Nothing Alike, by Zewlan Moor

Nothing Alike is a slyly funny story about a white boy who can't tell two Asian girls apart in his classroom. Or can he?

Reuben and his best friend, Owen, think it's impossible to tell Esmé and Eunwoo apart! They both have the same dark hair, are both short, and they even wear the same school uniform. Except that once Reuben starts to think about it, of course he knows who is who. But the girls have a surprise in store for him. Reuben and Owen look more like than they realise!

In this masterful picture book about race and perception, Nothing Alike shines a light on the tricky topic of micro-aggressions and stereotyping, with the wry humour, child-centredness and friendship dynamics of Who's Your Real Mum? Can Reuben learn to really see the girls as individuals and thereby be a better friend?
