This story really has everything it needs to be loved: Heartwarming characters, relatable storylines, thrilling cliffhangers and surprising plot twists.

We've all been there, cross my heart: In the closet, afraid that someone finds out about you being different.

The author also takes responsibility for writing empathetically about topics like coming out and bullying.

Gemini's roughly based on "The Prince and the Pauper" and "Lottie and Lisa" and I first wondered back then if it was a good idea to steal the idea of others who came before. Then I asked myself how hard it is, to come up with completely new ideas, but then I realized that the real challenge is to tell stories again but in a way that blows the reader's minds. And what can I say—he nailed it. The story is way more than just a role swap, more than just 27+1 chapters of coming out and not just 50 % bullying. It's a nice mix of all that and more which makes the reading experience so stunning.

So, it's not much of a surprise that I agree with what Andrew Q. Gordon said in Ask an Author:

I know I’m not the only one glad that Sammy didn’t leave us hanging at chapter 23!
