Seventh grader Frannie Hudson wonders what it would be like to trade in her family for a new one. Her big brother ignores her. Her mean older sister can't stand her. And her parents have just announced they're going on a last-minute vacation--without her. When Frannie makes one desperate, crazy wish--BOOM!--she magically bounces into a whole new life, with a totally different family. And. It. Is. Amazing! There's only one catch: waking up as someone else keeps happening. Plunged into lives and adventures she's only imagined--from being a pop star to meeting one super-cute boy--Frannie finds courage in the unforgettable friends and families she meets along the way. But as her new life spins out of control, Frannie begins to worry if she'll ever get back home. A celebration of the power of love and connection, Megan Shull's extraordinary new novel captures one girl's journey to find her voice, heal her heart, and discover the joy of bouncing back.

I think that this is a very good book because it is about a girl called Frannie switches lives. it was suspenseful.

I love this book! The characters seem to be on extreme ends - very mean or very kind. It talks about a young girl who doesn't feel loved and wanted by her family. She experiences the same christmas over and over - being 5 different girls in different environments. A farm girl, a famous child star, a girl who is travelling with her dad, a girl whose sister died, and a girl who is practically homeless. There, Franny gets herself into different situations and perspectives.

The reason I gave the book a 4 1/2 star is because the book was a little bring. I thought that the book had "AR" points, but it did not. It was like it copied The Swap another book by Megan Shull. It is an OK book.
