Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6–9—In this sequel to Midnight Twins (Razorbill, 2008), 14-year-old Meredith and Mallory are still getting used to their gifts: Merry can see the past and Mally can see the future. The story is told from both of their perspectives. Mally sees a vision of a white lion swiping a cheerleader's shoes. She tells her vision to Merry, who later witnesses a cheerleader injured and hospitalized. The shoes had been sabotaged. As Merry tries to find the culprit, Mally tries to figure out who or what the white lion is. She is also worried about her friend Eden, a junior who is secretly seeing a college guy. Eden, a Cree, invites Mally to a tribal powwow, where she meets Eden's younger brother, who is visiting from prep school. She is instantly attracted to Cooper, who explains about the significance of the white lion in his tribe. Can Mally help Eden make the right choice about her relationship? Can Merry find the culprit before the next cheerleading tryouts? The plot is predictable and the characters are clichés; however, the Native American cultural elements breathe fresh life into what is otherwise standard teen chick-lit fare.—Samantha Larsen Hastings, West Jordan Public Library, UT

From Booklist

If kids haven’t read the first book in the Midnight Twins series featuring Merry and Mallory (one can see the future; the other can look into the past), no problem. There’s lots and lots of backstory here, though it’s rather awkwardly written. In fact, there’s lots of awkward writing and plenty of flat characters here, which is surprising considering Mitchard’s reputation in the adult field. Still, the mix of prophetic visions and dreams, friends in dire straits, and cheerleading tryouts will keep some readers turning pages, and the good news is, nobody is a vampire (at least not yet). Grades 7-10. --Ilene Cooper

I read Look Both Ways by Jacquelyn Mitchard without having read the first book in this series. This was not as problematic as I thought it would be. This novel was fairly well written and kept the reader on their toes the entire time. One thing led to another and all of the sudden…plot twist!

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.

Format: Hardcover
Meredith and Mallory Brynn are identical twins, exact mirror images of each other. Friends and family can tell them apart by their personalities: Meredith is outgoing, bubbly and a cheerleader, and Mallory is more of a loner, serious and a soccer player. Being twins is something unique in itself, but a few added phenomena even set the Brynn girls apart from other twins. For one, they don't even share the same birth year. That's because one was born just before midnight on New Year's Eve, and the other arrived just after midnight on New Year's Day. The other unique characteristic they share is their psychic abilities. Mally sees visions of the future, while Merry sees visions of the past.

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.

Format: Hardcover
Ever since the death of David Jellico, Mallory and Merry Brynn have slowly slipped back into normal life, Merry worrying about cheerleading, and Mally about soccer. But when a vision reveals a cheerleader getting seriously injured, their old fears and apprehensions come rushing back. As they struggle to find he culprit, Mallory stumbles upon a secret her friend Eden has been keeping. This revelation causes Merry and Mally to rush to find the answers they need before the unspeakable can occur.

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.
