Twins: Volume 1
About this deal
I don’t think I can say too much about this one without giving away too much of the plot - I went in completely blind and think you all should do as well. If you’d like trigger warnings please DM as this book does explore some serious topics ☺️ Though published over 20 years ago, Eileen M. Pearlman and Jill Allison Ganon’s guide to raising twins offers a lot of information that is still relevant.

Lovitz interviews adult twins, their siblings, and other specialists who work with twins to help you understand what it takes to raise twins who can also function as independent people. It's hard to step out of the shadow of a sibling, it's hard figuring out middle school, and who you are as a person, and navigating friendships. Now imagine that the sibling whose shadow you're in is your identical twin! Now imagine that they feel the same way about you!I love it when a story has characters you don’t quite trust and this book is full of them! Everyone seemed so on edge and damaged, it was extremely unnerving and I was desperate to find out why?! Most twin guidebooks focus on mom’s journey since she is often the one with the most responsibilities related to carrying and raising two.

This graphic novel is super cute. And I think this would actually be great for reluctant young readers who struggle to stay focused on chapter books. I just really loved this and while it did talk a lil about having crushes on people at school (and even had a moment or two where it was obvious it didn’t have to be a girl liking a boy), I preferred that the main focus was on Maureen and her relationship with Francine and what sixth grade can feel like. Have you ever wished you had a doctor available to help you answer the questions you have about parenting multiples? Well, now you do!Identical twins are fascinating, and Lori Duffy Foster wanted to know everything she could about her children and what their identical-twin status meant.
