    Book Description:Identical twins Nikki and Maya have been on the same page for ""everything""-friends, school, boys and starting off their adult lives at a historically African-American college. But as their neighborhood goes from rough-and-tumble to up-and-coming, suddenly filled with pretty coffee shops and boutiques, Nikki is thrilled while Maya feels like their home is slipping away. Suddenly, the sisters who had always shared everything must confront their dissenting feelings on the importance of their ethnic and cultural identities and, in the process, learn to separate themselves from the long shadow of their identity as twins.

    In her inspired YA debut, Renee Watson explores the experience of young African-American women navigating the traditions and expectations of their culture.
