Twins Claudia and Reese have always butted heads, but one morning what started out as an argument turned in to an all-out war between the two. As Reese and Claudia scheme up ways to prank the other twin and ultimately win the war, pictures, illustrations, and text messages give you an inside look at their mischievous lives. A fun, enjoyable and humorous read, Geoff Rodkey’s latest book will definitely get love from the middle-grade audience.
This book was SO MUCH FUN to read. I enjoyed most every second of it and will admit that I did breeze through it in one day. This book made me laugh at times, and made me cringe at others because of the mean things Reese and Claudia did to each other. This is TOTALLY just me, but the fact that the character Xander in this book was a JERK didn’t mix well with me for obvious reasons. Also, Metaworld: I want that to be a real thing haha. I’d totally play on Planet Amigo! I LOVED the media aspects to this story; it really added a unique touch to this story. It made the story very realatable and you could see it all play out, basically, on paper which was super cool. I also totally have a crush on this cover. I don’t think siblings would ACTUALLY do this in real life and go that far with it, but that is the fun of fiction! I will most definitely look forward to Claudia and Reese’s other adventures in the near future! I don’t know where the story will go since it seemed to have a pretty solid ending, but it makes me all the more curious!
