My Twin Sister and Me: A Scout Always Does Her Best by Emiliya Ahmadova revolves around twelve-year-old twins Rafaela and Julieta, who live with their parents and fifteen-year-old sister, Karla. Julieta is concerned over the freckles on her face and she finds them ugly. Valeria, her classmate, is a bully and calls her ‘Leopard Face’. Julieta stands up for her friend, Montana, against Claudius when she is bullied. Julieta keeps wondering why people do not appreciate inner beauty but instead get carried away by appearances and clothes. As the book progresses, readers see how Julieta saves her Uncle Diego and how readers are introduced to scouting through their scouting program in Russia to participate in the World Scout Jamboree.
Apart from introducing readers to scouting, the story also speaks about good values, morals, ethics, kindness, family love, and friendship. It also handles the topic of bullying effectively. The story also shows how the girls handle a crisis, their fears, and how to deal with bullying in school. It is a good book for children as it teaches them good values and can be used at home and in classrooms to help kids understand about good values and ethics. All the characters in the story have been portrayed well to make them look real and relatable. Whether it is classroom bullying or saving Uncle Diego or the scouting trip to Russia, the story has a lot to offer young readers in terms of morals and messages. This book is inspiring and will give hope to readers.
