In their world, telling the truth has become the most dangerous crime of all.
In the near-future United States, a one-child policy is ruthlessly enforced. Everyone follows the Rule of One. But Ava Goodwin, daughter of the head of the Texas Family Planning Division, has a secret—one her mother died to keep and her father has helped to hide for her entire life.
She has an identical twin sister, Mira.
Born to a death sentence in a near-future America, rebellious sisters herald a revolution—if they can survive.
Twins Ava and Mira Goodwin defy the Rule of One simply by existing. The single-child law, ruthlessly enforced by Texas’s Governor Roth, has made the sisters famous fugitives and inspirations for the resurgent rebellion known as the Common.
But the relentless governor and his implacable Texas State Guard threaten that fragile hope, as Roth consolidates his power in a bid for ultimate authority.
Disobedience means death. But a life worth living demands rebellion.

At age thirteen, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, inspired the twin sisters to be storytellers. Shaping their creative collaboration in film school at the University of Texas at Austin, Ashley and Leslie went on to write, direct and produce several award-winning short films that have screened for festivals such as SXSW. Ol’ Daddy, produced by the sisters, won the prestigious Gold Medal at the Student Academy Awards in 2012.
