In Twin Spin, identical twin sisters Anna and Steph might look the same, but the similarities end there. The plot centres around a swift move pulled by one of the sisters, who steals the other’s identity. So suddenly, the budding journalist Anna finds herself unwittingly stepping into rap-loving sister Steph’s boy-band obsessed shoes and vice-versa! How long can they keep up the charade? Will anyone find out? Will they mess it up? What we soon learn is that Steph is the ring-leader of this case of identity theft, and that things are definitely going to get messy. A gorgeous and age-appropriate way of delivering a sweet message about learning about someone by walking a mile in their shows. Like, literally!
A fun romp for readers 7+, Adam Cece’s style is engaging, just silly enough and full of suspense at every turn. My four year old loved having this read to him as well!
