Will be published in April 2011.
Melody and Harmony are identical twins, separated at birth, who have just met each other. They come from two completely different walks of life: Harmony grew up in Goodside, a religious community with little contact with the outside world; while Melody has a conception contract with a wealthy couple, and is just waiting to hear who the other half of the contract will go to. How will meeting each other change their plans for life?
I found this book to be a prime example of why I don’t usually read YA novels. To me, it was just like seeing and listening to a young teenage girl’s conversation in a mall. Completely ridulous and annoying. I just wanted to shake the girls. But maybe that’s just my age showing, I am almost 30.
The premise of why people become infertile at age eighteen was never explained, or even touched on. I guess that matches the selfish outlook of the teenaged characters, but it made for a confusing and unrealistic reading experience.
Overall, I just didn’t like it. I was going to stop after the first chapter or so, but it wasn’t that long, and I wanted to see if it got any better as it progressed. It didn’t. In fact, I don’t even think it ended, it just kind of stopped. I take it there is obviously a sequel coming? It will not be something I’ll be reading.
