I am a mother of three boys (13 and a pair of 11-year old twins) and they allow me to read books to them (still!). This is one of our "family book club" picks and it was a good one. Jake and Lily are fraternal twins and the book is about how close they are (think "goombla!") and how difficult it is for Lily to find herself in the wake of her brother, Jake, separating to forge his own path with some boys in the neighborhood. The portrayal of her relationship with her grandfather, Poppy, and Jake's relationship with the neighborhood "goober," Earnest (AKA "Soop") were both special. The kids enjoyed the book for the suspense about Ernie's clubhouse. I enjoyed the book for the path Lily was journeying. I think this was a light-hearted but thoughtful treatment of the transition from childhood to adolescence.
