Nick's father's name is David and in his school there is also a boy named David. What's so weird is that they look so much alike! Nick is trying to figure out if his dad is really Little David.
I read this because I love S.E. Hinton. I grew up reading her YA books and this is one of the books I hadn't read by her yet.
It is a fun and silly story of a boy who thinks his dad is also the kid in his class. And his dad doesn't really help since he is sort of pretending that he really is the kid in his son's class. You know he's not, but it is a fun story about the relationship between a father and son, and the little pranks that may go on. I liked it.
