When Olivia Abbott moves to town, she's excited to join the cheerleading team and make new friends. Then she meets Ivy Vega. At first, Ivy, pale and dressed all in black, looks like Olivia's opposite. Then the girls look beyond the glittery pink blush and thick black eyeliner to discover they're identical - identical twins!
Olivia and Ivy are brimming with plans to switch places and pull every twin trick in the book. But Olivia soon discovers that she and Ivy aren't exactly the same. Ivy's a vampire. And she's not the only one in town.

I loved it. I just fell into the story with Ivy and Olivia. Emily Bauer is an AMAZING narrator she doesn't stutter on words or mess up. And Sienna Mercer is an AMAZING authorm She can get anyone (and I mean anyone) to fall into her stories about Ivy and Olivia. Loved the first one and I am going on to try and get the rest of the series.
I'll admit it: I'm biased to find this book amusing. I have a twin sister who's really into vampires and wore all black in high school, and I was a varsity cheerleader all four years. I had to buy this book just for the parallels.
But it was super entertaining. The narrator really captured the tone of the writing, and it's intended teenage audience. And she did a great job making sure you knew who was talking, even as the twins kept switching places and trying to be each other.
It's a fun, feel-good listen if you're looking for something light and not terribly long.
