The Grayson twins are moving to a new town. Again. Although it's a drag to be constantly mistaken for one another, still, during those first days at a new school, there's nothing better than a twin brother. But on day one of sixth grade, Ray stays home sick, and Jay is on his own. And--no big deal. It's a pretty nice school, good kids too. But Jay quickly discovers a major mistake; no one at this school 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 a teacher, but decides that this lost information could be very...useful. And fun. Maybe even a little dangerous. As these two clever boys exploit a clerical oversight, each one finds new views of selfhood, friendship, learning, and honesty. Entertaining and thought-provoking, this is Andrew Clements at his best. Download and start listening now!

    AudioFile

  • “Combining his insight into the minds of middle-grade boys with his experience as the father of twins, Clements creates a thoroughly engaging and usually convincing chapter book. There’s built-in appeal for twins, but singletons will like it too.” 

    Booklist

  • “Clements…shows a strong understanding of the experience of being a twin…Readers will quickly turn the pages to find out what the boys are up to next and whether they will be caught…a treat for those who are into the author’s brand of ‘that could totally happen at my school’ fiction.” 

    School Library Journal

  • “Another fast-paced, believable and funny offering from a master of school stories.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catharina | 2/18/2014

    " I think this book is good for friends who are twins because this book shows how twins feel. So, they do something when they go to school. Finally, they can be a honest students. I think this book is really fun and good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 2/15/2014

    " This book is pretty interesting, just like all those mystery-ish books by Andrew Clements. However, it's a little bit too short and the solution was a little too fast. Otherwise...pretty good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 T. Scott | 2/13/2014

    " This was another good carpool audiobook by Clements. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clem | 2/11/2014

    " pretty good, fun, twin boys pretend to be one person so they don't have to go to school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily A. | 1/23/2014

    " This book was great but it was a little bit slow paced- that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it. This book is about two twin boys who discover that, if they be careful, they can each attend to school 2 or 3 days a week and can be one person instead of twins. I liked this book because it really gave me a new perspective on twins. I used to think they were, well, identical people. I thought that they had the same favorite color, favorite food, and even t- shirt. And now I see that they can be two totally different people who have different minds and bodies. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for, well, a good book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Euroca | 1/22/2014

    " I really like Andrew Clements. I thought this book was a bit hard to follow, but all in all it had a good message. It was not a favorite book from this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Hilton | 12/31/2013

    " Good book for 7-12 year olds, fun plot--If Matthew had a twin, I wouldn't put this past him! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daria | 11/30/2013

    " I love Clements but this book did not grab me. The kids might like the twin switch but I did not find the story engaging. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 11/21/2013

    " This book is very good and a great book to read. It is about two twins that switch of times going to school because for some reason one of them wasn't signed up for school so they take turns going to school... you will have to read more to find out "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 6/13/2013

    " I listened to the book on CD and it was awesome. I liked how Clements really gave his characters voice and dealt with the issue of what it feels like to be a twin. I also liked how he made the twins the smart ones and how they tricked their school and parents. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsay | 5/23/2013

    " A solid middle grade story with twin hijinks. It waxes a little moralistic in the end for my taste and some of the scenarios were a tad difficult to follow. Not the most memorable Clements tale, but there's definitely a reader for this brand of school fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janeene | 4/25/2013

    " We got this book on CD to listen on the way two and from school. My kids really got into the story. I would probably consider reading other books by the same author. "

    " Amusing, but not as good as author's other works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Autumn Thetford | 2/2/2012

    " maybe being twins wouldn't be so great everyday. But, it is a way to find out more about yourself and the differences and similarities you share with others. It's good to be who you are! It's especially best to tell the truth!!! "
