Well, we're putting boxes of spare things away in the garage and I'm planning on donating some of my old books. However, I thought I'd reread them first :). Well, due to the target audience this is written very simply. Also, I find it hard to identify with them now as I find it a little too focussed around guys considering my conflicting experiences at that age and since then. However, it's fun to reread them and bits of storylines keep popping up in my head :).

Too bad their dad doesn't see it the same way. Now the twins need a plan--a plan to show Dad just how right they are!

I read this series when I was about 10 I reckon? I absolutely loved them, they're such a good series for young kids I reckon =]
I'm sure my opinion would be a little different if I read them now but I did really love them =P

I loved this book when I was younger! It was an easy and fast read. It was also entertaining since they also had a television series.

Sweet, nice, heartwarming; although the story was a bit predictable. Nonetheless, I loved this book as a kid when I was 11. Still love it. :* :D

I thought Mary-Kate and Ashley were really cool. I think it's cool that Ashley likes fashion and Mary-kate likes basketball. I liked Ashley more than Mary-kate because I love fashion as well.

I was a huge fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and was on an endeavour to collect all their movies and books.

Two of a Kind was a cute little series that offered interesting storylines.
