Identical, de Ellen Hopkins:

Do twins begin in the womb?
Or in a better place?

Kaeleigh and Raeanne are identical down to the dimple. As daughters of a district-court judge father and a politician mother, they are an all-American family — on the surface. Behind the facade each sister has her own dark secret, and that’s where their differences begin.

For Kaeleigh, she’s the misplaced focus of Daddy’s love, intended for a mother whose presence on the campaign trail means absence at home. All that Raeanne sees is Daddy playing a game of favorites — and she is losing. If she has to lose, she will do it on her own terms, so she chooses drugs, alcohol, and sex.

Secrets like the ones the twins are harboring are not meant to be kept — from each other or anyone else. Pretty soon it’s obvious that neither sister can handle it alone, and one sister must step up to save the other, but the question is — who?

 

Mi opinión: Bueno este libro me lo regalaron porque se me antojó, hasta hubo que pedirlo por Internet. Es un poco complicado de leer, lo hice en inglés así que te da la opción de aprender mucho vocabulario. La estructura es muy diferente a la de los otros libros, el texto se divide en párrafos y de cada párrafo hay una palabra que está alejada de este. Estas palabras de todos los párrafos de cada página forman a su vez una frase. El tema es complicado y duro. Tiene un final poco esperado.

 

Dear John

 

Dear John de Nicholas Sparks

Dear John de Nicholas Sparks

Dear John, de Nicholas Sparks:

An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life–until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who has captured his heart. But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else. “Dear John,” the letter read…and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love—and face the hardest decision of his life.

 

Mi opinión: Bueno lo he puesto en inglés porque así me lo leí. Este libro es uno de mis favoritos, me hizo llorar como una enana. Como la mayoría de las veces, merece leerse el libro más que ver la película.
