Identical twins Ray and Jay Grayson are moving to a new town. Again. But at least they’ll have each other’s company at their new school. Except, on the first day of sixth grade, Ray stays home sick, and Jay quickly discovers a major mistake: No one knows about his brother.

Read from the Book

Lost and Found CHAPTER 1   ALPHABETICAL     Jay Grayson was twelve years old, so the first day of school shouldn’t have felt like such a big deal. But when he turned the corner onto Baker Street and saw the long brick building, he had to force himself to keep walking toward it. And Jay knew exactly why he felt so tensed up on this Tuesday morning in September: He was a new kid at a new school in a new town. Plus, his brother had stayed home sick today, so there wouldn’t be even one familiar face in the whole school. He had to deal with this first day of sixth grade all on his own. Jay’s mom had offered to come to school and help get him checked in. “I’m not some little baby, Mom.” That’s what he had told her. Which was true. So as he walked through the front doors of Taft Elementary School with a small crowd of other kids, Jay tried to look on the bright side. He told himself, This could be a lot worse.
