Publisher's Summary

I have never looked into my sister's eyes. I have never bathed alone. I have never stood in the grass at night and raised my arms to a beguiling moon. I've never used an aeroplane bathroom. Or worn a hat. Or been kissed like that....

So many things I've never done, but oh, how I've been loved. And, if such things were to be, I'd live a thousand times as me, to be loved so exponentially' In twenty-nine years, Rose Darlen has never spent a moment apart from her twin sister, Ruby. She has never gone for a solitary walk or had a private conversation. Yet, in all that time, she has never once looked into Ruby's eyes. Joined at the head, "The Girls" (as they are known in their small town) attempt to lead a normal life, but can't help being extraordinary.

Now almost thirty, Rose and Ruby are on the verge of becoming the oldest living craniopagus twins in history, but they are remarkable for a lot more than their unusual sisterly bond.

    "Surprising and heartwarming"
    Where does The Girls rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the most enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that it handled such an unusual and potentially uncomfortable subject without any mawkishness or awkwardness. And the characters were all believable, and vivid.


    What about Sarah Mennell’s performance did you like?

    She read it with a lot of feeling and involvement and made the characters feel different and with their own personality in the voices.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Hmm - I'm not that imaginative! But something that put over the fact that even those of us who may seem so "different" really aren't.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a bit unsure about reading it at first, thought it might be a little weird or written about this subject for the wrong reasons. But it was a lovely, well written and believable story, with funny bits, happy bits and heartbreaking bits. I was sorry to finish it and have no more to read about "the girls".
