Merry is bubbly, outgoing, and optimistic.

Mally is thoughtful, solitary, and independent.

The twins think of themselves as one. They dream the same dreams, experience the same emotions, and even share a language nobody else can understand.

Then, on their 13th birthday, a mysterious fire nearly kills them both. Suddenly, they begin having strange visions - different visions - and the bond between them begins to unravel.

They discover that they have each been given a gift...But what they see in the visions they have of those closest to them could destroy their lives. Download and start listening now!

    " Very well set-up, good paranormal book for paranormal fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melliott | 2/19/2014

    " I really liked this book! I'm going straight out to get the sequel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Courtney | 2/3/2014

    " interesting premise, but kind of sloppy execution. i know that it's the beginning of a series, but there's really not enough going on to make me want to continue with it. the ending is a let-down, and, while the twins and their mother are more or less fleshed out, the rest of the characters are extremely two-dimensional (or barely introduced at all). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly | 1/23/2014

    " This is an amazing story about two twins born on opposite sides of midnight. Whether you believe in psychic abilities or not (and there are studies that say twins do share a psychic link) this is an engrossing story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The author's note indicates that there will be more books about The Midnight Twins. I can't wait. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 1/20/2014

    " This book was the first book i read during this school year, and for a while, i am normally a big reader, but I had just gotten out of it for a while. This book was a very easy book to just jump right into. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 1/17/2014

    " a rather spooky book about a pair of twins.the author has just started wrighting books for young adults and this is an attention grabber. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Darcy | 1/14/2014

    " I gave this one up after the first disc. The whole relationship between the twins bugged me. I also thought it was petty of the mother to be jealous of the twins. Then when they were older and talking about the birthday party each girl irritated me with her individual pettiness. This one just wasn't for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/4/2014

    " I remember reading Mitchard's The Deep End of the Ocean when it was first published. I haven't read it since but can still remember very specific passages and images. This book had some of those same elements. At times, I could see the twins, Mally and Merry, like they were standing right in front of me. That said, I found myself having to re-read a large number of passages, wondering if I had understood them correctly. There were some places that were just too wordy. I did like the story, however, and am interested in finding out what happens with the twins in future books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Biblophile | 1/2/2014

    " I liked this one once the story started moving along. A little slow to start and needs more development, but hopefully the upcoming next one will bring more depth to the characters and the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/28/2013

    " The first book in a new trilogy about twins with special sight. Good for people who like things a little mysterious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/23/2013

    " Mally and Merry are special. Mally can see the future, and Merry can see the past. When strange things begin happening in Ridgetown, only they know what is going on, and only they can stop it. This book was OK, but it was somewhat freaky in parts. A good book, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linnja (Lynn) | 11/20/2013

    " Read again prior to Look Both Ways. Enjoyable "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meg | 11/19/2013

    " I usually am a big fan of JM's books, however, this one was not as good as some of the others I have read. I am not sure it this was to be a young adult book or she just decieded to write from a 13 year old girls perspective, but it did not work for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 jake4evs | 11/18/2013

    " its pretty good so far. so-so "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayla | 11/16/2013

    " I love books about twins so this ones a five star-er for me "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mickey | 10/29/2013

    " After the book got going, I couldn't put it down. However, the first few chapters were boring and really confusing. I found myself really having to think about what I was reading instead of just enjoying the storyline. Still, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noor | 6/8/2013

    " this book has increased my desire of having a twin more than it already was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Riley | 5/15/2013

    " Cute book, the twins are lovable and their neighbors are adorable. I enjoyed it and found it amusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorraine Stinson | 4/15/2013

    " I liked this psychological suspense novel. Plot kept me reading & twin characters were interesting and not stereotypical. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eden | 2/22/2013

    " kinda lost interest. confusing, slow paced, and not terribly original. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 11/26/2012

    " It is a good boook about twin sisters that go through many challanges, and try to keep each other safe. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurel | 9/4/2012

    " Listened to this on CD - not a favorite story of hers. Found it rather slow. Seemed like the plot focus completely changed part way through the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 8/5/2012

    " Not sure what I was expecting. Picked it up to fill a task for the seasonal challenge. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gaurett | 7/27/2012

    " I really liked this YA series. It is about a set of identical twins who have special powers. One sees into the future and the other sees into the past. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicky | 10/5/2011

    " It was kind of confusing and I was kind of lost whenever someone started talking. I don't know if i just didn't pay enough attention or what, but like I said I was confused. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ticia | 6/10/2011

    " I'll admit. I only made it to about page 66. The storyline was OK... A little slow for my liking. I was also not a fan of the writing style the author chose to use in writing this book. I have read other books by Ms. Mitchard, and loved them, but I just didn't "dig" this particular novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 4/1/2011

    " It is a good boook about twin sisters that go through many challanges, and try to keep each other safe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 2/8/2011

    " Really good. Had read her book Deep End of the Ocean and enjoyed that one too. This book wasn't exactly what I thought, but good none-the-less! I am hoping to find more of her books! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicky | 2/5/2011

    " It was kind of confusing and I was kind of lost whenever someone started talking. I don't know if i just didn't pay enough attention or what, but like I said I was confused. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DW | 1/20/2011

    " It was all right. Story was interesting, but got kind of sentimental and hokey at the end. But that's YA for ya :)

    (see also the comment I posted midway through) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bethany | 9/30/2010

    " The only thing I can really say about this book that it was probably not one of the best I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 9/21/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina | 8/14/2010

    " I gave this 4 stars because I am also a twin, and I understood how close that the Brynn sisters were. I am a fraternal twin, and we are the same age as Mallory and Meredith. "
