Twin sisters, Francine and Maureen Carter, do everything together. Francine is the outgoing and articulate twin. Maureen is the straight-A student and shy twin. When it was time to enter middle school, everyone mistook them for the other. The twins ended up in separate classes so they can have some independence from each other. Having some space from each other was proving difficult. Problems arise when both Maureen and Francine decide to run for Student Body President. Competition gets ugly and dirty politics causes some tension in the Carter family. It’s difficult when siblings excel in an area which can cause some jealousy and sibling rivalry. The problems between Francine and Maureen could have been avoided if they had communicated with each other better. The parents also decided to hide certain things from Maureen which I didn’t understand. They could have easily just talked with Maureen to help her understand that Francine needed some space to herself. Instead, they decided to lie to Maureen and kept secrets from her which made her misunderstand Francine. Twins is a wonderful graphic novel about sisterhood. Graphic novel enthusiasts will love this story about sibling rivalry and finding your own identity.
