My Evil Twin by Thomas McKean
My Evil Twin is one of the best children's books I have read. The story may not be at its upmost in realism, but the rest of the story takes care of that.
Jellimiah John Jensen hates his first name. He was named after his grandfather. He has his first school, in California, call him John, but one teacher slips and he has to endure being called Smelly Jelly, etc.
John is also a geek, and not very well liked. He gets his school to send in his transcript without Jellimiah. The school makes a mistake, and when he arrives at his new school, the first thing he has said to him is, "Where is your twin brother"? This book is a wonderful comedy of errors and triumphs.
