(From the publisher):
An unashamedly happy tale of student sisters and starcross'd lovers.
Juno and Juliet Taylor are twin sisters heading off together to the University of County Galway. It's the Irish girls' first time away from home, and they're looking forward to exploring much more than the library, learning much more than what the books will teach them.
Juliet, our narrator, is both adoring and envious of her identical twin, whom she considers the more beautiful, not to mention more clever and more charming, sister. When the college boys—and a certain handsome grad student—begin dropping at Juno's feet (as usual, her sister assures us), Juliet becomes determined not to be outdone.
And so Juno and Juliet begin a hilariously raucous and dramatic semester, full of well-versed suitors and lively literary seminars. But soon their competitive amorous and academic pursuits lead them beyond ordinary flirtations, and life becomes extravagantly complicated—perhaps too much so for the irrepresible Taylor twins to handle on their own.
