The Swap

Ellie spent the summer before seventh grade getting dropped by her best friend since forever. Jack spent it training in "The Cage" with his tough-as-nails brothers and hard-to-please dad. By the time middle school starts, they're both ready for a change. And just as Jack's thinking girls have it so easy, Ellie's wishing she could be anyone but herself. Then, BAM! They swap lives - and bodies!

Publisher's Summary

"You be me.... and I'll be you."

Ellie spent the summer before seventh grade getting dropped by her best friend since forever. Jack spent it training in "The Cage" with his tough-as-nails brothers and hard-to-please dad. By the time middle school starts, they're both ready for a change. And just as Jack's thinking girls have it so easy, Ellie's wishing she could be anyone but herself.

Then, BAM! They swap lives - and bodies!

Now Jack's fending off mean girls at sleepover parties, while Ellie's reigning as The Prince of Thatcher Middle School.

As their crazy weekend races on - and their feelings for each other grow - Ellie and Jack begin to wonder if maybe the best way to learn how to be yourself is to spend a little time being somebody else.

    "The best heartwarming story I have ever read"

    Being a transgender girl / woman, this book pulls at my heartstrings. Growing up I was addicted to the concept of body swaps. I used to dream of waking up as a girl each night. Of course this is due to suffering a severe case of Gender Dysphoria. Even though this book wasn't written with Transgender people in mind, I think it would be a healthy read for those who are hurting inside.

    For 25 years I felt like Ellie stuck in Jacks body, every interaction with fellow guys kept me scratching my head trying to understand guys. Girls always made more sense to me, I could for the most part relate to their daily life struggles.

    The best part of the book was the last chapter, one of the happiest endings to a story I have read in a long time.

    On a funny note, if I was jack I wouldn't have wanted to switch back. I love being a girl, I wouldn't want to spend another second as a guy.
