For a Young Adult novella, Body Swap had some surprising depth. The portion of the book when William is in Stephanie's body is very well-handled and (most importantly) quite realistic. The obligatory scenes of struggling with a bra and heels are there, but it's handled with sensitivity instead of being used for slaptstick comedy. William's emotional and mental struggles are the focus here, and they're quite touching.

This was a really cute book. It was so fun reading a young story written from a boy's point of view. Boys do think so differently than girls and it came across throughout the story. Many of the scenes were pretty dang funny with a boy in a girl's body and I laughed out loud at times. The best surprise however, was that it was a sweet and touching story about forgiveness and moving forward :) Great middle grade read!
This story does a great job of grabbing the reader and getting them to feel the main characters emotions. You will be taken by William and shown his world through his eyes. You will feel as he does and in the end have a better understanding of his life. I was mesmerized and will be on the look out for more by this author.

Body Swap is a great book. What I liked was that I was able to learn new things and laugh at the same time! The plot is well crafted and suspense is cleverly maintained until the end. I highly recommend this novel to readers of all ages.

I read YA novels every now and then for a light read. This one was really good. I loved most of the characters and the author did a great job of letting you into their heads. The best part was reading how difficult it would be for a boy to be trapped in a girls body. It was good, clean fun and mildy amusing in certain parts. Worth the money for a quick, easy read.
