well-loved poem, this story of ferocious sisterhood, addiction, and the aftermath of trauma will leave howls echoing in your ears.
