Totally Twins: Musical Mayhem, by Aleesah Darlison, ill. Serena Geddes, ISBN 9781921042348, New Frontier Publishing
Reviewed by Melissa, 10, WA
This book is actually Persephone Pinchgut’s diary! She is a nearly eleven year old girl with a twin sister, Portia. They’re exactly the same, but the only differences are Persephone likes her hair in a ponytail and she also has a tear drop birthmark near her eye. On the other hand, Portia likes her hair down and she doesn’t have the birthmark. Their mum is divorced, very busy and a health freak.
The school musical is coming up but the only problem is Persephone can’t sing and Mrs Tamarind wants everyone in the musical. Portia is certain she will get the main part. Portia, Jolie and Caitlin (the gang) start acting mean about the fact that Persephone can’t sing! Will Portia get the main part? Will Caitlin and Jolie stop teasing? Will Persephone get through with this?
I really enjoyed this book, it was really funny. I rate it 9/10!
