I did enjoy reading this but have only given three stars, although this doesn't reflect the quality of the writing. The story is slow building and tension increases throughout, which is great, but what I expected doesn't happen and I did feel rather disappointed in the ending. Without spoiling it for others I can't say more on that. I preferred the unconventional twin Violet, to the conventional one who was the narrator, Daisy. Not sure if this is what the writer intended, but I did find Daisy irritating as she was clingy, unsupportive and selfish. The theme of ESP is unusual and fascinating but could have been more developed. In a way, it's almost up to the reader to make their own judgement on whether the twins were actually psychic or not. Or did they have strong intuition and vivid imaginations? I didn't find the plot convincing but the writing is skilful and I would read more by Curtis Sittenfeld.
