Summary
In Miami, fifth-grader Rachel always feel invisible next to her intelligent twin sister until she learns to appreciate her own special talents. Rachel has theories about a lot of things - how she ended up with humongous beaver teeth, why tourists who visit Miami wear such ugly clothes, and why her father loves her identical twin sister, Rebecca, the most. Still, there are many things in Rachel's life that even her best theories can't really explain. Why, for instance, does her grandmother insist on feeding her honey cake every Sunday, when everyone knows it tastes disgusting? Why did Rachel end up with the most ancient fifth grade teacher in the school, a woman with amoeba-shaped stains under her arms? And why is Rachel always in trouble, unlike Rebecca? In humor-filled prose and pictures, Nicole Rubel introduces us to a remarkably off-the-wall family - a father who sells novelty maracas for a living, a mother who is so gorgeous even orangutans fall in love with her, a sister who is a perfect genius, and scattered Rachel - struggling to find her unique talent and self-confidence
