The New York Times Bestselling duo behind Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist and The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily return with twins out to throw the party of a lifetime—or at least the best party of high school!

Siblings Sam and Ilsa Kehlmann have spent most of their high school years throwing parties for their friends—and now they’ve prepared their final blowout, just before graduation.

The rules are simple: each twin gets to invite three guests, and the other twin doesn’t know who’s coming until the partiers show up at the door. With Sam and Ilsa, the sibling revelry is always tempered with a large dose of sibling rivalry, and tonight is no exception.

One night. One apartment. Eight people. What could possibly go wrong? Oh, we all know the answer is plenty. But plenty also goes right, as well…in rather surprising ways

Sam and Isla are twins. They often give fabulous dinner parties at their grandmother's fancy NYC apartment. When their grandmother decides to give up the apartment, they decide to give one final dinner party. Sam and Isla each invite three quests that are a surprise to the other twin.
I found this book to be very pretentious and very drawn out. I did enjoy the sock puppet but the other characters felt flat and shallow. I would like to hear more about Czarina though. Otherwise, this book could have easily been a five-page short story
Good Points
