Thanks to Kristi’s review, I have to say this

Which starts like this:
My parents named me Dahlia, after the Black Dahlia- that actress whose body was cleaved in half, left in grass as sharp as scalpels, a permanent smile sliced onto her face – and when I first learned her story at four years old, I assumed a knife would one day carve me up. My namesake was part of me, my future doomed by her violent death. That meant my oldest brother, Charlie, who had escaped the Lindbergh baby’s fate by living past age two, would still be abducted someday. My sister, Tate, would follow in her own namesake’s footsteps, become a movie star, then become a body in a pool of blood. And my twin brother, Andy, named for Lizzie Borden’s father – I was sure his head was destined for the ax.
