Twin sisters Daisy (now Kate) and Violet were born with psychic ability which they call "senses". While Violet cultivated her senses and makes a living at psychic predictions, Kate let her gift wither away. A crisis occurs when Violet predicts an earthquake and becomes a media sensation. This novel explores the meaning of family during crisis. The author did a great job of making St. Louis come alive in the novel.

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room right away. The star of Curtis Sittenfeld’s SISTERLAND is a boring, anxiety-plagued stay-at-home mom in the St. Louis burbs. If that’s not going to work for you, there’s no point trying to talk you into it. For the rest of you, I think that’s why I crush so hard on Curtis Sittenfeld’s writing. She makes the quietest lives feel so full; the most ordinary desires feel gigantic. But let’s also talk about what’s not ordinary about SISTERLAND. Psychic twins. (Psychic twins!!!) Natural disasters. Junior high schoolers with Ouija boards. Catty best friends. Suicidal moms and stoic dads. Daytime TV stars and fancy LA publicists. I love the way Sittenfeld takes so much drama and makes it feel so accessible and familiar. I also don’t think she’s gotten enough credit, in SISTERLAND, for the elegant way she manipulates time and keeps thrusting the story forward toward the edge of the cliff. I listened to the audiobook read by Rebecca Lowman, and she so totally nailed the smallness and the enormity of the internal lives of a Midwestern family thrown into an irrevocable disaster.

Sittenfeld is a great writer and story teller, although I didn't feel Sisterland was quite as good as her earlier works. This book is about twin sisters, Kate & Vi, with psychic abilities. All the characters were well developed and the author did a great job of effortlessly moving back and forth between past and present. This book is very captivating and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.
