I've noted before how the characters in teen novels tend to have certain hobbies. They are often talented musicians and artists with a penchant for Converse shoes. Another character type that occurs far more often in novels than in reality is twins. A high percentage of novels have twins or other multiples involved in some way: the protagonist's siblings, friends, neighbors. Fictional worlds are overrun with multiples. Here are six books published in the last six months that include twins or other multiples.
6 new books that include twins:
1. All Things New by Lauren Miller
2. Gian Pumpkin Suite by Melanie Heuiser Hill
3. Satellite by Nick Lake
4. The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street by Karina Yen Glaser
5. Rules of Rain by Leah Scheier
6. Flower Moon by Gina Linko
