Description-

  • A fresh, uproariously funny middle grade novel about an all-out war between two very creative twin siblings

    This brand-new series by popular screenwriter Geoff Rodkey is a pitch-perfect, contemporary comedy featuring Claudia and Reese, twelve-year-old fraternal twins 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 really worth the price.

    Told as a colorful "oral history" by the twins and their friends, The Tapper Twins Go to War (with Each Other) is a hilariously authentic showcase of what it's like to be in middle school in our digitally-saturated world.

About the Author-

    Starred review from February 2, 2015
    Even the trigger for this “war” between two New York City twins is up for debate, because 12-year-olds Claudia and Reese Tapper can’t agree on anything. But after Reese accuses Claudia of farting in the crowded sixth-grade cafeteria for all to hear, including Claudia’s (shh, don’t tell) crush, she is out for revenge. After a few amusing false starts, such as hiding a dead fish in Reese’s backpack (he doesn’t really notice the smell), Claudia realizes that she needs to hit Reese where it hurts: the empire he’s built in his beloved, Minecraft-esque online game. Constructed through photos, text messages, interviews transcripts, screenshots, and more, the book is conceived as an oral history, and the documentary format allows the Tapper twins, their parents, friends, and private-school setting to spring to life. Rodkey (the Chronicles of Egg series) clearly knows his audience, as well as the love that (usually) hides underneath sibling warfare. The clear-cut winners are readers of this uproarious series opener, which is packed with both laugh-out-loud moments and heart. Ages 8–12. Agent: Josh Getzler, Hannigan Salky Getzler.

  • AudioFile Magazine A full-cast narration brings together the wild and crazy war between twins Claudia and Reese in this start to a new middle-grade series. Recounting the story as an oral history, Claudia uses text messages, recordings, interviews, and more to explain why she went to war with her brother. Offering a full cast to narrate truly gives the audiobook the sound of oral history as well as creating the opportunity to give each character a well-rounded and hilarious reading. From Claudia's insistence that the war has nothing to do with the cute new exchange student to Reese's obsession with his online video game world, each narrator makes his or her character stand out. The full cast also works well in narrating the text messages and notes from parents. A delightful listen is made even more so by a stellar cast. S.B.T.
