A year ago on a snowy night in New York two sisters boarded a plane to India. Each arrived at the airport separately, checked in separately, and caught sight of the other in the waiting lounge but only acknowledged her with a nod. On the plane they sat and read magazines in seats twenty-four rows apart, for the entire seventeen-hour flight. Alexa and Kaili were traveling to India for one of their so-called “bonding trips.” Unfortunately, they had stopped speaking to each other twelve hours earlier. In fact, right up until five hours before the plane departed, Alexa threatened to not come at all. “I tortured Kaili for as long as I could,” said Alexa. “I wanted to punish her.”
