With her singular voiceMoreNalo Hopkinson--winner of the John W. Campbell Award, the Sunburst Award, and the World Fantasy award (among others), and lauded as one of our most inventive and brilliant writers (New York Post)--returns with a new work.

With her singular voice and characteristic sharp insight, she explores the relationship between two sisters in this richly textured and deeply moving novel . . .SISTER MINEWed had to be cut free of our mothers womb. Shed never have been able to push the two-headed sport that was me and Abby out the usual way. Abby and I were fused, you see. Conjoined twins. Abbys head, torso, and left arm protruded from my chest.

But heres the real kicker- Abby had the magic, I didnt. Far as the Family was concerned, Abby was one of them, though cursed, as I was, with the tragic flaw of mortality.Now adults, Makeda and Abby still share their childhood home. The surgery to separate the two girls gave Abby a permanent limp, but left Makeda with what feels like an even worse deformity: no mojo. The daughters of a celestial demigod and a human woman, Makeda and Abby were raised by their magical father, the god of growing things--a highly unusual childhood that made them extremely close.

Ever since Abbys magical talent began to develop, though, in the form of an unearthly singing voice, the sisters have become increasingly distant.Today, Makeda has decided its high time to move out and make her own life among the other nonmagical, claypicken humans--after all, shes one of them. In Cheerful Rest, a run-down warehouse space, Makeda finds exactly what shes been looking for: an opportunity to live apart from Abby and begin building her own independent life.

Theres even a resident band, led by the charismatic (and attractive) building superintendent.But when her father goes missing, Makeda will have to discover her own talent--and reconcile with Abby--if shes to have a hope of saving him .
