Publisher Comments:

Another brilliant, original and moving novel from the author of The Time Travelers Wife.

Julia and Valentina Poole are normal American teenagers — normal, at least, for identical “mirror” twins who have no interest in college or jobs or possibly anything outside their cozy suburban home. But everything changes when they receive notice that an aunt whom they didnt know existed has died and left them her amazing flat in a building by Highgate Cemetery in London. They feel that at last their own lives can begin … but they have no idea that theyve been summoned into a tangle of fraying lives, from the OCD-suffering crossword setter who lives above them to their aunts mysterious and elusive lover who lives below them, and even to their aunt herself, who never got over her estrangement from the mother of the girls — her own twin — and who cant even seem to quite leave her flat….
