review 1: Two young women realizing in their 20's that they are twins, but they were suppose to be born singles. They kinda fall in love with each other and they try to catch the time they haven't been together. It's a sentimental story and it's really nice from the two of them to have put their story into words so we can follow a scenario worth Hollywood. It is a very nice story, but it could have stayed between them and it would have been as nice as it already is. I didn't really appreciate reading the book because it's too much personal in my opinion and it's easy to see that it's not written by a 'real' writer. Level of language is basic and the way the story is being told match this level.Thanks Penguin Canada for the giveawayFirst reader winnerYannick Serres (your favorite fre... morench quebecer reviewer!)
review 2: I received Separated @ Birth as part of a Goodreads giveaway.Samantha Futerman and Anais Bordier, adopted from South Korea as infants, grew up on opposite sides of the Atlantic, with Sam just outside of New York City and Anais in France. One day in 2012, however, a friend sent Anais, then a twentysomething fashion design student in London a link to a YouTube video featuring Sam, a budding actress living in L.A.--and Anais' mirror image. Told in alternating chapters from each woman's point of view, this is the story of their reunion, their search for answers about their shared past, and the relationship that they and their families have now forged.A very sweet, heartwarming read. Both young women grew up happy, healthy, and into successful and talented adults, and their personalities shine through in their respective chapters. It's a great tale, one of those "one in a million" shots that everyone loves to hear about, and I'm thrilled that they remain close despite their physical distance. Warmed this old pessimist's heart on a chilly autumn morning. less

I cried reading the epilogue. Moved by their families' capacities for love. Beautiful story.
Such a twist of fate or luck that Anais and Samantha are reunited. Just read it and enjoy.
Great story, predictably bad writing and overly long.
This is interesting because it's a true story.
I received an ARC from Goodreads Firstreads!
