(From Goodreads)

Maggie and Marta Dugan are identical twins. Their relationship has the usual sisterly strains, until home alone one afternoon, Maggie masquerades as Marta when a friend of hers drops by. The ruse is quickly discovered, a rift between the sisters ensues, and they go their separate ways. But living apart is hard; real independence harder still. Will they come back together? How long until each realizes she needs the other to feel whole?


This book was such a fun insight into a pair of twins, trying to navigate New York together. I really don’t know why, but as I was reading this it kind of made me think of the whole Caroline Calloway situation, anyone else?

I had such a fun time reading this. Maggie and Marta are just hilarious characters, and their naive nature paired along with the fact that they’re super rich stepfather supports them make for a lot of laughs. Despite their shortcomings as functional adults, we do see them develop as individuals, which is really what they needed all along.

If you’re looking for a short, fun read then you have to check out Maggie’s Ruse!

Final Grade

4/5. I really enjoyed just sitting back and watching what would happen to these twin sisters. I wasn’t disappointed!
