Summary

Trevor and Sam look alike. But their lives couldn't be more different.

Trevor is a movie star, living the Hollywood life in a huge mansion with his own limo, pool, and bowling alley. There's nothing he doesn't have except the one thing he wants most: to play baseball for real.

Sam is a regular kid who seems to have what it takes to make it to baseball's Major Leagues. He's determined to get the scouts at the big USC tournament to recognize his talent. And he really wants to see his dad, a struggling screenwriter, realize his own dream.

When Sam signs up at Casting Central to make some extra money, he and Trevor come together on a movie set and see the chance to trade places--to pinch hit for each other and make everyone's dreams come true.

At first, it's all good. . . . But what happens when the boys take their game too far?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Trevor is a major Hollywood star with an actress mother and a big-time producer father. He dreams, though, of playing baseball on a regular team. (Trevor's father once rented the L.A. Dodgers to scrimmage with him, but that was only a major embarrassment for Trevor.) Meanwhile, Sam lives with his English-teacher father, a would-be screenwriter, in a trailer near a dump. The two boys eventually discover that they are twins separated at birth. Together they concoct a Prince and the Pauper-type switch, giving Trevor a chance to play baseball and Sam a chance to act, hang out with a beautiful young actress, live in a mansion, and plug his dad's screenplay. Of course, many bumps along the way keep things exciting and humorous until the true story of Sam's background is revealed. Many young readers will enjoy this lighthearted and fast-moving modern take on a familiar plot device, including fans of Green's other sports novels.--Morning, Todd Copyright 2010 Booklist"
