Guy Strang is convinced that the man and woman with whom he has lived all his life cannot possibly be who 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 – 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, most unappealing kid in Guy’s whole class, Bob-o. But Bob-o’s parents are as normal as parents come – just like Guy.
Could Guy and Bob-o have been . . . switched at birth?
Guy Strang can’t imagine life without his best friend, Buzz. They’ve been inseparable since second grade, when fate tossed them together with a little help from a bad haircut, green boxer shorts, flying rice cakes, and a couple of hard-earned nicknames. So when an accident threatens to tear them apart, Guy finds himself clinging to precious memories of a friendship better than he could have wished for.
The ups and downs and inevitable complications of friendship have never been more funny, poignant, and sweet than in this fourth installment of the Guy series.
