Baker & Taylor
After moving to a new town, twins Ray and Jay Grayson learn that a clerical mistake at their new school finds only one attending, which puts these clever boys into a most fun--and dangerous--situation.

& Taylor

Twelve-year-old identical twins Jay and Ray have long resented that everyone treats them as one person, and so they hatch a plot to take advantage of a clerical error at their new school and pretend they are just one.

Simon and Schuster
The Grayson twins are moving to a new town. Again.

Although it's a drag to be constantly mistaken for each other, in truth, during those first days at a new school, there's nothing better than having a twin brother there with you. But on day one of sixth grade, Ray stays home sick, and Jay is on his own. No big deal. It's a pretty nice school, good kids, too. But Jay quickly discovers a major mistake: No one seems to know a thing about his brother. Ray's not on the attendance lists, doesn't have a locker, doesn't even have a student folder. Jay almost tells the school -- almost -- but then decides that this lost information could be very...useful. And fun.

As Ray and Jay exploit a clerical oversight, they each find new views on friendship, honesty, what it means to be a twin -- and what it means to be yourself. Entertaining, thought-provoking, and true-to-life, this clever novel is classic Andrew Clements times two: twins!

An interesting story that seems to really capture what it could feel like to be an identical twin.

This book is great with the switcher- oos and such... the ending had a good internal meaning. All in all... pretty good and is recommended. :)

The boys had been born six minutes apart-Grayson baby one, and Grayson baby two. Some twins look a little alike, and some twins look alot alike...but some twins look exactly alike... And Grayson baby one and Grayson baby two were that sort of twins, completely identical..." Lost and Found
