Eve wants fourth grade to be different. She's decided this is the year she's going to make new friends. What she doesn't need is help from Amy and May, her twin sisters, who are just starting kindergarten. Then Eve learns her class is to be teamed up with the kindergartners in a buddy program. There's no getting away from the twin terrors!
The buddy program pairs one fourth grader with each kindergartner. You'd think the odds would be against Eve's being stuck with one of her sisters. Then again, you'd think the odds would be against the fourth graders and kindergartners having teachers who are sisters! Eve's sure having her twin sisters around in school will mean nothing but trouble -- but maybe a little trouble is just what she needs to shake up her life!
Elizabeth Levy lends her sure touch to a funny novel about family, friends, and what happens when you mix the two together.

She lives in New York City.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4-Levy's humorous touch is mild in this sequel to Big Trouble in Little Twinsville (HarperCollins, 2001). As Eve begins fourth grade, she has three goals: to shed her goody-two-shoes image, stop worrying so much, and make at least one new friend. When she gets to school, she finds that her teacher is the identical twin of the new kindergarten teacher and that the two women have planned a buddy project, which brings Eve in closer proximity to her annoying five-year-old twin sisters than she wants to be. Through this joint class project on mythology, she learns to appreciate Amy and May and gains a new friend in her classmate Adam. An indicator of the level of humor here is that the two friends' names become a pivotal joke. Still, this brief, easy-to-read chapter book will appeal to those who want the comfort of easy reading and will play to the mysterious fascination this age group has with all things twin.
