Persephone Pinchgut is back to tell YOU more about her exciting life and adventures. Get up-close and personal with twin Perse in her fabulous NEW diary.

Portia, Perse’s beloved twin sister, is determined to become the next TOP MODEL. Persephone thinks Portia is delusional and that she should put her energy elsewhere. Perse then has to spend hours on the couch at the Heavenly Models Agency writing in her diary, rolling her eyes and sneezing from the toxic fumes of hairspray, perfume, and makeup.

When Portia is asked to be in an ad on TV with Perse’s favorite actress, Taylor North, Perse feels completely miserable. But is Taylor North as amazing as Perse thought? And what happens when your identical twin can’t model because she falls into a creek and twists her ankle?!

Follow the next hilarious Totally Twins adventure as Perse pens all her deepest secrets about popularity, fitting in, and lots more for you to read about.

Kirkus Reviews

“. . . Persephone’s independent, arty mother, her nontraditional family, and her twin insight make [the story] appealing, particularly for reluctant readers . . . A light romp through twinship and friendship.”—Kirkus Reviews
