Starting 6th grade, best friends and twins Francine and Marueen are shocked to find they no longer share the same schedule. But where Maureen finds herself alone in class and at lunch time, Francine seems to thrive in being apart. Twins by Varian Johnson and Shannon Wright is a heart-warming and impactful tale of two twins who must learn to grow into themselves, but risk growing apart. The whole cast are wonderfully realised, interactions at school and at home feel real and grounded, as difficult conversations about identity, friendship and family are handled beautifully. Every page is a delight to look at, and Shannon Wright’s art adds extra detail to every panel. Twins is a must-have for your shelf!
