What's Up With Jody Barton? By Hailey Long

Book Description- Me and my sister are twins. She's Jolene and I'm Jody. We've both got brown hair, we're both left-handed and we both have these weirdly long little toes which make us look like long-toed mutants. But apart from that, I'd say we're fairly different. Well, actually, we're a lot different . . . It's hard enough being one half of the world's least identical twins, without both of you falling for the same guy. Jolene's turned flirting into a fine art, but Jody? Not so much. And as if a twinny love triangle wasn't messy enough . . . there's something nobody knows about Jody Barton. Something BIG. Told with the trademark warmth and laugh-out-loud humour of the much-loved LOTTIE BIGGS books, this is a book that will make you think, with a gobsmacking twist you won't believe. 

Judgement-  Such a gripping book! I read it in one day because it was really hard to put down. I loved the characters, especially Jody and her family. There were some very funny moments and some very deep ideas, which any child would find valuable.

The way this book was written is 'awesome' - its not just some boring layout. It has pictures and writing of different sizes to reflect how it was spoken. I just wish that the book was longer and I would definately recommend it to anyone!

9/10
