Review: The Twins Go to the Hospital (Sweet Valley Kids #20)

User Review  - S. - Goodreads

I always had a bit of a fondness for "going to the hospital" stories. I don't know why, considering I've never been to one myself except as a visitor! Perhaps it was the curiosity factor, since all these children in books seemed to always need their tonsils out or break limbs etc. Read full review
