Look Both Ways by Jacquelyn Mitchard



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.

Cover Comments: Once again, as with the cover of The Midnight Twins, I do like the parallelism with the water--it's a neat effect. This is a prettier, more mysterious and romantic cover that its prequel's, with the creamy dress and the golden light. It is quite alluring--when you pick it up, you don't expect it to be about 14 year olds. Nonetheless, it's a keeper!

Look Both Ways will be available from Razorbill April 2nd, 2009!
