My 9 and 12 year olds loved it, both had read the first in the series. An adventure novel, the twins using their super powers provide comic relief.
This summary of book #1 may help those who are new to the series:
THE TWINNING PROJECT (2012): Tom is a smart, talented loner with a chip on his shoulder and a big secret: an imaginary twin on another planet. Eddie is Tom's opposite, a friendly, athletic kid who always looks on the good side. Tom worries sometimes: does confiding in Eddie mean he's nuts? The truth is even crazier than that. Eddie and his planet are just as real as Tom and his Earth, but fifty-some years in the past. And the twins are caught up in an alien master plan that might just mean Earth--both Earths--will be destroyed. Switching places and identities, "slipping" between planets and across decades, a desperate escape, and the unraveling of deeper secrets leave Tom and Eddie aware of the danger they're facing and the tools they can use to overcome it.
I read the entire book and thought it was good, not enough real definition for me. I don't think that missing the first book in the series was a hinderance. However, my grandson wants to read the first volume. He loved this storyline.
Tom and Eddie, are interesting young teens, they are half-alien. What boy would not want to be half alien? The really interesting aspect is that they live on two different planets. Tom lives on Earth of 2008, and Eddie lives on planet Earth of 1958. Eddie's Earth was created by the aliens. They need to save their fatter from a very bad man, Dr Traumatic. This is the story of their adventures. I felt the storyline went on too far and became boring for me, my grandson loved it. So, for this kind of story, I would go with my grandson. This is meant for him and his like minded friends. I liked the twin definition, and my grandson liked their half alien powers. We both liked the ending.

"The Twin Powers" does not stand alone because all of these plot devices feel like dangling threads. Sure, you can read it as its own book, but it'll feel like you're being pulled in several directions. Better start from the beginning.
