About this deal
The simplest explanation of the plot would be to call it a retelling of the Prince and the Pauper plot. Only instead of physically exchanging places with each other the characters manage to perform a bit of Freaky Friday magic on themselves and teleport their souls into each other's bodies. A simple enough plot that is complicated by the intelligence of one of the boys participating (unwittingly) in the exchange. What follows the Switch is a series of plots that thrust both boys into hitherto unknown territory, which they manage to navigate relatively unscathed, at east mentally. From award winner Telgemeier ( Smile, 2010), a pitch-perfect graphic novel portrayal of a middle school musical, adroitly capturing the drama both on and offstage.

I often bemoan that there were not good books written for young adults when I was one. This book proves me wrong on that.

Rich and strange (and kitted out with an eye-catching cover), but stronger in the set pieces than the internal logic.

There are a lot of body swap stories and this one is a good one. It was enjoyable from start to finish. The subplots worked well too and were not tested on animals.I also loved Tad's character development as he sees the world in a whole new way. He is truly changed from the inside out, and I was delighted with the complexity of his personality.
