This week's teaser:
Hector and Lila, the twin brother and sister High Scores— each quite obviously intelligent, but both possessing that sort of know-everything-teacher’s-pet quality that Charley had already fast found annoying in the classroom earlier— said at almost the same time, “It’s an animal combination.”
Everyone looked in their direction, and Hector spoke again. “Kind of like a mutation, but cooler.” “Because they can reproduce after their own kind,” Lila added.
“Usually, anyway,” said Hector.
“Sometimes weird stuff happens. Or, weirder stuff happens, I should say,” said Lila. “And how exactly do you know so much about animal combinations?” asked Sandy.
Charley was wondering the same thing. Not for the first time today, he also wondered just how much he could trust the twins.
“Easy,” said Lila. “We read. A lot.”
“And ask questions,” said Hector.
Hector and Lila remind me of Wiress and Beetee from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The way they are twins, and supersmart, always getting the short end of the stick when it comes to friends. Also, they stick together with the main protagonist, and the main protagonist has to decide whether to trust them. It's pretty interesting to read and imagine what they are going through.
