  • About The Book

Beloved Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli, author of Maniac Magee and Wringer, addresses issues of identity, belonging, family, and bullying in this humorous and heartfelt novel about twins.
Jake and Lily are twins. Despite their slightly different interests and temperaments, they feel exactly the same—like two halves of one person. But the year they turn eleven, everything changes. Their parents announce it’s time for separate bedrooms. Jake starts hanging out with a pack of boys on the block. And Lily is devastated, not to mention angry. Who is she without Jake? And as her brother falls under the influence of the neighborhood bully, he also must ask himself—who is the real Jake?

This is an often funny, poignant, and profound story of growing up, growing apart, and the difficult process of figuring out who you really are.

  • Intro
I'm Jake Wambold

I'm Lily Wambold

This is the story of our lives.


Whatever. We're taking turns.

For this intro, we're taking turns on lines.

Like, this line is me (Jake).

And this line is me (Lily).

Then we thought, Let's make two forts and we can bomb each other. So that's what we did. --Jerry Spinelli
