Although it's a drag to be constantly mistaken for each other, in truth, during those first days at a new school, there's nothing better than having a twin brother there with you. But on day one of sixth grade, Ray stays home sick, and Jay is on his own. No big deal. It's a pretty nice school; good kids, too.
But Jay quickly discovers a major mistake: No one seems to know a thing about his brother. Ray's not on the attendance lists, doesn't have a locker, doesn't even have a student folder. Jay almost tells the school - almost - but then decides that this lost information could be very...useful. And fun.
As Ray and Jay exploit a clerical oversight, they each find new views on friendship, honesty, what it means to be a twin - and what it means to be yourself. Entertaining, thought-provoking, and true-to-life, this clever novel is classic Andrew Clements times two: twins!

I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
Twins are so different. I had not thought of being a twin in this fashion so the topic was quite new to me. Do most twins feel like they want to be their own person and it is annoying when everyone calls them by their sibling's name? Who knows! I found the book funny, silly, enjoyable, and short but captivating.
I giggled about the skinned knee and the chicken wings.
Yes, but I was able to listen in a relatively short period of time. It was fun.
Kids books are quite interesting. Their perspective is so different from the 9-5 rut most adults live in. Short, full of laughs and great to share is how I sum up the kids section on Audible.
