“Lost and Found,” by Andrew Clements

“Lost and Found,” by Andrew Clements is a junior fiction novel about the school adventure of two twins.

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.

When the Grayson family moves, Ray and Jay have a chance to start out a new school. Not only that, but due to clerical error only one of the twins was registered for school. 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?

Andrew Clement's novel “Lost and Found” teaches important lessons about honesty and friendship. It also offers an surprising view of what it is like to be a twin. Just like Andrew Clement's other novels, “Lost and Found” is refreshing to read, with a thought-provoking meaning to complement entertaining storyline.

I like the idea in a way. It doesn't sound like the trick would work well for too long. People have ever so slightly different quirks even twins.

It doesn't, Book Calendar. Andrew Clement's books always teach valuable lessons for young school age children, in this case regarding honesty.
