Both Ellie and Jack were having one of the worst first days of school ever. Ellie has had it confirmed that her once best friend now has a new one and loves to make fun of Ellie and Jack has gotten into a fight. Both end up in the nurse’s office. Ellie because she can’t stop crying and Jack, because, well, his nose is bleeding all over the place.
What they don’t know is that they both wish they were the opposite sex at the same time. They both think it would be so much easier. What they also don’t know is that their new school nurse, isn’t a typical school nurse. So she is able to make their wishes come true!
Be careful what you wish for comes back to bite both Jack and Ellie! Because now, Ellie is Jack and Jack is Ellie. And it is Friday and the nurse seems to have disappeared. So Ellie and Jack have to get through an entire weekend as each other without anyone else knowing what is going on. Can they do it? Will there be any long term effects? And what happens if they can’t switch back?
The Swap by Megan Shull is a great book and readers will gobble it up. A totally enjoyable read.
