The Trouble with Twins
When the deed is discovered, Henrietta is quickly banished—sent to live with her eccentric great-aunt Priscilla on Chillington Lane, where black cats roam the dark rooms and tonight’s menu is fish-head stew! Suddenly life with pretty, popular Arabella doesn’t seem so awful.
And, though she’s been grievously wronged, Arabella longs for her sister, too. So she hatches a plan of her own and embarks on an unexpected journey to reunite with her other half.
The Trouble with Twins is an adventure and a comedy—a tale of the power of unlikely friendships, the bond between sisters . . . and the way a bit of mischief sometimes sets everything right.
This has a classic vibe to it, and is set in a vague time in the past-- the 1970s, perhaps? The illustrations definitely reinforce that feeling.
This is a great book for anyone who's ever wanted to run away from home, and will be popular with readers of Woods' The Incorrible Children of Ashton Place or Stewart's The Mysterious Benedict Society.
