WORD WANDERER’s Corner
The Tapper Twins Go to War (With Each Other)
by Geoff Rodkey
RATING: Five out of Five
What a quirky laugh out loud book!! I loved it. I laughed so hard at one part that my husband was worried about me. (haha!) The format was especially cool with the real photographs, sketches, doodles, video game graphics, etc. LOVE THAT!! A must-read for middle grade!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
This bestselling first book in the Tapper Twins series is a hilariously authentic showcase of what it’s like to be in middle school in our digitally-saturated world, told as a colorful “oral history” with photos, screenshots, text messages, chat logs, and online gaming digital art.
Twelve-year-old twins, Claudia and Reese, who couldn’t be more different…except in their determination to come out on top in a vicious prank war. But when the competition escalates into an all-out battle that’s fought from the cafeteria of their New York City private school all the way to the fictional universe of an online video game, the twins have to decide if their efforts to destroy each other are worth the price. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly declared “This uproarious series opener… is packed with both laugh-out-loud moments and heart.”
