The Phantom Twin

We rated this book:


A sad, reflective story about the separation of two Siamese twins in a sideshow. After years of being conjoined and together, the Peabody sisters are approached by a doctor who claims he can separate them through surgery. After the failed procedure and the death of her twin, Isabel is forced to live, for the first time, on her own.

This graphic novel does a nice job of balancing the speech with the personal thoughts of Isabel. Through these, we are able to identify the key traits that make Isabel Isabel and make Jane Jane. As we follow Isabel on her journey to find a way to live a life of her own we see her struggle through the loss of her figurative family of the traveling sideshow and her lack of trust in close friends who only want the best for her. This graphic novel will pull at your heartstrings as Isabel embarks on her journey. As a result, I recommended this book to anyone and everyone. This book can connect with all audiences because of its simplicity. To conclude, this was a great story, but it will leave you wanting more.
