Isabel and Jane are the Extraordinary Peabody Sisters, conjoined twins in a traveling carnival freak show—until an ambitious surgeon tries to separate them and fails, causing Jane’s death.
Isabel has lost an arm and a leg but gained a ghostly companion: Her dead twin is now her phantom limb. Haunted, altered, and alone for the first time, can Isabel build a new life that’s truly her own?
Graphic novels are always iffy for me because I feel like I need more, but I really like this one! Especially the carnival setting!
The drawings were also beautiful and easy to follow along with the sometimes-heartbreaking story of these conjoined twins.
I also loved getting to see the carnival acts as well as the emotion between sisters, etc. There was prejudice involved from some of the people that would see the acts but who really got the last laugh because those customers were out money? Very cute and touching graphic novel!
