Abstract:

When Howard and Julia Lament secretly adopt Will, a baby switched at birth in a bizarre hospital debacle, it marks the beginning of a journey that takes them from Rhodesia to the Middle East, Britain to the New Jersey suburbs - for no matter where the Laments set up home, the grass always seems greener on the other side of the ocean. As the Laments discover that living somewhere doesn't necessarily mean belonging there, Will grows up struggling with his sense of identity in the shadow of his anarchic twin brothers, Julius and Marcus. Yet when disillusion and mishap threaten to tear his family apart, it is Will who fights to hold them together.
