Overview

Jake and Lily by Jerry Spinelli

Beloved Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli, author of Maniac Magee and Wringer, addresses issues of identity, belonging, family, and bullying in this humorous and heartfelt novel about twins. 

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.

This book, Lily and Jake, is very good. Written by Jerry Spinelli, Jake and Lily are twins. They are not just ordinary twins. They have a special bond called "gloomba". When Jake decides he is way different than Lily, the twins' life changes. Jake starts hanging out with the neighborhood bully, Bump, scoping out Goobers and SuperGoobers. Lily is sad and disappointed in Jake and is letting her feelings and questions out quite frequently in front of Mom, Dad, and Poppy(Jake and Lily's long-lost grandfather). To find out what happens to Jake and his gang, The Death Rays, Lily, and the adults in this book, buy Jerry Spinelli's Jake and Lily today. Recommended for ages eight and up. Happy reading!~Etalien

This book was awesome! I couldn't put it down! It's about twins named Jake and Lily. Jake thinks they're different and wants to grow out of doing everything with his sister. Meanwhile, Lily thinks they're the same and still wants him to be her best friend. Jake tells about rocky adventures with his new group of friends, and Lily spills about how she's upset about losing Jake and doesn't want their special twin power (Goombla) to go away. At the end, there's a twist to each of their stories. Read to find out! A book for everyone!

This was an okay book but was kind of confusing with all the jumping back and forth between Jake and Lily. It was also a more kidlike book than I had expected, but overall it was a good read.

Probably a book best for ages 7-11, but still cute.
