  • 4 stars for middles schoolers, 2 stars for adults

    The suggested reading level for The Twin is grades 7-9, and I can definitely see kids that age enjoying this book. That’s why I gave it four stars. As for how I enjoyed this book, reading it as an adult, I would be giving it two stars. Natasha Preston did a wonderful job keeping the twists coming and the gas lighting to a maximum. I can see middle schoolers really being creeped out by Iris’s actions and enjoying the relationship between Ivy and her boyfriend, Ty. The Twin reminded me of all the Fear Street books I read by R.L. Stine when I was in middle school, it’s predictable, but at that age, kids love reading the same type of stories over and over… and even as adults, there are some people who will only read the same genre. I can see both young adults and adults not enjoying the ending. I know I didn’t. It made me angry. But after I let my anger steep a bit, I came to like the ending. Life is rarely fair, so why should I expect a book to be the same? And if I want a happy ending I can always read a cozy mystery or a romance novel. Now to review this book as an adult…. The first 20% of the book is Ivy going on about her mother’s death and wanting to give Iris space. If Prest0n w0uld have toned that down to 5% of the book and took the extra 15% and added it to the ending to flesh it out more and to not have it be over so quick, I think that would have really improved the book. And I just couldn’t get over how mature Ivy and Ty’s relationship was. Their communication is better than a lot of adults I know! It just didn’t feel real to me at all. I did like that this could show middle schoolers what goals to set for your relationships though. Then there’s the point that even with how solid their relationship is, Ty who seems to be on Ivy’s side, just suddenly isn’t. This really ticked me off, and I think could have added another layer to the store if he would have continued to believe in Ivy. Since Ivy is a straight A student, and seems to be street smart as well as book smart, I just could reconcile the fact that it took her so long to see how devious her twin was. I would think since they hadn’t lived together for over six years it would be even easier to see through Iris’s lies and schemes. If you know middle schoolers who love to read suspense, they will probably really enjoy The Twin. But if you’re an adult and read a lot of suspense and thrillers, you may want to try You are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkenan instead!

  • The Twin

    This book was one of the best books i've read this year. With many gripping twists it made sure that you couldn't put it down. It definetly made sure that you hung on to every word. I recomend this book for ages 13-17. Its definetly one of the best books of 2020 so far.

  • I didnt like this book unfortunately

    If im being honest, i didnt end up readign the whole book and stopped a quarter of the way in for two reasons: 1. The main character was annoying. Many of the things she did nd the author described seemed to be for the purpose of making her seemquirky. The author portrays her as some kind of outsider to make her seem different, when in reality she has a boyfriend and a few very good friends. She likes scess ad gets stressed whenthins dont go her way, and although this is a relatable characteristic, i felt that overal lshe wasnt someone i could see myself as or relate to. 2. There were grammatical errors and the suspicions she had seemd to be over barely anything. A couple of times the tenses in some sentences made it seem not the best. Smetimes the word was was exchanged for is. The supicions the character had about her sister were over little things and didnt hint at anythin big. This kind of made the main character seem like she was overthinking things a bit too much. Overall while i would say that the story di seem quite good from what i read from the synopsis and did seem tobe rmaping up a bit where i left it, i didnt like the mancharacter and some of the aspects of the story.

    Thanks for your feedback!
