What do you do when the body you wake up in isn’t yours?
Olly and Scott promised to be best friends forever. They grew up on the same street, went to the same school, and did everything together. But one hot summer night, teenage experimentation caused hurt feelings and confusion, and their friendship was destroyed.
Four years later they’re both eighteen years old and in their final term at school. Scott is a football star and Olly’s preparing for a main role in the school play. After a heated argument in the street—witnessed by their mysterious, elderly neighbour—they wake up the next morning stuck in each other’s bodies.
With no idea how to get back to normal, they have to co-operate in order to hide their secret. Spending time together rekindles their friendship, yet feelings run deeper for both of them. With the end of school fast approaching, the clock is ticking. Unless they discover how to change back, they could be stuck in the wrong bodies forever.
Review by Roroblu’sMum
Lovely read which needs a little follow-on snippet one day, showing what happens with the leads and the…’meddlers’ who helped things along.
This is a lovely YA tale that I had no trouble relating to, even though I have a son 6yrs older than the leads. It’s a sweet, innocent-ish tale of friends getting to the teen experimenting stage, losing their friendship over developing feelings/sexuality and then being forced into working together to try to fix something that happens to them both.
It’s hard to review without spoiling the tale, but my advice would be to go with the flow, suspend disbelief for a second and enjoy. It’s a tale that, due to the little…hints, made me think that these guys, despite their young ages, were it for each other and were well on their way to a HEA.

She comes from a family of writers, but she always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed her by. She spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content.
