One December night, 14-year-old Alex goes to  bed. He wakes up to  find himself in the wrong bedroom, in an unfamiliar house, in a different part of the country, and it's the middle of June. Six months have disappeared overnight. The family at the breakfast table are total strangers.And when he looks in the mirror, another boy's face stares back at him.  A boy named Flip. Unless Alex finds out what's happened and how to get back to his own life,  he may be trapped forever inside a body that belongs to someone else.  Questions of identity, the will to survive, and what you're willing to sacrifice to be alive make this extraordinary book impossible to put down.

Could you imagine yourself, waking up one morning to find yourself in somebody else's body? Yea, well, this is what happened to Alex who woke up in a different body, different family and different life. The book starts with Alex trying to figure what is happening to him. He tried to solve this problem but how could he? What happened to the night before the transformation took place? Who knows?

This book had a new concept to it. All the time I was thinking about the ending. Well, it was nothing like I expected. However, I found the book to be very wordy. Too "much" words and too "less" action à not my type of books I really enjoy.

The book also was about how someone could think that they are in love with someone because of their looks but it is actually the personality that hides underneath the looks that counts.

It was a great read but too wordy for me.

Tata for now
