Pearl and Stasha are twins. Identical, inseparable, they even dream about the same things. At the age of twelve, the war forcibly drags them into adulthood: both are taken to Auschwitz along with their mother and grandfather. There, under the watch of Josef Mengele, they experience both privileges and horrors unknown to other prisoners, and they find themselves changed, stripped of the personalities they once shared. The eventual liberation of Auschwitz puts Stasha on the difficult road back home, and on a mission that seems impossible: to find her sister. A beautiful novel, this story is about the most hateful of crimes.

Pearl y Stasha son gemelas. Idénticas, inseparables, incluso pueden sentir y soñar lo mismo. A sus doce años, la guerra las arrastra a la vida adulta: ambas son llevadas a Auschwitz, junto con su madre y su abuelo. Ahí, bajo la mirada de Josef Mengele, experimentan privilegios y horrores desconocidos para otros prisioneros. Privadas de la personalidad que compartían, sus identidades son alteradas por la culpa y el dolor. Un invierno Pearl desaparece durante un concierto en el campo de concentración. Más tarde, la liberación de Auschwitz pone a Stasha en el difícil camino de vuelta a casa, y en una misión que se antoja imposible: reencontrar a su hermana. Es una hermosa novela sobre el más odioso de los crímenes.
