Reviews

Gr 3-6-Ten-year-old identical twins Ruby and Garnet do everything together but discover that this isn't necessarily the best thing as they deal with their widower father's remarriage and their own underlying rivalry. The entertaining journal kept by the girls, with numerous black-and-white cartoon drawings and distinguishing typefaces, reads like a conversation. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Ten-year-old British twins Ruby and Garnet take turns narrating this broad comedy, a winner of the Smarties Prize; PW described it as "an unexceptional mix of familiar plot devices." Ages 9-12. (Apr.)
