My Review:

This was a fun book, that I read in less than one sitting!
By which I mean that the pages flew by, only leaving me wanting book 2 as soon as possible!!

Totally Twins, as can be assumed by its title, is about one of my favorite subjects in the whole world, twins!!!

Persephone, our main heroine, starts a new diary, to share her exasperation for the upcoming musical their class is called to perform, and the fact that her twin sister's view about it, is somewhat more than different!

Perse and Portia share everything, their birthdays, their friends, and a face!
But, due to the performance, it's the first time Perse feels like she can't connect with her twin sister, anymore. Our heroine can't sing, and her sister seems to only make her feel bad about it.

This kind of book is exactly what I would LOVE reading when I was about the same age as the heroine!
It reminded me of my own obsession with diaries (I found it hard not to keep one, even at a quite older age) and books that were written in that form!

It was fun remembering all these facts about myself, while at the same time laughing with Perse's views of the world, and finding out so many interesting things about twins (I won't pretend I am not amazed by identical ones, to the point where I'd love my future daughters to be like Perse and Portia)!

All in all, 4 stars for a fantastic, fun and quick novel, 
that will certainly make me sought out the second novel, 
as I want to know more about my favorite twins and their amazing family!
