Description

Imagine looking in the mirror and seeing someone else's face. Imagine what it would be like if that face shared every birthday, every secret, and every memory with you.

England Murphy lost her twin sister Elise in a car accident just weeks before their high school graduation. Elise was her best friend, and without her she felt broken and alone. It was almost more than her heart could endure. 

The only way to mend a broken soul is to find its true mate, but England wasn't searching for love. She was searching for absolution. 

But love found her first. 

(Recommended for ages 18+ due to language and sexual content)

Dedication

This book is dedicated to Micalea, because she is my soul sister and I don’t know what I’d do without her. #FriendsForever

It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

-William Shakespeare

PROLOGUE

Eighteen days, eleven hours, and twenty-seven minutes is how long I spent in the hospital after the accident. I had two surgeries on my arm, three broken ribs, and forty-eight stitches in my head, lost all the hearing in my right ear, and some of the hearing in my left, but I was alive. By some miracle, I’d survived the accident, was what they’d said. It wasn’t a miracle. It was a travesty. They waited until my sister was buried six foot into the ground before telling me that she didn’t make it. I missed her funeral. I missed saying goodbye one last time, and I missed watching them lower her into the ground. Why they didn’t tell me, I’ll never know. What I did know is that I felt like a shell of myself. I felt like half of my heart was taken with my sister when she left this world, and the other half that lay deep in my chest was shattered beyond repair.

Every time I looked in the mirror I saw her face. Her haunting green eyes paralyzed me. Though I knew it wasn’t her, it was still petrifying. It terrified me because I was an exact replica of her. Identical twins we were, right down to our toes. In our minds we were different, but on the outside you couldn’t tell us apart. The mirror was my worst enemy now, and I could barely face that reflection.

How could I go on living my life, when every part of my soul felt empty? It may sound crazy to you, but I should have been the one to die in that crash.

1

It had been exactly five months since my sister Elise had died. My parents could barely stand the sight of me. I supposed I reminded them of her when they looked at me. They weren’t mean, but they’d never look me in the face. They were having a difficult time dealing with her loss, but they acted like they were the only ones hurting, like I hadn’t just lost my best friend and my sister. My parents failed to realize how much I was hurting too. So many nights I’d lie in bed and ask why she was the one that was taken from this earth. She was good and pure. She was innocent.
