The Lovereading4Kids comment

Growing up as twins has been brilliantly captured by Jacqueline Wilson. Full of poignancy and plenty of humour throughout- it’s a real feel-good book.

Mail on Sunday Hilarious tale which contains dark notes that ring very true The Times An exuberant story ... The ingenious split narrative, inventive page design and lots of incidental pictures make this book irresistible Guardian Jacqueline Wilson has a rare gift for writing lightly and amusingly about emotional issues Bookseller Bookseller
