Publisher's Summary

Love, loyalty, lies...twin sisterhood has a price.

How long could you keep a life-changing secret from your twin?

Victoria is the adventurous twin - fearless, friendly, and popular - so why is bookish and agreeable Thora suddenly distant, keeping secrets from her sister for the first time in their lives?

Written by two sisters, incorporating real childhood and adolescent memories with fictional details, American Girls looks at the best and worst of growing up girls in the 1980s Midwest and the devastating power secrets can wield over the closest of relationships.

Hearbreaking High School

Excellently written. It was honestly hard to listen to because of the raw emotions it evoked and how well it was able to sweep me back to high school. It details the good, bad, and awful experiences of high school twins and their differences. Well done.

Beauty & Pain

This story was about two sisters with the timeline from when they were teenagers and then flipping forward to when they were 40. I can’t totally relate to how sisters are because I never had one myself until I was married but it seems to me that Victoria was views as the “bad” sister and she never did anything right in her mother’s eyes and Thora was always the perfect one who always made the best choices. After it is discovered that Thora has become pregnant which was an unspoken secret that Thora was hiding from everybody because of the awful thing that happened to her, their mother turns it back on to being Victoria’s fault once again. I wanted to slap that mother in the face. The story had its sweet and beautiful parts as well; it made me sad that it took them both so long to address the pain that was between them but I think had a beautiful outcome.

Wow

This stoey is amazing!! It shows the struggles of having sister. They go through alot in this story. Sisters usually tell eachother everything.. So when one keeps a secret , it is never a good thing. It definitely makes you think about sibling relationships.

American Girls

I truly enjoy books by Cecily Wolfe. They are always based on everyday situations. This is about twins that couldn’t be more different. It has flashback moments when they were in high school. The situations they experienced that shaped their present lives. If you enjoy books that don’t always end in HEA then I recommend this book. This could be based on something that everyone has experienced personally or knew someone that did. Very real scenarios.

Great story of what life is like as a young girl. Twin girls learn hard ships of life. Narrator was awesome!
