Meredith and Mallory are identical twins born on either side of midnight, one at 11:59pm and the other at 12:01am.

It's now thirteen years later and the girls are best friends, but they have completely different interests. Also, like many identical twins, they can often read each others minds and feel what the other is feeling. But their twin senses are a lot stronger than most twins. They also have the exact same dreams.

Up until one New Year's Eve when a fire breaks out at the house where they are babysitting their cousins, and the twins almost die. Someone purposely started the fire, and the twins have a pretty good idea of who that someone is.

After the fire, Mallory starts seeing strange images and scenes in her head involving David, the guy that they believe started the fire. These scenes are so strange, but Mallory believes that they are actually going to happen. But Meredith isn't seeing the same things or even having the same dreams anymore. Instead, she is seeing scenes involving David that are less creepy.

Over the next few months, what Mallory keeps seeing starts getting more disturbing, like what seems to be David almost raping a girl. She even starts having blackouts after seeing the frightening images. She tells Meredith that they need to confront David, but her sister isn't too sure about the idea. Will confronting David help the disturbing scenes to finally stop, or will they continue on forever?

This was a good book that I really enjoyed. Mallory and Meredith were great characters and it was fun to read a story about identical twins. The storyline was really great and the ending was a bit surprising to me. Parts in the middle were a bit confusing, but it could have just been me.

THE MIDNIGHT TWINS was overall a pretty good book and I hope that Ms. Mitchard writes a follow-up. I'd love to see what happens to Mallory and Meredith after the ending of this book. I'd recommend this one to anyone who likes reading either about twins or who loves the paranormal and mysteries.

boring

Wow and not in a good way. This book I thought has unremarkable characters, a forgettable storyline, and it was just plain boring. Now I read a lot and I think that I know a good book when I read one and this one just didn¿t do it for me. I thought that it sounded good ...
Wow and not in a good way. This book I thought has unremarkable characters, a forgettable storyline, and it was just plain boring. Now I read a lot and I think that I know a good book when I read one and this one just didn¿t do it for me. I thought that it sounded good but by the end I was begging for it to be over and done with. Normally I get really into my books and I find something that I can relate to with all the characters and I just couldn¿t get into it. I recommend this book to immature readers who think that every book is perfect and good.

    Disappointed

    I have to say that I was highly anticipating this book. I even brought the second one before I started reading the first one simply because everyone told me how great this book was.

    Well, I'm sorry to say that I do not agree. I found the authors writing style to be that of an amutuar making it difficult for me to get into the story. The characters are pretty basic although the storyline holds great potential. I stopped reading halfway through and do not plan on finishing this book. I'm also a little preturbed that I wasted the money to buy the second one.
