From the time that they were born twins Ray and Jay have been close friends and companions. But sometimes being a twin has drawbacks as well. Most people confuse the two boys, and by the time they turn twelve they are starting to be fed up with being “the twins.” Ray and Jay don't like it when people compare them to each other, and they want to form their own personalities without being tied together.

Soon the twins are taking advantage of this mistake by taking turns going to school. Finally they each get a chance to go to school on their own. But soon the tangled web of friendships, tests, and homework begins to weigh heavily on both twins. How long can Ray and Jay keep their secret? More importantly, should they in the first place?
