Black heart blue
By Louisa Reid
Penguin books

Twin sisters Rebecca and Hephzibah live a mostly secluded life dominated by their abusive father and a mother who ignores the atrocities going on around her as she tries to avoid her own beatings and abuse.
One twin is beautiful and the other, terribly disfigured from Treacher Collins syndrome. Their life is dark and empty until the girls are allowed to go to the local high school. This freedom comes at a cost and Rebecca is left alone to mourne her sister’s death.
Alone, Rebecca must learn to unravel secrets and begin to stand up for herself.
This is one of those books that will leave you feeling disturbed but it is one that must be read. It is also going to go to the top of my library order books.
