My name is Toby Robin O'Keefe. Out of every ten thousand kids who get named "Toby", only one is a girl. I was named after my Grandmother, Caitlin Tobia O'Toole. Mom's name is Caitlin, too, so I guess that's why I got Tobia. But my birth certificate says "Toby".
It wouldn't be so bad if they'd have spelled it Tobie. Every year at the beginning of school some new girl comes up and says that her dad or brother or uncle or whatever is named Toby, and that "Toby-With-A-Why" is a boy's name.
So I use both my first and second name when I sign things, because out of every ten thousand kids who get named "Robin", only one is a boy.
That evens things out.
Two years ago I solved a real crime, and it was in the newspaper with my picture. My Dad is the editor of the paper, and that might have had something to do with it, but I really did figure out a mystery that the police couldn't. That's when I knew I was going to be a detective, and I've been practicing ever since. I've solved lots of simple mysteries like finding things other kids at school have lost. Sometimes I get in bigger adventures, and get into trouble and need help.
