Claire Martin has some serious body issues.
Ever since Claire hit her teens, electrical storms have been making her switch bodies. Usually she's back to her old self in no time. But when something goes terribly wrong, she finds herself stuck in the fabulous body—and life—of Larissa, the icy blonde beauty who has caught the eye of Nate, Claire's longtime crush.
Will Claire ever figure out how to get her old life back? And, more importantly, will she even want to?
We all have that book that just sits on your shelf. You know what I mean, that book that you keep telling yourself you will get around to reading but never do. This happened to be one of those books for me. I got it for my birthday a year or two ago, and thought it looked really good. The only problem was that I never actually got around to reading it, until now.
For this being one of Carol Snow's first books, it was pretty good. It was a fun light read. I blew through this book in a couple of days. I found the dialog to be funny and cute. The book had an interesting concept, though I was annoyed with some of the characters. Especially Evelyn, Claire’s grandmother, she made me laugh at times, but a lot of her decisions made me mad. The other character I couldn’t stand was Nate. He was so shallow and annoying! I couldn’t understand why Claire liked him. The book was pretty fast paced and an enjoyable read. Perfect for a short quick read.
