Jake and Lily

He wrote Eggs, he wrote Stargirl, and this tale of twins has double the power. Amazing. Here at Scholastic, we truly believe you can’t not love Jerry Spinelli. Either you’re totally into him or you haven’t tried his books yet. They’re touching, they’re human and they make you happy and sad at the same time. Yes: the kind of rare books that do that. Now Jake and Lily tells you the story of a twin brother and sister who have always been as close as two peas in a pod. But now Jake is moving on. He doesn’t seem to need Lily anymore. Can she ever learn to be OK with that?

“Double the feelings, double the fun.” Kirkus
