Justin Sirois

Starting in the year 2018, every person born has an identical twin. What was dubbed the mysterious Set Mutation is now, twenty years later, a worldwide phenomenon. Penny and Sam, two 16 year old twins, have never understood why they are different from one another. While all the other sets of twins grow to be more alike, in every way, Penny and Sam struggle to fit in—they aren’t naturally the same person. Soon they will find out how deadly their secret really is.

Amazon Reviews:

Part teen drama, part dystopian sci-fi road trip/thriller, part psychological examination of identity in a world where all new births are twins.
I loved this story. Justin Sirius has an artful, poetic way with words that lifts his prose above the average speculative fiction tale, on a par with Maria Doria Russell. His ideas are fresh, even as he plays with a few 'corporate controlled future' tropes, and he skilfully weaves in teen angst passages with his Tom Clancy-like bad guys taking names and kicking ass. It's a vision of the future equally as haunting as 'Children of Men,' and he borrows some elements of that movie (sorry, no spoilers). But it works and he makes it his own, in what looks to be the start of an exciting series.
This was a Kindle Scout selection and it's not hard to see why. Look forward to more from this author.

My first taste of Justin Sirois was his So Say The Waiters trilogy. I devoured those books, I consumed them with a veracity. I believe that the reason I enjoyed them so much, and so quickly, was because they were a finished work. While Two Girls is good, I'm a bit sad that I can't continue onto the next installment. That's a bummer. I really love the world that's been constructed her, a future where a mutation causes a BOOM of twin births, and there hasn't been a single child born in 20 years-ish. The main Set, Sam and Penny, are wonderfully developed, and their growth (whether apart, or closer) is well executed. This hit a special place for me. My two best friends growing up were twins, and I loved to pick out their similarities, as well as their differences. If you liked So Say The Waiters, pick this up. If you liked The Hunger Games, go ahead and pick this up. If you like smart writing that's "on the level", and doesn't speak down to you, pick this up and read it. Justin's writing is great. You could enjoy reading it and then have a PBR with it.

The whole way through, you feel like your on the edge of something bigger. Justin plays with the tension -- in the twinning, the bureaucracies of the quasi-government, the hints of a much different world given in glimpses. As the plot unfolds and the characters develop, so does the world they are moving through (or surviving?). The build up and reminded me a lot of the intrigue and suspense of something like Children of Men in a very good way. Can't wait to see where it goes next. Justin couldn't have predicted how different a world we'd be living in back when he was first writing this story, but I can't help but feel all the ways it plugs into today.
