Summary
Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey grew up believing that they were identical triplets. They are not and no one can ever know the truth about them. To protect their secret, they move to a new city and begin to attend school as one person, Elizabeth Best. This situation works fine until Lizzie meets Sean. Sean is the first person to make Lizzie see herself as an individual and this leads Lizzie to start asking questions about the way they live. Her curiosity uncovers secrets that threaten all three of the girls, and the choices they make will forever change their family.
Critique
This is "light science fiction." The sisters’ big secret is straight science fiction, but the real charm of the book is the romance, the relationships between the three girls, and the universal theme of identity.
