The Grammarians by Cathleen Schine 258 pages

Daphne and Laurel Wolfe are identical twins with bright red hair.  They are as close as any two people can be.  They are best friends, they have a secret language that only they understand and are intrigued and passionate about the English language.  Cathleen Schine describes Laurel and Daphne’s lives from childhood to middle age.  Along the way, she introduces us to their husbands, children, parents and other relatives and employers.  Most of them are as interesting, bright and quirky as the twins.

If you love taking apart words and thinking about the complexities of our language, The Grammarians will charm you.  Schine writes a good story, and it’s easy to read with engaging characters.
