I enjoy books that involve romance, mystery, and sci-fi so this book did not let me down. It was a tasteful combination of all of these genres and thoroughly satisfied all of my needs. The romance was light but left you wondering what will happen next. The mystery portion was the bulk of the novel with the sisters having varying ideas about what happened to their friend. Finally, the sci-fi portion was done well with it only appearing part way through the novel.
I personally have always wanted to have a twin. I have heard from many of the people I know who are twins that it isn’t always as fun as it seems but I still fail to understand how it couldn’t be fun. If I were an identical twin, like the girls in this novel, I would constantly be playing tricks on my friends and family, pretending to be the other one. Also, how neat would it be to always have someone to talk to. Someone you can talk about your crushes with and someone who you can tell all of your secrets. When I was younger, I would always dream about having a twin that was born the next day, like Meredith and Mallory. You could confuse so many people by saying that you are a twin but you and your twin both have different birthdays. I mean, how neat would that be!?
I would recommend this novel to anyone who is looking for a light read during the school year to take a break from the new load of homework. It is more geared towards the 13-year-old readers but will satisfy any reader looking for a cute story.
The most recent vision wakes Mally out of her dreams, screaming. She sees a white mountain lion prowling the locker room at school where the cheerleaders' outfits are stored. Stranger yet, she knows the mountain lion, though she's not sure how. The twins figure it has something to do with the cheerleader varsity tryouts quickly approaching. And then one of the cheerleaders ends up in the hospital.
Meanwhile, Merry and Mally begin keeping secrets from one another when each has a friend in trouble. Merry's friend, Kim, so devastated from her brother's death a few months earlier, has started hanging out at the ravine where troublemakers go to smoke and drink. Mally's friend, Eden, continues to sneak away to see her boyfriend, James, even though her family forbids it. And then Eden confides to Mally just why the relationship is so forbidden, an explanation that roots deep in her Native American heritage and is almost too wild to believe. Eden's brother, Cooper, approaches Mally for help in protecting Eden, and along the way, he and Mally start falling in love.Read more ›
Look Both Ways is an entertaining continuation of Jacquelyn Mitchard's The Midnight Twins trilogy. In this installment, Mitchard stretches beyond just the twins' strange abilities to include local folklore and magic, making Mally and Merry's world more believable and three dimensional. Readers aren't given many more clues as to how the twins' powers work, but Mitchard reveals just enough to keep readers interested and excited for the next book in the series. Besides building upon the supernatural elements of the book, Mitchard also explores day to day issues and takes a look at how the twins deal with the new, normal changes in their lives, from family dynamics to boyfriends. The even balance between the two gives Look Both Ways its appeal, and will make it a popular book among younger teens.
