    This is a story about me, Lily.
    And me, Jake.
    We're twins and we're exactly alike.
    Not exactly!
    Whatever. This is a book we wrote about the summer we turned eleven and Jake ditched me.
    Please. I just started hanging out with some guys in the neighborhood.
    Right. So anyway, this is a book about
    goobers and supergoobers
    true friends
    things getting built and wrecked and rebuilt
    and about figuring out who we are.
    We wrote this together
    (sort of)
    so you'll get to see both sides of our story.
    But you'll probably agree with my side.
    You always have to have the last word, don't you?

    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. No one writes as skillfully about the border between childhood and adolescence, innocence and experience, like Jerry Spinelli.
