Publisher Description

Another brilliant, original and moving novel from the author of The Time Traveler’s Wife.

Julia and Valentina Poole are normal American teenagers — normal, at least, for identical “mirror” twins who have no interest in college or jobs or possibly anything outside their cozy suburban home. But everything changes when they receive notice that an aunt whom they didn’t know existed has died and left them her amazing flat in a building by Highgate Cemetery in London. They feel that at last their own lives can begin … but they have no idea that they’ve been summoned into a tangle of fraying lives, from the OCD-suffering crossword setter who lives above them to their aunt’s mysterious and elusive lover who lives below them, and even to their aunt herself, who never got over her estrangement from the mother of the girls — her own twin — and who can’t even seem to quite leave her flat….

Amazing!

I absolutely loved reading Her Fearful Symmetry because it was one of those books that had such detail and interesting wording that it was hard to put the book down. The one thing I didn't like about this book was the part near the ending that had tondo with the Ghost girl stealing the body and getting pregnant, I found this really stupid and hated the girl for what she had done. Sorry if I spoiled anything for certain readers who happened to be reading this story.
