I recently had the chance to read Head Trip by Jack Eadon. I haven't gotten to do too many fiction reviews for this blog, so I enjoyed the chance to read something that was more "just for fun" than had a purpose.
This book was very intriguing. The premise of the book is that two boys are born twins, although they were conceived a month apart (a real phenomenon called "superfetation"). The author paints an interesting picture of life in the womb with an "intruder" (the second-conceived twin) and also draws occasional parallels to Biblical twins Jacob and Esau. The conflict and emotions the book explores are raw and intense, and although the plot jumps a lot - covering conception to high school - it's easy to see how the snapshots provided of their youth developed the young men at the end.
The author will be giving a copy of a book to one of my readers. To enter, leave a comment with an example of sibling rivalry, from your life or your kids' lives, by February 10th.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of the book to facilitate this review.
