KIRKUS REVIEW

It usually happens to 15-year-old Claire when there’s a thunderstorm, and only with someone born under the same moon. Switching bodies, that is. The bulky swimmer can’t explain why on a clear night she finds herself in the knockout body of Larissa, the snobbish vacationer she recently encountered in her sleepy seaside town. Or why she can’t return to her own body after sleeping, the usual remedy. With an overworked single mother who won’t reveal her father’s identity, the teen has only one confidante: her deceased grandmother, Evelyn, a fellow switcher who died prematurely in a mental institution. When gorgeous Nate, Claire’s longtime crush, decides to date Larissa and Evelyn takes over Claire’s body to relive her lost youth, will Claire ever want—or be able—to go back? As she discovers truths about Larissa’s family, Evelyn’s past and her relationship with Nate, she learns acceptance—especially of herself. Claire’s quick-paced narration comes laced with bolts of sarcasm; the realistic problems blend successfully into a suspenseful, mystical story that will attract fans of both chick-lit and the supernatural. (Fantasy. YA)
