If I Were You

If I Were You

Just in time for summer, a body switch story in the vein of Freaky Friday with best friends and boy trouble.

Twelve-year-old Katie is insanely jealous of her best friend, Melody. Turns out Melody is jealous of Katie, too. When they wish for the exact same thing—to be in each other's shoes—at the exact same moment, their wishes are granted. They’ll be redoing the summer, except this time as one another. In this be-careful-what-you-wish-for tale, two best friends learn that the grass is not always greener on the other side.
