Lily's life is changing fast and she is not happy—really not happy—hide-in-your-room-for-days not happy! Through the guidance of her beloved Poppy, Lily finds the courage to embrace change and find new friends in unexpected places. As she learns to accept all that makes her unique, Lily learns powerful lessons about love, letting go, and family. At the same time Lily's story is told, Spinelli masterfully mixes in the story of Jake, Lily's twin brother, who spends the summer learning lessons of his own. Jake must learn the difference between friendship and popularity, and how to correct a massive mistake. While their summers head very different directions, these twins come together to offer readers an enjoyable read that illustrates an important lesson about character when it counts.
Publisher Summary
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.

Sharing a summer of friends and bullies in their 11th year, twins Jake and Lily, who have always felt like two halves of the same person, make valuable discoveries about their unique interests and qualities. By the Newbery Medal-winning author of Maniac Magee. 60,000 first printing.
