Christina and Lauren have always offered a light, entertaining stories. That is their flair. However, Twice in a Blue Moon is a different sort of animal.

The Honey-Don’t List is a helplessly romantic story with a super adorable male-protagonist. Oh my God, don’t get me wrong, I did love Carey, but James? Ugh, I loved loved loved him. I was delighted that he’s always straightforward about his feelings and well, it’s just that, in general, he’s such a lovable guy.

That morning, Claude shows up wearing something unmistakably a girl dress. He says that he wants to go to school in it. He seems sure of his wish, but Rosie is baffled. This is not the kind of things that you decide during rush hours like this. It’s something that you take time to think about. So Rosie tries the easy way first, she tells Claude to change.
