"She could mirror her sister, mimic her voice, inhabit her body in her own. She felt special, knowing that she could pretend to be Stella but Stella could never be her."

The Vanishing Half by Britt Bennett

The second book, also chosen because of the cover (it’s not as striking as the cover on the other book, but stood out amongst a very limited selection to choose from in the shop; I’d planned on just one book for the holiday, but got through the first one sooner than expected). I doubt if someone had described this book for me I would have gone for it, but in the end I’m glad the cover made me.
