When Ronan, the school bully, turns his attentions to Jack, Jack knows he has to think fast to save his skin. He comes up with the idea of a twin brother, a tough, fearless, not-to-be-messed-with twin brother who, he says, attends a different school. But when the other boys begin to doubt his claims, Jack's twin needs to put in an appearance. The situation snowballs as Jack struggles to keep up the lie of being two people at once. What will happen when the other boys, and Ronan, find out he has deceived them? An original and very funny take on the difficulties of school life with an unusual and sensitive twist at the end.
