Laurie told me that as soon as she started reading this book, her dreams went off the hizzee. Same for me. The first night I was thrust into a future time, an epic battle against robotic cops in a moving trawler mall city battle tank with my friends. But the book is about conjoined twins, and identity. If you read it, many new words will join your vocabulary. I love the ending, as well. It's very weird. Turns your brain into guacamole.
Jacob and Toni go to Melbourne to visit their 20 year old daughter but when they arrive at her apartment she has left town with her recently widowed employer/lover, leaving them no message. They wait and we learn about the lives that got them to this place and time and the people they have become.
