In Wilmette, Illinois, Highcrest Middle School can claim the title of the most sets of twins — two dozen of them — in a single grade. Most of the twins are fraternal. The breakdown: three sets of boy-boy twins, 11 sets of girl-girl twins and 10 sets of boy-girl twins. The two sets of identical twins are girls. Another fun fact: In two of the pairings are twins who bridged the midnight hour and were born on different days. (AP)
