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.

I really really loved this book. I finished it in a week and was upset it was over. I thought this book kept you at the edge of your seat and I recomend it for everyone looking for a good book. The plot was thrilling. You are making a GREAT dicission when buying this book. But that's just my opinion.

Meredith and Mallory Brynn are thirteen year old identical mirror twins. They've always led a rather charmed life up until they're caught up in a house fire. They manage to survive, but after the fire, they discover that Meredith has the ability to see into the past while Mallory has the ability to see into the future. Thanks to their gifts, they soon discover that someone in the neighborhood isn't at all what he seems. Will they be able to save the town from danger without everyone thinking that they're crazy?

I really enjoyed this book. I have identical mirror twins of my own, so the characters of Merry and Mally really appealled to me. I think Ms. Mitchard did a great job of capturing the closeness of identical twins. The book was a fast read and it held my attention throughout. The ending of the book was a good setup for the next in the series which I'm looking forward to. I would definitely recommend the book to fans of the young adult genre.

Meredith and Mallory are mirror twins born on either side of midnight on New Year’s Eve. They also happen to have magical powers. Sounds interesting, right? The problem? Well, the story gets confusing when within a dialog the names change from Mallory to Mally to Mal (all the same person). At the beginning I couldn't make sense of Meredith - Merry - Mer but then I figured they were all the same twin. I got fed up with having to keep up with the names and the names of the other characters as well. I was really enjoying the book at the beginning but when I started to get mixed up with the nicknames I lost interest and put it down.

I have read all 3 books and LOVED them all. COULDNT PUT IT DOWN! Loved the storyline although it is not really appropriate for younger kids. I would maybe say 7th grade and up. But thats just my opinon. I also liked how the story quickly progress and doest get to boring. But that can also confuse people and be hard to understand.But overal really GREAT books! I loved them all!

I enjoyed this book a lot. The characters were fun and easy to get to know. They weren't typical stereotypes. Plus, I'm an Identical twin, so I like reading things about twins and how authors perceive them. Well done to this book! I would have liked to have seen more with the visions...and more with the relationship issue among the girls, but overall, wellllll done. Great easy read. One day snowed inside my house and it was read. Easy, quick, enjoyable.

At first i didnt have high hopes for this book when i got.but then i read it and i was like"Oh my God! this is so great!" It was a breath of fresh air for me, no dark romance or vampires or werewolf, it wasnt a spinoff of twilight like a lot of books are. i really liked the characters and the twins were so interesting because even if they were nothing alike yet the were as close as two people could be. it was totally oringal.

This really is all about life. I know some people disagree but it shows that you can't trust anyone when stuff starts going on in or near your nieghbrohod. Not even your twin if you are one and you mom dad or the preson your sister is crushing on. The only people you can trust is your self heck maybe not even your self. Read this if you want to see what i mean and how this relates to life.

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.
