really liked it

In this comedic take on the body switching plot, there's a twist as mentioned in the summary, which gives the book a fresh look at this used-before plot. Jill's side of the story is a bit bland as it's similar to some other chicklit novels that mainly talk about boys and how to get noticed by them, and then embarrassing situations abound, etc. but is still fairly fun to read because of McLaughlin's humor. But what really makes this novel is Jack's side- he is so very much a boy, and McLaughlin did a fantastic job getting his voice down as well as she did. His voice and plight are compelling to read, but both lead up to a dramatic climax, which had me turning pages so quickly. I was disappointed with the ending until I found out that there would be a sequel, and so it makes more sense now knowing that info, and I'm eagerly anticipating it. So be sure to get this book soon- it'll be easy to find since it's got such a shiny foil cover!
