Our Thoughts:
These books were very entertaining. My daughter read each of them and found them to be very entertaining and funny. She said she liked both of the twins, but in different ways. Her favorite among the four books was the Birthday Bonanza, but she said she wishes there were more books about the twins for her to read.

The books are written in diary format from a middle-schooler perspective. The language is very easy to follow and read, and very obvious written for the middle school age group. From a parenting perspective, I thought the books were entertaining and somewhat funny at times. The twins seem like fun girls who enjoy their lives.

These are great books to have in a middle-school book collection. I plan to keep them on our shelves for several years as I know my daughter will come back to them many times as she reads throughout the years.
