With my eyes closed and Alex's core friends all around me, it was like I'd become my big sister, or something just as good. And so who cared if they were calling it Alex's party? One thing I knew: it would be remembered as mine.

Alex has it all—brains, beauty, popularity, and a dangerously hot boyfriend. Her little sister Thea wants it all, and she's stepped up her game to get it. Even if it means spinning the truth to win the attention she deserves. Even if it means uncovering a shocking secret her older sister never wanted to share. Even if it means crying wolf.

Told in the alternating voices of Alex and Thea, Adele Griffin's mesmerizing new novel is the story of a sibling rivalry on speed.

From the Hardcover edition.

A special four-in-one edition of bestselling author Adele Griffin’s funny Witch Twins fantasy series
In Witch Twins, though identical on the outside, ten-year-old twins Claire and Luna Bundkin are as different on the inside as peaches and peanut butter. Claire is mischievous and Luna is a dreamer, but they do share a favorite hobby: witchcraft. Whether it’s making breakfast or washing dishes, there’s nothing a five-star witch can’t accomplish with a wave of her pinkie finger. When Claire and Luna’s father announces that he’s getting remarried, the twins know they need to do something to stop the wedding. A spell might be the only way to save their dad, and they’ll try anything. Even if magic usually lands them in a pot of trouble.
In Witch Twins and Melody Malady, Claire Bundkin has been Melody Malady’s most devoted fan ever since the singing sensation was selling Sudsy Perfect Shampoo on TV. When Claire gets a chance to meet Melody, she just about does a flip. And when Melody offers her a part in her upcoming movie, Claire knows her life is about to change forever. But Claire’s twin sister, Luna, isn’t quite as excited about Claire’s shot at the big time. It can get pretty ugly whenever sisters disagree, but for these witches-in-training, it may be downright dangerous.

In Witch Twins and the Ghost of Glenn Bly, Claire and Luna are thrilled when they find out their grandparents have been invited to an all-seniors golf tournament in Scotland, and they want the twins to come along. Claire and Luna can’t wait to set eyes on a real Scottish castle, with horses, armor, and tea at four o’clock. But this castle offers one amenity they weren’t expecting—a ghost!

And in Witch Twins at Camp Bliss, Claire cannot wait for five weeks in the sun at Camp Bliss, where she just knows she’s going to be crowned Camp Bliss Girl. But Luna is shy, awkward, and would rather spend the summer at home with her cats. To improve Luna’s attitude, the twins’ grandmother slips her a vial of thrice-distilled Marigold Zest, a pinch of which can make even the most reluctant spellcaster hungry for adventure. But when the vial disappears their first week at camp, and strange things start happening, Claire and Luna will have to stop the mischief maker—without breaking their promise to leave the spells at home!
