Maddie and Connor (the twins) in What Happened to Goodbye

Maddie and Connor (the twins)

Even though they're technically her siblings, Mclean doesn't have a very close relationship to the twins. They're so much younger than her, and they're also a reminder that her mom lied to them and had an affair with Peter Hamilton—only coming clean when she found out she was pregnant. Still, when Mclean goes with her mom to the beach house, she starts hanging out with the twins again and realizes that they're just little kids who want to be loved—it's not their fault that their family situation is all messed up.
