Witch Twins is book one of the series. It is pretty good story aimed at older elementry age or higher. The twins look a like but are way different. They try to help and sometimes they try to use witch craft but they are newer witches and get into trouble.
Claire and Luna's dad is getting remarried and they are afraid they will loose him. That he will move away so they want to stop the wedding. The girls dont like change.
It keeps your attention in the story and has some good lessons that the girls learn along the way.
I would give this too my niece who loves to read. I think she would like it. I would read the other Witch Twins book in the series. It is fun story dealing with some real problems that a lot of kids face. No not the witch part.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review of it from Netgalley.
Description taken from Netgalley about Witch Twins
Claire and Luna may be witches, but there’s no easy spell to stop a wedding!
Though identical on the outside, ten-year-old twins Claire and Luna Bundkin are as different on the inside as peaches and peanut butter. Claire is mischievous and Luna is a dreamer, but they do share a favorite hobby: witchcraft. Whether it’s making breakfast or washing dishes, there’s nothing a five-star witch can’t accomplish with a wave of her pinkie finger. But there are two strict rules: Don’t tell Mom, and don’t try any spells without Grandy—their magical grandmother—watching. ¿When Claire and Luna’s father announces that he’s getting remarried to a loudmouthed Texas woman named Fluffy, the twins know they need to do something to stop the wedding. Fluffy wouldn’t be a bad stepmother, but Claire and Luna know that she would lure their father to far-away Houston. A spell might be the only way to save their Dad, and they’ll try anything. Even if magic usually lands them in a pot of trouble.¿This ebook features a personal history by Adele Griffin including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s own collection.

This was an awesome book that I recommend. I ordered it from the local library and was the first one to read the library's copy. My friend Taylor is reading it now, and she thinks it's awesome, too. I think all 3-5 grade students should read this book. There's also a sequel coming out soon that's called Witch Twins at Camp Bliss. I expect on reading that one, too.Was this review helpful?

Claire and Luna look like ordinary, ten-year-old identical twins. But they're not. The girls have inherited magic powers from their maternal grandmother, and are on their way to becoming witches. When their father announces that he's marrying his girlfriend, annoying Fluffy, the girls are devastated. They fear that Fluffy will steal their father, and possibly even persuade him to move to her home state of Texas. The desperate girls are denied help by their grandmother, who insists it's against the rules to change Destiny. Claire and Luna are on their own if they want to stop the wedding, but their plans will have unexpected and hilarious results. This was an entertaining, funny book that I reccomend to young readers who enjoy light, humorous fantasy novels.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
