Tally Jo and Tempest Trimble are mirror twins, so alike they were almost born the same person. Inseparable, but more than that. Connected.
That is, until this summer. The twins are traveling with Pa Charlie's carnival just like always, but there's a new distance between them. Tempest is so caught up in her own ideas, she doesn't seem to have space left in her life for Tally. And, more than that, Tally's started to notice there's something between them. Something real, growing with the phases of the moon, pushing them apart. Sparking, sputtering, wild. Dangerous.
With the full moon approaching, Tally knows it's up to her to find out what's going on—and to beat it. If she can't, she might just lose her sister. Forever.
For fans of Savvy and A Snicker of Magic, this is a spellbinding story of friendship and family—a poignant ode to both what's worth holding on to and what we have to let go.

    Gr 4-6-Tally Jo and Tempest, 13, are blonde identical twins who've been opposites most of their lives. Tally Jo is the leader and Tempest the follower. However, Tempest's growing interest in science and making gadgets begins to change their relationship, as does the weird power she seems able to exert on Tally Jo. This year the sisters are allowed to spend the summer without their parents at Pa Charlie's Peachtree Carnival, a small traveling show. Pa Charlie is their maternal grandfather; they are hoping to learn more about their mother's own absent twin sister. Tally Jo enjoys spending time with her friends at the carnival, especially buddy Digger, and enlists his help in solving the family mystery. The Georgia coast plays a role as the tides and summer storms add to the novel's suspense. Heartfelt moments of self-discovery are touching, but the unresolved issues of what is magic and what is science keep this from being a satisfyingly solved mystery. VERDICT A quirky read perfect for those fascinated by twins, but oddly disappointing in its resolution.-Carol A. Edwards, formerly at Denver Public Library

    Can mirror twins survive when forces begin to push them apart? It used to be "TallyandTempest. No spaces," for the two white Southern preteens. But with the end of sixth grade and their 13th birthday approaching, Tally's not only noticed that she and her sister have been drifting away from each other, but there's even a strange physical tension when they come near each other. Maybe it all started when Tempest became interested in scientific inventions and didn't need to rely on Tally as a leader anymore. Or maybe their circumstances are related to why their mother and her mirror twin, world traveler Aunt Grania, no longer see each other. Whatever the reason, "for creamed corn's sake," spunky Tally is determined to find out. Filled with food-inspired sayings, Tally's first-person narrative follows her mild adventures as she and Tempest spend their summer with their grandfather Pa Charlie's traveling carnival through rural Georgia. With the help of a boy who's the son of a carnival regular (and possibly Tally's first crush), the return of Aunt Grania, and Tempest's unusual inventions, Tally may solve the family mystery and stay connected to her twin without sacrificing their independence. An added tension between science and magic boosts interest and strengthens the theme. Even singleton readers will relate to the difficulties of growing up and growing apart. (Fiction. 8-12)
