One and the Same: My Life as an Identical Twin and What I’ve Learned About Everyone’s Struggle to Be Singular  by Abigail Pogrebin

This is a really great book for people wanting to know more about twins. It could be for twins or people who are trying to understand the relationship of twins that are in their life whether parent or friend. I think this is a great coming of age book for any twin and I am glad that I read this as a Junior because it is very important in thinking about colleges and futures either separate or together. In this book, Abigail, the author who is also a twin, goes in depth about all the research and studies about twin relationships all while analyzing her own relationship with her own twin. She also has tons of interviews of different experiences of different pairs of twins. She does not tell you what to think about the information but just says it plain, how it is. Through the interviews and personal stories she is able to make it lively and story like, not just another non-fiction book. It could be slow at times but overall I really liked it because I like what it made me realize about my relationship with my twin and also made separating for college maybe not so bad? This is a definite read for anyone interested in twins.
