Fat Charlie Nancy (who wasn't really fat) had the life he thought he wanted. Or at least the life he hoped he deserved. Then he went to his estranged father's funeral. And then he met his unknown twin. Through a series of farcical adventures, Charlie and his brother Spider discover that their differences aren't as deep as they thought, and neither of them is really the person they believed.

I picked up this book looking for a lighthearted, up-lifiting read. Gaiman did not disappoint. The story left me smiling and the characters reminded me of the strength inherent in all of us.
