Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West s Home for Wayward Children.
This is the story of what happened first
Jacqueline was her mother s perfect daughter polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it s because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline.
Jillian was her father s perfect daughter adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tom-boy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you've got.
They were five when they learned that grown-ups can t be trusted.
They were twelve when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretense of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices.
