Anna is just a normal girl, hoping to get through Grade Eleven relatively drama-free at her new school. She wants to make friends, go to prom, and when she has her eyes set on quirky, flowery girl, she wants love to be a part of the equation, too. She insists it will be hard to do anything, though: with her conjoined twin brother, Pavel, constantly by her side, she can't imagine ever being considered normal. But when something happens to make Anna doubt her entire life, she discovers something very special about what love is, as well as what it means to be normal.
