The Trouble With Twins

by Kathryn Siebel

Roald Dahl meets Lemony Snicket in this darkly comic novel about two sisters who learn they are each others’ most important friend.

Henrietta and Arabella are twins. They’re nearly identical except that they are very, very different. Still, they’ve always been best of friends. Until Henrietta makes a big mistake–at Arabella’s expense.

Almost before they know what is happening, Henrietta is banished to another town and the home of her eccentric great aunt Priscilla. And that’s not a very pleasant place to be…unless you like fish eyeball soup, black cats, and lots and lots of chores. Despite everything, the girls are lost without each other. And so Arabella sets out on an unexpected journey to find her other half.

Missing Arabella is an adventure and a comedy–and a story about the bond between sisters…and how sometimes a little bit of mischief is the only way to set things right.
