Lost and Found

Andrew Clements

Fiction

It’s pretty much about two twins named Ray and Jay and how every day one stays home and the other goes to school. They look so alike that the students and teachers at school can’t tell the difference between the two twins. They also get confused because they think that theirs only one brother.

Andrew Clements also made fantastic books like Frindle and many other amazing books! It was illustrated by Mark Elliot. It’s a chapter book from the Oakridge library.

I rate this book four stars because of the writing and the exciting moments. I recommend this book to fourth and fifth graders that like fiction books.
