Grade 4-6Eleven-year-old Guy Strang is convinced that he was switched at birth with some other baby. How else can he explain how he ended up with his parents. His mother dances around the house in lime-green stretch pants, a fluorescent orange top, and see-through high heels with plastic fish inside and his father likes to suck oysters up his nose and then spit them out of his mouthin public. Guy is just a regular guy who wants ordinary parents. So when his best friend Buzz comes up with a plan to search the school records to see if any of the other sixth graders share Guys birthday, he agrees to go along with it. They find an exact match: Robert Smith (known by one and all as Bob-o), the weirdest kid in school. And, Bob-os parents are as ordinary as Guys are eccentric. Could Guys theory be true? He arranges to switch places with Bob-o for a weekend (a supposed class project) and finds that there is no place like home. The plot moves quickly, is written in a breezy style, and has a likable and well-drawn main character. Guys embarrassment over his parents behavior is something that most children have experienced at one time or another. However, there is never any doubt that his folks love and treasure him. A subplot concerns Guys efforts to turn Bob-o into a normal sixth grader. A clever take on the search for ones identity.Terrie Dorio, Santa Monica Public Library, CA
