Read an Excerpt

And so it begins in front of the fire, the story of two twin sisters. One remains with her family in their lovely country house, where yellow roses perfume the air. The other waits for her in another house, where she stands alone at huge arched windows. She is restless, pacing wooden floors that creak in the night when a cat jumps down from the bed to chase at shadows.

The Trouble With Twins is the story of two twin girls named, Arabella and Henrietta who are identical but different in so many ways. Henrietta does something bad to Arabella while she is sleeping that gets her sent away to live with an Great-Aunt that nobody cares about anymore. As Arabella realizes what life is like without her other half, she sets out to go find her and discovers what it truly means to have a twin in a heart-warming ending that will bring everyone back together once again. I found this book to be great in the sense that it might teach someone that family is everything no matter how bad or different they are from you. The parts that went back and forth from the story-teller to what the girls were doing, was perfect for this story and having that little background story fit in with what was going on at the time was kinda cool to have! I'm gonna put my two cents in and say that this book would be the perfect book to start a series about these two girls as they grow up and have the other characters be involved as well! Thank You to Kathryn Siebel for writing such a great story that any age group will come to love!! I received this book from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
