Now a Disney Channel Original Movie, Megan ShullGÇÖs smart and funny twist on Freaky Friday is perfect for fans of Wendy Mass, Jerry Spinelli, and Jon Scieszka!
With one random wish, Jack and Ellie are living life in each otherGÇÖs shoes. HeGÇÖs her. And sheGÇÖs him. ELLIE assumed popular guys didnGÇÖt worry about body image, being perfect, or talking to girls, but acting like youGÇÖre cool with everything is tougher than it looks. JACK thought girls had it easyGÇöno fights with bullies, no demanding dads, no power playsGÇöbut facing mean girls at sleepovers and getting grilled about your period is way harder than taking a hit to the face at sports practice.
Now theyGÇÖre dealing with each otherGÇÖs middle school dramasGÇölocker room teasing, cliques, video game battles, bra shopping, and a slew of hilariously awkward momentsGÇöuntil they hopefully switch back! Told in both JackGÇÖs and EllieGÇÖs voices, The Swap offers a fresh and honest take on tween friendship, all while exploring more serious themes of family, loss, empathy, and what it really means to be yourself. And as Jon Scieszka says, itGÇÖs GÇ£seriously, truly, fearlessly funny!GÇ¥
