Overview

Mallory and Meredith Brynn are no ordinary twins: born on either side of midnight, one has the power to see into the future, the other into the past.

But supernatural visions can’t keep Merry from falling for the new boy in town, even if the relationship is doomed from the start. The reason? Ben is a ghost. And revealing the truth about her own power would mean the end of their blossoming love.

As Merry falls for Ben, the twins sense a dark shadow encroaching on their family’s inner circle: someone wants their beloved little brother, and that someone will stop at nothing to take him away. Using their supernatural visions, the twins must come together to save their brother from harm. And along the way, they’re forced to question the loyalty of everyone in their lives, even those closest to them. . . .

Jacquelyn Mitchard uses her skill as a novelist to bring us a story that is truly based in family and mystery — and at the same time threatens all that we hold most dear.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Chrystie Marino
The Brynn sisters are not your typical twins. Aptly named the midnight twins, both girls were born on either side of midnight. One possesses the power to see in the future, the other the ability to see into the past. When Merry sees new guy, Ben, she feels an instant connection to him. As she grows to know him, strong feelings develop, however, there are some peculiarities regarding Ben. Nobody seems to know the boy in the worn leather jacket who has come into their town. Merry is perplexed that nobody else seems to even know that Ben exists. With the help of Mally, Merry finally comes to the realization that Ben is a ghost, a young soldier killed many years before, who has finally found his way home for his long overdue funeral. Another perplexing event arises in the twins' lives, their beloved little brother, Owen, has become sickly. He is constantly coming down with serious ailments that threaten his young life. The twins must work together to figure out who in their family's circle of trust is knowingly putting Owen in danger before it is too late. Merry must also make a choice. With Ben to be buried, his spirit will no longer be displaced and she must decide to go with him or stay here on Earth. In the end true love does not prove as strong as the bond between sisters. Mitchard's story is unique and downright chilling. The idea of a love story between a human girl and a ghost is an interesting challenge to tackle and prompts the reader to wonder at what sacrifice love must come. Young readers should exercise caution, as Watch for Me by Moonlight contains some disturbing concepts. It is the third novel in the "Midnight Twins" series. Reviewer: Chrystie Marino
School Library Journal
Gr 6–9—Twins Mallory and Meredith were both born with gifts. One can see the future while the other can see the past. Both girls feel like the gift is actually a curse. Their 15th year starts out well, until their youngest brother becomes sick. The twins, with help from their visions, realize that someone or something is causing his illness. Merry meets and falls for Ben, but only she can see him. She begins to realize that he is a ghost, and she must decide if she is going to help him pass on to the next life or keep him in this world. Mally fears for her brother and for her twin, who she sees in her visions making the ultimate decision to stay with Ben. Jacquelyn Mitchard's mystery with a supernatural twist (Razorbill, 2010), the final title in the trilogy, is peopled by a wonderful cast of characters. Emily Durante provides unique voices for them all, but what is so remarkable is her ability to use the same voice for Merry and Mally, but distinguish their unique moods and personalities in such a way that listeners can tell them apart. The ending is neatly drawn up, perhaps too much so, as listeners are told exactly what happens in the future to the characters. For fans of the supernatural and mystery.—Sarah Flood, Breckinridge County Public Library, Hardinsburg, KY
