Gr 3 Up–Jessica and Elizabeth are identical twins who used to do everything together. But after 12 years of sharing the same room, wearing the same clothes, and doing the same activities, middle school is going to change everything. Now Jessica is interested in joining the Unicorns, an exclusive club for popular girls. Meanwhile, Elizabeth is more interested in starting a school newspaper and inviting her friends to work on it with her. The twins no longer feel the same way about boys, or ballet, or how important it is to be popular. While much of this story is light and fluffy, it also explores issues like peer pressure, sibling rivalry, and the limits of friendship. The graphic novel format will introduce this classic series to a new generation, and the colorful artwork will attract even the most reluctant readers.
VERDICT For fans of the “Sweet Valley” series, as well as any readers looking for girl-centric stories about friendship, fighting, and forgiveness.
