I looked at his driver's license. He was five foot nine, 150 pounds and had blue eyes. What do you know? Same as me. I almost laughed. Funny how we could be so much alike and so different at the same time. Andrew Ashbury got everything he could ever want and I got nothing.
How did that happen? I stared at his face. What was so great about him? He was no better than me.

When Chris finds a wallet on the street he tries to return it to its owner. In trouble at home and at school, he is struggling to do the right thing. However, as circumstances slowly start unraveling and his whole life appears headed down the drain, Chris realizes that the person who owns the wallet looks a lot like him and has a life he would do almost anything for. What if he switched identities? What if he became someone else?

"A high-quality story for reluctant, heart-thumping...will appeal to most any upper middle school or high school boy."
CD Syndicated - June 21, 2007
"I.D. is remarkable just for being about something as topical (and, unfortunately, enticing) as identity theft. Then the book gets better by building an actual story (and not a lame morality lesson) aound its issue. It's also so tautly written that I was impressed and engrossed in how it was all going to turn out."
CM Magazine - May 1, 2007
"Coherent, snappy prose...undeniably motivating; readers will feel able to commit to this book...Recommended."
