Belle Payton

Belle Payton isn’t a twin herself, but she does have twin brothers! She spent much of her childhood in the bleachers reading --- er, cheering them on --- at their football games. Though she left the South long ago to become a children’s book editor in New York City, Belle still drinks approximately a gallon of sweet tea a week and loves treating her friends to her famous homemade mac-and-cheese. Belle is the author of many books for children and tweens, and is currently having a blast writing two sides to each It Takes Two story.

They’ve got a plan to make it through: stick together! Because even though Alex and Ava are total opposites, they’ve always stuck together. But then Ava cuts her hair short, and Alex fears that Ava wants a new town to mean a new start --- as an individual.
