Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew Up… fatherless in Kensington, a picturesque neighborhood in London, England. She grew up with her mother, a famous designer of wedding gowns, her grandfather, and their family butler, Martin. 

Visiting… Camp Walden, a sleepaway summer program for girls in Maine, where she happens to cross paths with her long-lost identical twin sister, Hallie. The two get into a vicious pranking war until they're forced to cohabitate in the Isolation Cabin. 

Living… in California, where she is pretending to be her twin sister, Hallie, in order to get to know her father.

Interests… poker, oreos with peanut butter, and fencing. Annie loves her mom, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t always wondered what it would be like to live with her dad. So when she and Hallie realize they have the chance to switch places, they devote all of their time to learning about each other. Annie has to pretend to have the same interests as Hallie to keep up the disguise. 

Relationship Status… boys? She hasn’t even gotten her twelve-year-old molars yet!

Challenge… finding a way to get her parents back together so she doesn’t have to be separated from her sister and father anymore. This includes making sure her dad doesn’t get remarried to a much younger (and evil) woman first.

Personality… polite, anxious, and clever. While her sister tends to be the one to instigate their mischief, Annie is the one who takes cares of the details. She does have a bit of a haughty streak from her high-class upbringing, though. When she gets mad at Hallie, she says the true differences between them are “let me see... I know how to fence and you don't... Or I have class and you don't. Take your pick.”
