* *   Reviewed by Lyn Seippel

Identical twins Meredith and Mallory Brynn are back and so are their visions. Both have psychic abilities that go beyond their connection to one another. One sees the future and one sees the past.

Mallory is a serious jock and a bit of a loner with two good friends. Meredith is an outgoing cheerleader-type who's always on the phone or visiting with multiple friends. In the second book of The Midnight Twins trilogy, both girls realize that people close to them are in trouble.

Meredith's concerned that someone is trying to throw the cheerleading tryouts by using tricks dangerous enough to harm the competition. She's also worried about her friend Kim Jellico, whose brother died in the first book of the series. In her grief, Kim is hanging out with the wrong crowd, whose idea of partying means hanging out at the ravine, drinking and smoking.

Mallory's dream of a white mountain lion leads her to stumble onto truths that the Native American community prefers to keep hidden. Her friend Eden is a part of that community and Mallory tries to keep her safe as she faces her destiny as a shape shifter.

Adding American Indian folklore steps up the pace, taking Look Both Ways from a vanilla read into one that unfolds a string of surprising events. Mitchard allows both twins to grow. It's their uniqueness that makes them unstoppable when they join forces - and keeps the reader reading.
