Alex and Ava try to figure out if they can read each other’s minds in the eighth book of the It Takes Two series!
Alex and Ava’s older brother Tommy always jokes that the twins can read each other’s minds. While it’s true that despite their differences Alex and Ava can usually tell what the other is thinking, that doesn’t mean they’re telepathic. But when the girls choose the same Halloween costume, buy Coach the same birthday present, and show up at school wearing the same outfit, they begin to wonder if Tommy might by right. Can Alex and Ava actually read each other’s minds? And if so, how can they use this to their advantage?
Belle Payton isn’t a twin herself, but she does have twin brothers! She spent much of her childhood in the bleachers reading—er, cheering them on—at their football games. Though she left the South long ago to become a children’s book editor in New York City, Belle still drinks approximately a gallon of sweet tea a week and loves treating her friends to her famous homemade mac-and-cheese. Belle is the author of many books for children and tweens, and is currently having a blast writing two sides to each It Takes Two story.
For A Whole New Ball Game: "The twin device is effectively deployed as each girl seeks to understand herself independently, in relation to her twin, and in the context of her new town; there's also appeal in the plot's sitcom elements of overheard conversations, secret observations, and all the uncertainty that comes with being a new place."
