" I came across this book by chance. It's a nice middle grade level book. I thought it was quite sweet and look forward to reading more of them. Twin sisters, their brother, mother and father move to a football mad town in Texas. The book is about the twin girls, Ava and Alex. A nice book about girls growing up. " said.

"Ava and Alex's family relocate from Boston to Texas so that their father can take a job as the head football coach. Little did the girls know how crazy the town was about football. They become local celebrities, but worry about the stress that their father is under. Their older brother, Tommy, is on the high school football team, and there is some tension since he is the coach's son. Ava, who is very sporty, is more concerned about making friends (especially with the cute Jack) and surviving her middle school courses; Alex, who is very interested in fashion, is more concerned with doing well academically and adding school activities to her resume. They have some misunderstandings, and both struggle a bit to fit into the new environment, especially since they have their own rooms for the first time, but fit in well enough.

Strengths: Interesting topic-- what is it like if your father is the football coach in a town that actually cares about high school football? Relocating from Boston to Texas is an interesting transition as well, and what middle grade girl doesn't secretly want to have a twin? Fun series.

Weaknesses: Why are twins always portrayed as polar opposites? I would think there are some twins who are extremely similar to each other!

" The writing could be better, and it is meant for younger children (9-12 maybe). I do enjoy the fluffy plot though. It gives me some laughs if that is it. Definitely for girls. It's a fast read. " said.
