    I LOVED this book!

    This book grabbed me from the beginning! I couldn't put it down. As I read it, I couldn't help but wonder how fun it would be to have a twin sister. If you're looking for a great, easy to read, summer book, this is one for you! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    AWESOME BOOK!!

    I am 11 and I highly recommend this book. I just got my nook for Christmas and I have read this book and Take Two ( the second book in the series) in book form. I bought Times Squared on my nook and I love it. This book is so far the best book in the series. Although Take Two and Times Squared are really really good, they can be a little hard to follow. Dont get me wrong every book in this series is AWESOME!

    Interesting and creative!!!

    The fictional novel Trading Faces by Julia DeVillers and Jennifer Roy was an interesting book set in New York, in present time. The story begins when identical twins Payton and Emma go to a new school in New York. In every chapter the authors explain one twin's point of view. Payton and Emma weren't in any classes together which has never happened to them before. Payton makes friends with the "cool" kids and Emma makes friends with the "nerds." Emma and Payton decide to trade places, because they were having a hard time with friends. Payton went to a newscast club (as Emma.) Emma went to the pep rally with Payton's friends (as Payton.) When Payton was on the newscast live in front of the whole school, the whole school found out that they traded places. They had to apologize on a surprise newscast. It turns out that the surprise newscast made them make totally new friends.
    Trading Faces had some positives and negatives. One positive, is that authors gave a good description about how Payton felt on the first day.
    (She was excited because she squealed a lot.) Also, when Payton was Emma, the authors made Payton say a speech that painted pictures in my mind of kids being embarrassed in front of the class. I liked that a lot. Another, is that I like the way they made Payton's best friend, Sidney, look astonished in my mind when the store asked her to be a model. One negative is that the authors really didn't explain how quite a few characters looked. Another negative, is that the authors didn't really explain some scenes, such as when they went to school. They didn't explain what happened, and not a lot made sense. Finally, the authors didn't explain how everything ended up being okay in the end; it was a cliffhanger. I think they could have had an extra couple of pages to explain the end. The authors had some great positives, but I think they could've changed a little bit of the story.
    Julia DeVillers and Jennifer Roy have a unique writing style. It seemed as though the authors liked to write short sentences such as, "I got up." Also, they authors made the characters use abbreviated words such as OMG as oh my god or cell as cell phone. But that's probably because the kids think it was cool to use words like that. Another writing style was that the author used first person. An example of that is when Emma said, "I was thinking about how many times we'd get the question." I like the authors' writing style; it makes the book both interesting and delightful to read.
