This smart and funny twist on Freaky Friday is perfect for fans of Wendy Mass, Jerry Spinelli, and Jon Scieszka.With one random wish, Jack and Ellie are living life in each other's shoes. He's her. And she's him. ELLIE assumed popular guys didn't worry about body image, being perfect, or talking to girls, but acting like you're cool with everything is tougher than it looks.JACK thought girls had it easy--no fights with bullies, no demanding dads, no power plays--but facing mean girls at sleepovers and getting grilled about your period is way harder than taking a hit to the face at sports practice.Now they're dealing with each other's middle school dramas--locker room teasing, cliques, video game battles, bra shopping, and a slew of hilariously awkward moments--until they hopefully switch back!

It shows a similarity to the other novel Bounce. However, this book teaches you more about perspectives and what a person can be going through in life.

Very enjoyable to read. It's a twist on a familiar idea, but it stands out. This is one of those books for younger people that adults can enjoy as well. The characters are realistic and very likable. I found this in the library by accident but am glad to have read it.

I love this book!! I made sure to buy it as soon as it came out in paperback! It's so funny, relatable, touching, and cute! You can go through a lot of books and have quite a many be less than ideal. This is one of the few that fit into the 'super awesome' category! I remember not wanting to put it down and absolutely falling in love with the characters. READ THIS BOOK. You won't regret it!!

I liked this book.... pretty good set up and plot. Only thing I didn't like was how.... unrealistic the boys were. It makes them seem completely fake. Its probably just because it is a female writer that it seems to be from a female perspective even when Jack is narrating.

I really liked this book, but I didn't like the plot twist at the end.

This is one of the best books I have ever read! It really gives you a look at life in two very different perspectives.
