Esau have I hated . . .


Sara Louise Bradshaw is sick and tired of her beautiful twin Caroline. Ever since they were born, Caroline has been the pretty one, the talented one, the better sister. Even now, Caroline seems to take everything: Louise's friends, their parents' love, her dreams for the future.

For once in her life, Louise wants to be the special one. But in order to do that, she must first figure out who she is . . . and find a way to make a place for herself outside her sister's shadow.

From Our Editors

Being a twin isn't always as much fun as it's cracked up to be. With wry humour, Sara Louise recalls her turbulent adolescence on Rass Island -- and her intense jealousy of her own twin sister. Strong characterization and memorable external and internal action mark this superbly crafted novel of a quest for self-knowledge.
