9780064471985: Jake and Lily

For almost as long as they can remember, Jake and Lily have shared a "special sense". But their bond seems to be weakening as, at age 11, Jake starts spending more time with new friends than with Lily; upset and rejected, Lily has no one to confide in except her grandfather. Lily tries to find out who she is without her brother, but it's hard work. Her feeling of abandonment is as sharply felt as Jake's need to test his independence. Spinelli celebrates each child's individualism and growing self-awareness.

Review:

Spinelli adroitly balances emotional tentsion with introspective moments in this smart and funny story about a pair of twins growing apart. ( Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review))

Double the feelings, double the fun. ( Kirkus)

The characters and situations mesh together perfectly, and in the end Jake and Lily both realize that they can live separate lives and still be connected. ( School and Library Journal)

Spinelli writes beautifully. ( Coventry Telegraph)

This is a fascinating exploration of being a twin... well explored and the characters ring true. ( Parents in Touch)

Spinelli's very good... accounts of relationships and events seem so simple, but behind their prose Spinelli is subtle, acute and respectful. * * * * ( Books for Keeps)

A fantastic book about the special relationship between twins... a brilliant humorous tale. ( The Guardian)

There is humour and fun in this thoughtful book, which has the author's characteristic light touch and acute, but sensitive, observations of human nature and the quirkiness of life. ( Carousel)

Book Description:

The award-winning author of STARGIRL presents a tale about twins.
