Jay Grayson was twelve years old, so the first day of school shouldn’t have felt like such a big deal. But when he turned the corner onto Baker Street and saw the long brick building, he had to force himself to keep walking toward it. And Jay knew exactly why he felt so tensed up on this Tuesday morning in September: He was a new kid at a new school in a new town. Plus, his brother had stayed home sick today, so there wouldn’t be even one familiar face in the whole school. He had to deal with this first day of sixth grade all on his own.
Jay’s mom had offered to come to school and help get him checked in. “I’m not some little baby, Mom.” That’s what he had told her. Which was true.
So as he walked through the front doors of Taft Elementary School with a small crowd of other kids, Jay tried to look on the bright side. He told himself, This could be a lot worse.

And now he is hooked on to Andrew Clements. I already bought Frindle for him and we just finished reading this book together. He wants more Andrew Clements.
A must book for parents who have identical twins to delve into the psyche of twin boys.
The prose is very lucid and ideal for 9-10 year olds and yet is racy humorous and very very interesting.
The book is about two middle school children who are identical twins who move into a new town and new school with their parents and who are trying to find their own individual identity in a world where they have been always been together in everything. An oversight in their new school gives them the chance to view the world around them individually in a very unique manner and how the twins try and make most of the situation before things go back to "normal" is what this book is about. A must read!!

Twins Jay and Ray are a lot of fun to read about, and are well-rounded characters. The parents are maybe a bit 2-dimensional, but they are relatively minor to the story. There's a mix up with their school records when the twins transfer in as new students, 6th graders--the school think there is only one boy name Jay Ray Grayson. Jay convinces his brother to not say anything so that they can alternate going to school as "Jay." Not so much so they can skip school (though they don't mind that), but so they can experience what it would feel like to be on their own, not half of the twins.
As for the crushes on girls, it all seems very innocent to me. I haven't read anything inappropriate or something I wouldn't want to read to my son. Ray has a crush on Melissa and thinks she's cute. Jay almost messes things up with Melissa on his day to go to school since he's a bit too awkward and shy to talk to girls, while Ray is much more comfortable talking to girls. Ray feels guilty for lying to the girl he likes, so he tells Melissa about the secret Jay and Ray have. I have no problem with that part of the storyline. Brings back my own memories of 6th grade and having a crush on the boy whose locker was next to mine. ;)
