It Takes Two is about two identical strangers who end up running into each other. The two young girls come from much different backgrounds. One is an orphan living in a home for kids, doing her best not to get adopted by some strange family. She wants to be adopted, but by her social worker, who has been there for her and made her feel like someone cares. The other girl is the daughter of a rich businessman, whose mother passed away when she was a baby. She is not at all pleased when she finds out her father is going to be remarried.

The children from the home that Amanda stays at end up taking a little vacation by going to Camp Callaway. Meanwhile, Alyssa is at her family's summer house, which happens to be right across the lake from the camp, which her mother once owned. Alyssa finds out about her father's engagement to a not-so-nice lady and ends up running away. Diane, Amanda's social worker, finds her and thinks she's Amanda. She asks her to come play football with the other kids and she does. At the same time, the real Amanda is with some friends near the Callaway house. The story says that the place is haunted, so her friends dare her to ring the doorbell. When she does, the butler, Vincenzo, grabs her and brings her inside, thinking she was the run-away Alyssa.

The girls both end up going back to their original places, and run into each other on the way. They find it amazing, and weird too, that they could be strangers yet look completely the same. After they get to talking, switching places is suggested, so that Amanda could scare away Alyssa's new mom-to-be, just like she's done with so many prospective parents of her own. On the day they are supposed to switch back, they leave their social worker and dad riding horses. The two end up meeting and have a connection.

From then on, the girls stay switched so that they can help Roger (Alyssa's dad) and Diane (Amanda's wanna-be mom) see each other again and fall in love.
