The Trouble With Twins
“Kate DiCamillo meets Lemony Snicket in this darkly comic novel about two sisters who learn they are each others' most important friend."
Imagine two twin sisters, Arabella and Henrietta—nearly identical yet with nothing in common. They’re the best of friends . . . until one day they aren’t. Plain and quiet Henrietta has a secret plan to settle the score, and she does something outrageous and she can’t take it back.
The Trouble with Twins is an adventure and a comedy—a tale of the power of unlikely friendships, the bond between sisters . . . and the way a bit of mischief sometimes sets everything right.

“Even readers without twins will identify with the universal truths of being a sibling.” -Kirkus
“. . . clever, warmhearted . . . eccentric adventure. Gory-esque spot illustrations capitalize on the story’s gothic atmosphere, a promising debut for Siebel.” Publisher's Weekly
“With an abundance of quirky characters and plotline that call to mind Roald Dahl or Lemony Snicket, this first novel offers a gently mischievous exploration of both family ties and sibling rivalry.” -Booklist
