Enter to Win a Copy of ‘Brother, Brother’ from Macmillan | Giveaway

Imagine being 17 and just losing your grandmother, the woman who raised you. As if a day like that isn’t devastating and confusing enough, imagine on the same day finding out that everything you know about your family is a complete lie. Oh, and you discover that you have a twin brother! This is the story behind Brother, Brother (Gr 7 Up).

82113brother Enter to Win a Copy of Brother, Brother from Macmillan | GiveawayWith grace and insight, Clay Carmichael tells the story of twin brothers who only recently discovered the existence of the other. On a secluded North Carolina island, they each struggle to find their own identity, which is hidden behind years of family secrets and resentment. Part coming-of-age and part love story, this southern YA literary novel is reminiscent of John Corey Whaley’s award-winning Where Things Come Back (S & S, 2011), and certainly won’t disappoint.

SLJ says, “This prince-and-pauper tale will have readers poised to learn the truth with Brother, rooting for him. This uplifting underdog story will draw thoughtful readers with its well-wrought characters and themes of family secrets, romance, and virtue.”
