K.K. Allen makes me want to relive my childhood and build a treehouse.  Up in the Treehouse is a coming of age novel that has romance, suspense, mystery, heartbreak, and is full of emotions. Even if you didn’t grow up with twin best friends, this novel is relatable. It reminds us of our own childhood and appreciate how honest K.K. Allen is in her writing style. She isn’t afraid to potray a real life story rather than only worrying about a fairytale or happy ending. And did we mention TWINS. You know what that means.. double trouble.
