Guy is convinced that the man and woman with whom he has lived all his life cannot possibly be what they claim to be–his parents. They’re too weird! Would anyone else’s mother tie-dye every pair of underwear in the house? Would anyone else’s father perform the famous oyster trick by sucking an oyster up his nose with a horrible noise and spitting it out of his mouth–in a restaurant? No–except maybe the parents of the weirdest, craziest, most unappealing kid in Guy’s whole class, Bob-o. But Bob-o’s parents are as normal as parents come–just like Guy. This gives Guy food for thought, especially when he finds out that he and Bob-o have the same birthday, and were born in the same hospital! Guy and his best friend Buzz are determined to find out the truth about what really took place the day Guy and Bob-o were born. Readers will delight in Weeks’s humorous yet sensitive handling of this classic adolescent phase–the search for identity.
