Review: Do you like to read books about two earths? Well, then you'll like The Twinning Project by Robert Lipsyte. In the There are two main characters, Tom and Eddie. Tom gets in trouble a lot and he makes gadgets. Eddie is really good at sports, and unlike Tom he doesn't get into trouble.

The plot of The Twinning Project is that Tom and Eddie are twin brothers, but not on the same planet. Tom is living on Earth One, and Earth one is the original earth. On the other hand, Eddie is on Earth Two, the second earth. The only problem is that Eddie's earth is 50 years behind Tom's earth. That means that Eddie doesn't have the things Tom has and isn't familiar with the devices Tom has. They soon learn that there really is a planet two and one, so they switch places with each other. People called watchers are on both earths looking for Tom and Eddie. Read the book to find out what treacherous situations the boys face!

I really liked about the adventure in this book. Also, I enjoy the plot, two brothers on a different earth. Another feature that I like about the book is that Tom and Eddie are being chased by the watchers. The action component makes the book exciting. In my opinion, this book is 5 stars and two thumbs up!
