Our class read a book called Double Identity. Its about a girl named Bethany who's parents drop her off at her aunt named Myrlie that she didn't even know existed!The main characters are Bethany Elizabeth Joss and Myrlie.







I made a connection because Bethany is a swimmer and I used to do swimming lesson's.





I thought the book was good my favorite part was when they told us about Elizabeth. I liked the book

because it was a mystery story and I like mystery stories.







I would recommend this book if you like mystery stories because it is a good mystery story.

I think that animal testing is bad because they will die. I think that they shouldn't test animals they should let them live.
