Runaway Twin

Runaway TwinRunaway Twin by Peg Kehret

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

It was okay. I concluded it wasn't appropriate as a readaloud for grades 4-5 thanks to input from my sixth grade daughter and the age of the protagonist (13) who is running away from a foster home. I did not feel compelled to finish it just for fun. (So many books, so little time.)

The child's reaction was, "Why are you reading THAT?" when she saw it on our library book shelf. She then reminded me how much she had disliked it, especially the ending, and I remembered how much she griped about it at the time she read it.
