Tegan Quin recounts the first song her sister Sara ever wrote in an excerpt from the sibling duo's new book, 'High School. The siblings wrote the book together, alternating chapters, and across more than pages, they recount their formative years, and the beginnings of their musical collaboration. High School is out on September 24th. Read the next chapter, in which Sara Quin recounts the first time the two played the song for their friends, here. One afternoon while Mom and Bruce were out, Sara and I were rooting around in the storage under the stairs when we found a guitar case tucked between two towers of office supply boxes. But once we saw the guitar case, we forgot about what we were searching for and that we were breaking his cardinal rule: never mess with his stuff.

To be a twin can be a psychological house of mirrors. And so where better to meet up with Tegan and Sara Quin — feminist pop heroes, freshly minted authors, and, like us, identical twins — than at a kaleidoscopic infinity room in Chelsea? As we left the small mirrored room at the kitschy Museum of Illusions , where our likenesses warped and refracted, we encountered a third set of twins. Reality grew ever more psychedelic, and we snapped a photograph of the six of us to commemorate it. They discovered and explored their sexuality. They sneaked out to raves, dropped acid, fought authority. When a classmate spewed homophobic statements during a lesson on STDs, Sara hurled a chair across the room.

Hello Everyone especially people who like photos and words , We have some great news to announce today! Sara and I had no idea people would love the books so much. Which is why they sold out so quick. It appears we did not make enough. Everyone seems to have loved their box sets but..
They were wholly unglamorous teenagers, and just as embarrassing as those simple lyrics suggest. It is not the tale of how the musicians became internationally known, or how they were able to sustain their career for two decades, or even how they managed to bust out of a strictly Canadian music market when so many of their peers struggle to entice listeners across the border. Instead, they offer a hilarious, cringe-y distillation of their adolescence, the holistic portrait of artists as young women that goes beyond your run-of-the-mill biography. Tegan and Sara trade off each chapter—written separately and combined in a cohesive fashion I imagine only identical twins could—and detail their first loves, first songs, first kisses, first time fooling around, first time sneaking out of the house, first boyfriends, first breakups with said boyfriends, first girlfriends, first hickeys, first time their mom questioned their sexuality, and so on. They both came to terms with their queerness in different ways and at different points in High School. Their immediate similarities appear to be their appearance and their interest in breaking the rules.
