    Nelson, Jandy, author.

    Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways, until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else who is an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years of their story belong to Noah. The later years belong to Jude. What the twins fail to realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they would have a chance to remake their world.
