Oh, Simon, that's right! Your perspective on twins is first-hand. And weren't those two a little extreme? Okay, a LOT extreme. I love the idea twins are close, but don't believe they need to be attached at the hip. Far too cutesy and affected, all of it. And Valentina... Ugh. Can't go further without ruining the plot. I mean more than the author did.

Oh, agreed. The premise was wonderful - but by the end it was just ridiculous. And a really awful depiction of twins (one of them even complained about getting confused with her sister - well, love, then DON'T WEAR THE SAME CLOTHES!)
