jojo Mia – yes, Laurie is a boy :). His actual name is Theodore Laurence but all the guys kept calling him Dora so he changed his nickname to Laurie. Hope this helped!
Emma Trahan Yeah, he is. Don't worry, before I knew he was a boy, I thought he was a girl... And that his name was Laurie Laurence!
Maryam Yes, Theodore Laurence, is it supposed to say that in the book. His nickname is Laurie because people kept calling him Dora.
