GL girls love It Takes Two...just read their reviews!

When twin sisters move to a new town—and immediately become the first family of football—they soon learn they’ll need to stick together…even if it means shining separately. Belle Payton’s It Takes Two: A Whole New Ball Game hits shelves today—but GL’s Buzz Babe book club scored this sporty story in advance. Read on for their reviews…and CLICK HERE to read an excerpt!

A whole new ball game
Just when twelve-year-old twins Alex and Ava thought life couldn’t get any more complicated, they get tossed into a whole new ball game.

The Sackett family just moved from to a tiny town in Texas so dad could coach the high school’s football team—but the overbearing heat isn’t all the girls must get used to. When Alex and Ava realize how much fame comes along with being the face of the football team, they must settle their differences and stick together for this new journey. But fitting in isn’t easy—can the twins stay on the same team, or does a new town mean a new start…as individuals?
