I was very excited to have received Louis & Louise by Julie Cohen and due to be released on 24 January 2019 by Orion Publishers

In the moment of their birth, they are born as the same person in two different lives. They are separated only by the sex announced by the doctor and a final “e’. 

Louis and Louise are in many ways the same. They have the same parents, the same best friends, the same school, the same hometown in Maine that they dream of escaping, and the same ambition to become a writer. 

Until their late teens, their lives run along near-identical tracks. But their father owns the mill that provides most of their town’s employment, and the father of their best friend is a mill worker. When the workers go on strike, battle lines are drawn up in the town that they and their friends try to ignore. On the night of their high school graduation, however, both experience a life-changing, traumatic event that will cause both to leave their homes and send their lives in very different directions. 

A full review of this book will be available on my blog in January 2019.
