SALT LAKE CITY -- A Utah mother whose twin girls overcame all odds is sharing their story one page at a time.

Kendra and Maliyah Herrin were conjoined at birth. Doctors gave them a less than 25 percent chance of survival, but three years ago, the girls were separated in a long, difficult surgery.

Today, Kendra and Maliyah are happy, active 7-year-olds. The girls' mother says theirs was a story that needed to be told.

"This isn't just a book about conjoined twins. It's a story about a family just trying to get through different trials," Erin Herrin said.

Proceeds from the book go toward the girls' medical fund. To get your own copy, visit the book's Web site at
