Summary
This bestselling first book in the Tapper Twins series is a hilariously authentic showcase of what it's like to be in middle school in our digitally-saturated world, told as a colorful "oral history" with photos, screenshots, text messages, chat logs, and online gaming digital art.

Twelve-year-old twins, Claudia and Reese, who couldn't be more different...except in their determination to come out on top in a vicious prank war. But when the competition escalates into an all-out battle that's fought from the cafeteria of their New York City private school all the way to the fictional universe of an online video game, the twins have to decide if their efforts to destroy each other are worth the price. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly declared "This uproarious series opener... is packed with both laugh-out-loud moments and heart."

Don't miss the further adventures of the Tapper Twins in The Tapper Twins Tear Up New York , The Tapper Twins Run for President , and The Tapper Twins Go Viral .
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "It started with words. Or maybe with the missing toaster pastry. But when Reese Tapper called his twin sister, Claudia, Princess Farts-a-Lot in front of the whole sixth grade, the war was on. Through oral-history interviews, text messages, e-mails, chat-room comments, photographs, and margin notes, Claudia documents the history of the Tapper twins' war. The twins live in a New York City apartment, their busy parents come across as somewhat clueless, and their after-school sitter is not effective in the substitute parenting department. The escalation from a rotting fish in Reese's book bag to social catastrophe and digital annihilation is inexorable and quite believable. Entertained readers may just get the message, with Claudia concluding, There are definitely a lot of very important lessons to be learned from The War. Indeed, she discovers that war messes with your head, and she ends up regretting the whole thing. Thanks to the inclusion of various points of view, Claudia's reasonably balanced narrative offers plenty of humorous insight, and occasional doodles and photos keep it peppy.--Isaacs, Kathleen Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Even the trigger for this "war" between two New York City twins is up for debate, because 12-year-olds Claudia and Reese Tapper can't agree on anything. But after Reese accuses Claudia of farting in the crowded sixth-grade cafeteria for all to hear, including Claudia's (shh, don't tell) crush, she is out for revenge. After a few amusing false starts, such as hiding a dead fish in Reese's backpack (he doesn't really notice the smell), Claudia realizes that she needs to hit Reese where it hurts: the empire he's built in his beloved, Minecraft-esque online game. Constructed through photos, text messages, interviews transcripts, screenshots, and more, the book is conceived as an oral history, and the documentary format allows the Tapper twins, their parents, friends, and private-school setting to spring to life. Rodkey (the Chronicles of Egg series) clearly knows his audience, as well as the love that (usually) hides underneath sibling warfare. The clear-cut winners are readers of this uproarious series opener, which is packed with both laugh-out-loud moments and heart. Ages 8-12. Agent: Josh Getzler, Hannigan Salky Getzler.
