Looking for 80's Teen Book? - About Twin Girls who swap lives for awhile

Hey there, I am desperately searching for a book from the 80's to early 90's about twin girls who swap lives (without their parents’ permission) for the summer (I think).  One is sophisticated and lives in San Francisco and the other is more down to earth and lives rurally if I remember correctly.  Unfortunately I cannot remember the title or the names of the girls - but it is definitely not about the Sweet Valley High Twins or The Parent Trap.  Can anyone remember this book or any info on this book?

Are they redheads? The wealthier one has her hair toned and her mother notices just after the switch that she needs to tone "her daughter's" hair.  (Of course, it's not her daughter.)  The poorer twin clog dances and they meet at some sort of festival?

 

Of course none of this  helps because I can't remember author or title.  I can see the book cover; it might still be in my mother's attic.  She needs help with Christmas lights and my husband is going to do that this week.  Maybe I'll poke around in my books up there while he's out in the cold.  :smileysurprised:

Thanks very much for your offer of help - but amazingly I've found it!  It is called Mirror Mirror by Virginia Nielson.  Many thanks though and Merry Christmas :smileyhappy:

I think I also read Mirror Mirror, but I don't think that's the title of the book I was thinking of...

 

If I get to Mom's, I'm going up in the attic!
