Descrição

This is a story about me, Lily.
And me, Jake.
We're twins and we're exactly alike.
Not exactly!
Whatever. This is a book we wrote about the summer we turned eleven and Jake ditched me.
Please. I just started hanging out with some guys in the neighborhood.
Right. So anyway, this is a book about
goobers and supergoobers
bullies
clubhouses
true friends
things getting built and wrecked and rebuilt
and about figuring out who we are.
We wrote this together
(sort of)
so you'll get to see both sides of our story.
But you'll probably agree with my side.
You always have to have the last word, don't you?
Yes!

    Jake and Lily were always connected. As twins, they felt what each other was feeling and even sleepwalked together on their birthday each year. When they turned 11 though, things changed as Jake wanted his independence and life with new-found friends. Lily feels ripped in half without her brother, but her grandfather tries to help her find herself while Jake explores the world on his own. He is totally engrossed in the new gang, led by Bump who searches out kids who are different to harass them. As the summer wears on, Jake gets to know one nerd who just seems to be able to not let anything get him down, until Jake lets him down, and Jake needs to make a decision. This book will resonate with anyone who has a close sibling or friend, and doesn't understand when things change. Good for a book discussion for grades 4-6.

    Jake and Lily are twins, and all their life they have had a secret connection to each other. They can't play hide and seek, because the always know where each other is hiding. They can answer each others questions before they're asked. Things like that.But after they turn 11, Jake starts wanting to hang out with a little gang of boys in the neighborhood instead of his sister, and their connection begins to fade. Lily still wants Jake to be her best friend forever, but he seems tired of her.They tell their stories in alternating chapters. Lily's focuses on dealing with the loss of her brother. Jake, who has more or less abandoned her, focuses on his fiends - the leader of the gang being a neighborhood bully. Jakes chapters, around the middle section of the book, get a bit uncomfortable to read, because we're following this hateful bully, and Jake seems to be enjoying the meanness.Of course, things all work out well in the end for everyone concerned.Lily I felt a lot of empathy for. Jake, not so much through most of the book. Yes, he redeems himself in the end, but there are a lot of pages in which to dislike him.

    Jake and Lily by Jerry SpinelliSummary:   Jake and Lily are not just brother and sister - they are twins. They have always been there for each other and shared a special bond until one day Jake decides he wants to be his own person.  What's a twin to do?What I liked about the book:  Last year my school had 17 sets of twins.  This upcoming school year we will have just as many, maybe more. So I've been on a search for twin stories to add to our collection.  You can always count on Spinelli for  a good read.  He paints a humorous story about the challenges siblings (and especially twins) face.  Young readers will enjoy Lily's adventures and will sympathize with Jake's wish to have his own identity while understanding Lily's sense of betrayal when Jake wants to find his own friends.  The chapters alternate between Lily and Jake, allowing them to present their own versions of the story.  This would be a great read aloud - perhaps even for students to use in a readers' theater.What I didn't like about the book:  This was a great read. I'll be honest - there is one character that I didn't like - Bump Stubbins - but we are not supposed to like him.  Overall, this is a great addition to any classroom or school library.

    I could see it coming. I could see his goo-goo eyes every time we saw the Bumpsters riding around. I figured sooner or later Jake would join them. Just thinking about it made me mad. mad enough to decide that when it finally happened, I would just spit, burp, and call "Good riddance! Who needs ya? Who cares?"What does she want? Does she want me to spend my whole life with nobody but her? Oh look, there's Jake and Lily, They're seventy-nine years old and they still play poker and ride bikes together. They still hear each other five miles away. Still sleep in the same bedroom. You can't tear them apart. Aren't they adorable. Twinny twin twins.

    I've liked every book by Jerry Spinelli that I have read. This story is told in two voices. The twins, Jake and Lily, share alternate chapters to tell their story. The two voices do not really sound different to me but the characters are well drawn, 10 years old and growing.

    A wonderful story about twins growing up and growing apart as only the brilliant Jerry Spinelli can do it.
  • (4/5)
    Twins Jake and Lily have always been inseperable. They complete each other's thoughts, feel each other's emotions, and will even sleepwalk to the same location on their birthday every year. But then one summer, Jake heads off on his own. And Lily isn't quite sure how she feels about that.

    Jake and Lily is a coming-of-age story. Relatable not just to twins, but also to any reader who finds a friend or sibling "leaving" them for new adventures. And who hasn't experienced that at some point in childhood?

    Twins Jake and Lily have are connected with each other in a deeper way than with anyone else in the world. But when Jake starts hanging out with boys in the neighborhood instead of spending time with Lily, that connection begins to break and Lily becomes lost and confused.Told in alternate journal entries by Jake and Lily, the book is evenly paced. Though Spinelli's straightforward storytelling may seem a little basic at times, it cuts right to the core of the feelings and issues Lily and Jake deal with-- their changing relationship, peer pressure, teasing, and finding themselves. This incredibly realistic story may not particularly engage readers the same way as some of Spinelli's earlier work, like "Maniac McGee" or "Who Put That Hair on my Toothbrush?", but readers nonetheless care deeply for Jake and Lily and want things to work out in their favor. This book is recommended for late elementary and middle school students, but if book budgets are tight, Jake and Lily could be skipped.
