    One thought on “At Boarding School With the Tucker Twins”

    1. Nell Speed is one of my favourite US "girlsown" authors, and I rather think the Tucker Twins series is my favourite of her sets of books.Despite the name, the series isn't really about the Tucker twins (Caroline and Virginia, nicknamed Dum and Dee, collectively the Tweedles); it's about their friend, Page Allison (who is also the narrator).

Her two new besties (twins known as D [...]

    4. Some interesting points but not one to re-read.Typical of its genre but the girls do not ring true and the style is not as well-written as that of the "Katy" series of Susan Coolidge
