In this all-new version of the popular 1987 book, twins Randi and Sandi are at it again, but this time, their identical cousin Mandy is part of the shenanigans.


The Daniels twins are back! I read this book aloud to my younger daughter, and we both really enjoyed it.

Mandy, the twins' cousin from California, stays with the Daniels family for a visit. Although she may look like the girls, she tries to act much more mature than she really is. She cares far too much about her looks, wearing make-up that she really doesn't need at her age and expensive clothes. Mandy does not make a very good impression when the Daniels family picks her up at the airport. She gets mad at the twins' little brother, Teddy, when he touches her pretty dress with his chocolate-coated fingers. When the girls tell Mandy to chill out and that they will pay to have her dress cleaned, she has a snotty response to the effect that they are too poor to afford it! To top it off, Mandy's luggage is delayed and she has to wear clothes from the twins instead of her designer duds (oh! the horror!). Later, Teddy gets into Mandy's make-up set and ruins it. He is definitely on Mandy's bad side!

Dressed down and with her unpainted face, Mandy can pass for one of the twins...and she does! One of the boys from school, Chris, mistakes Mandy for Randi. She continues the charade, but the twins overhear her and realize that Mandy is pulling one of their old tricks...the switcheroo! The twins decide to get back at her to teach her a lesson.

This was a very enjoyable sequel to Double Trouble, and we like the addition of Mandy who created more drama. It was a fun read, and we are continuing on with A Double Trouble Dream Date.


4 stars!! It was really good, and you should put it on your TBR if you enjoy middle-grade fiction!
