    At least as bad as the second in the trilogy, but laughably so (again, what IS the literary equivalent term for a camp movie??). Mitchard cannot write dialog that flows - every few sentences, I'd stumble over something that totally threw me out of the reading just to figure out what the heck she meant. Characters are forever having mood swings mid-sentence, and the twins sound exactly alike when speaking (considering how much is made of their different personalities and mirror-twin-differences, At least as bad as the second in the trilogy, but laughably so (again, what IS the literary equivalent term for a camp movie??). Mitchard cannot write dialog that flows - every few sentences, I'd stumble over something that totally threw me out of the reading just to figure out what the heck she meant. Characters are forever having mood swings mid-sentence, and the twins sound exactly alike when speaking (considering how much is made of their different personalities and mirror-twin-differences, this isn't a small thing). And a LOT of the novel is dialog. Even the adults, at the rare times they show up, talk in that "it's so nice to see you, have a seat, I HATE YOU HATE YOU YOU STINK would you like some tea?" mood swingy way. Even when not stumbling through the dialog, I really wondered at times if the middle of some sentences were accidentally erased and just no one noticed or cared enough to try to put them back together. Any decent book about the intersection of the supernatural with human characters will have at least a FEW moments where someone says "no way, that can't happen!" or at least have serious doubts. It helps the reader suspend their own disbelief. Yet, no one blinked a single eye over the lead character falling in love with someone no one else could see. I mean, they went to movies together and no one thought it was odd she paid for two tickets?? (Just one example.) Having discovered she's talking about a cute boy no one else can see, her friends... do absolutely nothing and never mention it again. I will give it this - the resolution at the end, telling much of each of the characters futures, flowed nicely. Or maybe I was just so relieved it was over, anything sounded good!

    i adore the book as well as the characters but in the end the author ends the book with information that is kind of sad because she puts characters together that have never been interested in each other together and those who seem should be together are not an little information is given about them. but over all it was a great series

    I have never read Jacquelyn Mitchard before, even though I know several people who love her books. If this book is an example of her writing, I can't understand why anyone would be so enthralled. The story sounded like it would be right up my alley, but the execution of the plot was terrible. Circular conversations between characters that simply repeated phrases without advancing the plot, long run-on sentences with numerous comma splices, and contrived behavior from characters that seemed so un I have never read Jacquelyn Mitchard before, even though I know several people who love her books.

Circular conversations between characters that simply repeated phrases without advancing the plot, long run-on sentences with numerous comma splices, and contrived behavior from characters that seemed so unrealistic were just some of the problems. The "twin language" the twins used felt gratuitous, too. It was a good idea, but Mitchard is no linguist--the twins' secret language just seemed like random gibberish phrases with no relation to each other. I should add that I listened to the unabridged audiobook. The reader was good, but she couldn't overcome the relentless inanity of the story. I will not be in a rush to read another Mitchard book.

    Aaaah, all these good trilogies are leaving me. WHY MUST YOU END? WHY? Okay, bookworm-emotional-attachment problems aside, holy cow, Watch for Me by Moonlight. Where do I begin? I normally would've given it a three stars, but since it's the final installment (sob) in a series I've truly enjoyed, I'll cut it some slack.

Meredith has always been able to see into the past, so, it makes sense for her to be Aaaah, all these good trilogies are leaving me. WHY MUST YOU END? WHY? Okay, bookworm-emotional-attachment problems aside, holy cow, Watch for Me by Moonlight. Where do I begin? I normally would've given it a three stars, but since it's the final installment (sob) in a series I've truly enjoyed, I'll cut it some slack. In the Brynn twins' latest supernatural adventure, ghosts and spirits from beyond the dead arrive. Meredith has always been able to see into the past, so, it makes sense for her to be able to see, ghosts, spirits, stuff of the deceased from the PAST. When Mitchard brought that up, it was one of that moments where a reader goes, "Ohhhhh!" and beams because they hadn't thought of it themselves. And basically, Merry meets ghost with tragic past and good hair, they fall madly in love, but Merry realizes she can't be with him for obvious reasons, and eventually has to let him go. There's a lot of visions and supernatural stuff and a shady nurse along the way. So yes, a girl falling in love with a guy already dead (or the other way around) is a kinda cliche story. We've read it before. So maybe that wasn't the best plot to make this book about but whateves, let Mitchard do what she wants. The best part about this book in my opinion, (and of the entire trilogy) isn't the magical-psychic power stuff. No, it's the relationships between characters. Finally! There are actually parents that are active in their childrens' lives! And a nice normal boy! Not a bad boy, not some angel-vampire boy, not one who has way too many smooth words, but a nice. Normal. Guy. With hilarious lines. An amazingly flexible pizza job. And amazing patience for having to be the taxi driver every single time the Brynns need to go off and save their city again. I'm talking about Drew of course. The Mally-Drew relationship is so sweet, and cute, and such a breath of fresh air from other relationships in most other YA books. They're not the most perfect couple, they're certainly not forbidden to love each other either, they're just neighbors. Buds. Friends. And the parents-to-children relationship. THE BEST. I absolutely adore Campbell, and love how Mitchard balanced her sarcasm/wit toward her girls with that motherly instinct and love. And Ben and his mother. So sweet, so touching. Who wasn't getting a little misty-eyed as Ben gave his farewell speech (through Merry) to his mother, while she lay dying in the hospital? But he urged her to go one, she still has a life to live, and they'll meet again in the life afterward. "But not too soon, Ma, not to soon." So touching. I do feel like the ending was a bit rushed, as Mitchard probably realized that she had to wrap-up this series in the final 50 pages (after 200 pages of Ben and Merry love). She even did the one thing that authors should be absolutely FORBIDDEN to do. That is, simply THROW at the readers what happens to their characters in the future. Oh Merry becomes a soccer mom. She marries Drew. Mally becomes famous and fabulously wealthy. She has another line of Brynn twins. Wait, WHAT? (Sorry for the spoilers, by the way). And also, the romance. Girl and ghost, and the whole thing, it was just so cheesy, so overdone, and so unlike Merry to fall head-over-heels for this guy in a WEEK. And the whole part where she actually considered for a second to kill herself to be with Ben... I applauded Mally when she confronted her and was like, "WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU? IF YOU'RE ACTUALLY THINKING THAT, THIS RELATIONSHIP HAS TO END. NOW." Because that was one of the stupidest things a female YA heroine has ever considered doing. And I don't care that Merry actually didn't go through with it (thank goodness), because the fact that she even THOUGHT about it, that Ben even maybe ENCOURAGED it a little, was so utterly facepalm worthy and irritating. And Ben. Shady guy. Or ghost. I never liked him. But still, the trilogy is over, and it's been a trilogy that I've mostly liked. I loved how Mitchard tied in the whole "Highwayman" poetry thing, even with the title! And there are some choppy bits that don't flow the best, but eh, we should be used to that by now from this trilogy. If you weren't on board with the Midnight Twins, you really really won't like this book. Watch for Me by Moonlight is definitely one only for the ones who truly like this series. 4 stars. Satisfying ending to a good series. It wasn't amazing or anything. But the series overall has been GOOD.

    To be honest, I found this book kind of... disappointing, boring, dull, annoying... I don't know. I read the first two Midnight Twins books in the spring, and I know that they weren't fantastic, but I don't remember being ANNOYED by them. There are two reasons mainly that I disliked this book, and they are the same two reasons that I usually have for disliking a book: a) the writing style, and b) the romance. a)Sometimes I don't like a narrative style and I can't really explain why. I know that To be honest, I found this book kind of... disappointing, boring, dull, annoying... I don't know. I read the first two Midnight Twins books in the spring, and I know that they weren't fantastic, but I don't remember being ANNOYED by them. There are two reasons mainly that I disliked this book, and they are the same two reasons that I usually have for disliking a book: a) the writing style, and b) the romance. a)Sometimes I don't like a narrative style and I can't really explain why. I know that this writing style seemed really sporadic and not thought through. There are a lot of dialogue sequences where the characters seem to be having separate conversations, but still trying to talk to each other--that probably makes no sense. And maybe it's purposeful, I don't know. All I know is that I found it incredibly distracting. Also there were a lot a lame-sounding/cliché sentences in the narrative. The other thing with regards to writing/format is that the book took too long to end. The wrapping-up took place in the third last chapter, and then for the last two chapters I just kept flipping forward to check how much there was left, thinking, "Another chapter? Really?" Somehow I don't think that should happen when you're reading. b)So everyone who's read my reviews knows that I don't like romance unless it is a minor sideline of the story, and sometimes not even then. So why did I pick this book up when the title, let alone the synopsis, screams "ROMANCE!! <3<3<3"? Honestly, I picked it up because my library didn't have any of the other books I KNEW I wanted to read, and I was in too much of a hurry to look for something good, so I picked this up because I had read the first two and I figured I'd give it a chance. I wouldn't have minded the book actually if the romance was cut out of it. It's just.. even that has probably been used a million times before: Girl falls in love with ghost, has to decide between life and death, etc. The other events in the story, which I found much more interesting, were kind of like a side plot. But I think this book just had a lot less plot in general than the first two did. I'm not going to tell people NOT to read this book, like I do with Twilight (just kidding, I don't actually tell people not to read Twilight, but I rejoice when I hear people say they don't like it). You can read it if you want--hey, maybe you like romance, and maybe the writing style won't bother you. Maybe I'm just really picky with what kind of books I like, who knows. So look at this review as purely my opinion (all my reviews are purely opinion... wow I'm not really making sense today). I realized a few minutes ago, I think one of the things I liked the least about this book was that, combined, a) and b) caused me to get distracted enough that I couldn't get lost in the story at all. I absolutely LOVE when books can carry me out of reality for pages at a time--I don't think that happened even once with this book. So that's my petty complaint: "This book isn't captivating enough!" And with that... I think I'm done. Sorry for being so critical (okay, not really, I kind of like being critical of books I don't like), and hopefully the next book I read will inspire a much more inspiring review. Yes I know I just used the same word twice in one sentence. It's amusing. Okay I'm actually done now. :P

    This series has a great concept but this book, #3 of the trilogy, was so agonizingly s-l-o-w. Also, there are multiple typos and also mistakes in the content of the story itself.

I also could never remember which twin was which and had to keep flipping back to remember what we were talking about. The story concept: Meredith and Mallory, the identical "Midnight Twins", were born on either side of midnight in different years. Also, common in the Brynn family, is the fact that the girls in each generation are somewhat psychic. In the case of Merry and Mally, the one born before midnight can see flashes of things that happened in the past and the one born after midnight can see flashes of the future. In this book, Merry meets a new boy but no one else seems to ever see him. She falls deeply in love with him, only to learn that he is a ghost. Also, their baby brother, who was sometimes described as a young infant still drinking formula and sometimes described as old enough to wave and do other things that a toddler would do, gets sick and the girls with their psychic abilities can see that someone is making him sick. Which of his many babysitters is it? Another thing that I didn't like was that the author got philosophical at the end and then told the reader what would happen to the family in the future. I would only read the first two books in this series if I found them very cheap at a used bookstore.

All things aside, all that's destined for them is anything but normal. Merry keeps on seeing an unfamiliar face around town, and a handsome boy at that. When they finally meet face to face, Meredith is instantly in love with Ben, a sweet, soft spoken boy who has just come home after a long while away. But here's the question, how long? After struggling to handle the truth, Merry must realize that Ben is actually a ghost that died over 40 years ago. Merry must learn how to deal with a relationship that was never meant to be.

Fans of the first two Midnight Twins books will love the last book in an amazung trilogy.

    Only for fans of the series. The book is very poorly edited, with the wrong names in places and a number of sentences that no longer make sense. Also, the twins' visions seem to further the plot rather than have any use. The story mentions that the visions have helped the twins stop bad things from happening, which is mostly true. Then again, you have one vision that simply exists as a red herring, which seems pretty foolish. I also didn't much like Grandma and the omniscient narrator seeing 35 Only for fans of the series.
