Mattie Gomez feels directionless after being uprooted from her beloved Minnesota to move to California with her mom, new stepfather and stepbrothers.  So when she meets a girl at her new school that looks exactly like her, Mattie’s not sure what to think.  The two girls may look alike but they couldn’t be more different.  Mattie is quiet and would rather be invisible and blend into the background while the outgoing and popular Mercedes loves being the center of attention.  Mattie’s new home is crowded and noisy while Mercedes lives in a huge house with a live-in nanny and little brother, her workaholic mom away much of the time.  Soon enough, however, the girls learn they have at least one thing in common – a dad from Columbia that neither of them has ever known.  The opportunity to meet Francisco Gomez Flores, their renowned anthropologist father, lands at their feet when they learn he will be a visiting professor at a nearby college, and the girls are determined to meet him.  Suddenly they must work together to make that happen.  From sneaking out of a school field trip, dodging security guards and getting caught in a student protest, Mattie and Mercedes will do whatever it takes to track down the man both desperately want to know.  The perfect choice for fans of hilarious tales such as The Parent Trap!
