Her Fearful Symmetry - Audrey Niffenegger Here’s a question: What would you do if you had an overbearing, bossy twin sister whom you needed to get away from??a. Bear with it – she’s family after all.b. Elope with your middle-aged boyfriend.c. Get your parents involved and have a long family chat.d. Willingly die, and then try to resurrect yourself without her knowledge.??The meek twin in this story... she goes for option d.......This book was full of really absurd people doing really absurd things.
