About this deal

In the beginning, we learn that a 'computer error' made it so that the girls aren't in all the same classes this year. Francine is thrilled with this, Maureen is nervous and upset. Maureen has also been enrolled in ROTC or whatever version of ROTC exists in this universe.

If we are to provide equal opportunities for all students, the school library fund must be universal’. Special guests include Disney’s ‘Artemis Fowl’ stars Ferdia Shaw (Artemis Fowl)and Lara McDonnell (Holly Short),actor and narrator of The Fowl Twins audiobooks, Nathaniel Parker, co-creator of the graphic novel series Andrew Donkin, composer Liam Bateswith an original Fowl Christmas song PLUS lots, lots more. After that, Maureen goes for president of student council, a position she KNOWS Francine is wanting and gunning for. Things devolve from there.The campaign was supported by the current Laureate na nÓg, Áine Ní Ghlinn and all of her five predecessors, Siobhán Parkinson, Niamh Sharkey, Eoin Colfer, P.J. Lynch and Sarah Crossan. It is the first time all six children’s laureates have united to support a campaign. Having a story about twins that isn’t about them being matchy or the same is one thing, but having one where they have real life challenges including fitting in, getting along with each other, struggling at something outside of your comfort zone, and more is a whole new level. This book wonderfully portrays those first few weeks of a new school level where you literally have idea how anything works and your teachers are constantly reminding you that “this isn’t [insert the elementary, middle, or high school you just left]” which isn’t really helpful cause YOU JUST GOT HERE, how could you know? A captivating and chilling story of sibling rivalry and sisterly bonds; of grief, trauma and identity. Both heart-racing and heart-wrenching.

Dench's Commander Root had another unlikely influence: Her look was inspired by none other than David Bowie, Continente confirmed. The twins either died from drugs, had seizures due to withdrawal, or entered into some unknowable suicide pact. Fellow doctors at the time proposed a kind of Columbo killer mystery method that involved injecting poisons into the body in places where you would never find it, like a hemorrhoid. "I will tell you something: any smart physician could dispose of himself by a mechanism which could never be discovered by anyone, including his insurance companies," one of the doctors cryptically explained. "I have no evidence, but I know the way I’d do it if I were going to... I can tell you this: you’re not gonna find out."The fairy officer Artemis kidnaps, Holly Short, is played by 16-year-old Irish actress Lara McDonnell. "Laura did a year of Matildaon the West End, so she had a bit more experience," producer Hofflund said of finding their Holly, an 84-year-old fairy who looks like a teenage girl. As a child the school library was my lifeline, my gateway to another world - a world of knowledge and imagination, of freedom and fun. Books changed my life and made me the person I am today. All children have the right to have access to this world, to the gift of reading for pleasure. All children have the right to see themselves, their lives and culture reflected in a book. We need to invest now in the future of our children. We need to give every child the right and opportunity to read. If we care about the future of our children we need to see the immediate reinstatement of the school library fund.’ Despite no credits to his name, newcomer Ferdia Shaw captivated the Artemis Fowlteam with his raw talent and landed the lead. "I kept seeing audition after audition after audition, and [Ferdia] just kept getting better and better and rising to the top of the list," Hofflund recalled, with Branagh adding, "First thing he's ever done and he's spectacular." One of the saddest, most heartbreaking accounts of two extraordinary, gifted identical twin females, June and Jennifer Gibbons, whose lives were compromised for one, and destroyed for another, by a shared and devastating mental illness. Despite a lot of conflict on a lot of fronts (not only sister vs. sister), no one in the book is a bad person. They all care about each other, but make mistakes and sometimes cause each other pain. I liked that everyone was basically a good person, though flawed. There are no 'bad guys' in this book.

Twins are usually stereotyped to be two halves to the same person - well not in this book. They are as different as chalk and cheese. In The Twins we follow twin sisters Margo and Cora and their turbulent relationship. Margo is experiencing memory loss and can’t remember parts of her childhood, particularly how her little sister Annie died when they were younger. Cora appears to be trying to stop Margo from remembering the truth. Complice probabilmente l’emarginazione sociale dovuta all’essere le uniche bambine nere dell’area, June e Jennifer arrivano a dirittura a creare una sorta di loro lingua, e a non rivolgere la parola a nessuno al di fuori l’una dell’altra: è così che si guadagnano il soprannome di “silent twins”. June: "All through my schooldays I often thought and confessed I was a boy. I got strange feeling I was a boy under all my female assets. It’s as though I’d been a boy first in my life."Something I found interesting is that June was maybe trans but the author and all involved act like the chest binding both did and June's feelings re: being male were just part of a Peter Pan desire to not grow up.
