Twin sisters starting a new school find themselves growing apart in their interests, and face a crisis when they end up competing against each other for a place on the student council.
Maureen and Francine Carter are twins and best friends. They participate in the same clubs, enjoy the same foods and are partners
on all their school projects. But just before the girls start sixth grade, Francine becomes Fran - a girl who wants to join the chorus, run for class president and dress in fashionable outfits that set her apart from Maureen. A girl who seems happy to share only two classes with her sister!
Maureen and Francine are growing apart and there's nothing
Maureen can do to stop it. Are sisters really forever? Or will
middle school change things for good?
NOTE : Uses US spellings and slang throughout. Some aspects may seem strange to UK readers, especially the presence of military staff in a mainstream school, who are giving middle school age children classes intended to prepare them for military service.
