From the china-blue eyes and silky blonde hair to their clear piping voices, Gretchen and Mary were identical in every respect. If it weren’t for the doll that Gretchen started carrying around with her, no one would have been able to tell them apart. And oddly enough, the doll was a miniature replica of the twins…

One of the very few books I couldn't finish because it was so damn boring. I even bought this book thinking it looked good and the cover scared me, but I just couldn't get into it.
