NPR Summary

Holland and Niles Perry are identical thirteen-year-old twins. They are close, close enough, almost, to read each other's thoughts, but they couldn't be more different. Holland is bold and mischievous, a bad influence, while Niles is kind and eager to please, the sort of boy who makes parents proud. As Holland's pranks become increasingly sinister, Niles finds he can no longer make excuses for his brother's actions.
