Josh and JB are identical twins, but they are very different. Josh had long hair (well, HAD long hair!) and JB shaves his head. Josh is quiet and JB is loud. Josh wants to go to Duke and JB wants to go to UNC. They both struggle with finding their own identity, while still remaining close knit and growing up together.
