Overview

In the third book of the Midnight Twins trilogy, Mally and Merry's supernatural dream visions are put to the test when their baby brother is kidnapped? and by someone who has grown very close to the Brynn family.

Meanwhile, Meredith is distracted by the strange new boy in town. But there's one problem with her new romance: he's a ghost from the past, a boy who actually died in the Vietnam War and is struggling with his soul.

Mallory must help her sister let go of a love that was never meant to be-and the twins must come together and use their powers to save their baby brother.

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
