What?

High school junior Brinkley Harper is beautiful, wealthy, admired, and powerful--until the day she wakes up in the body of a classmate she wouldn’t be caught dead hanging out with.

Goth girl Miranda is everything Brinkley isn’t: she won't leave the house in anything but black, her family life is in tatters, she’s practically invisible at school, and she’s hiding a dark secret. As Brinkley experiences Miranda’s life from the inside out, she’s forced to consider the world from a very different point-of-view. But this won’t be Brinkley's last “jump,” and each time she lives a day in another classmate’s body, Brinkley not only begins to feel empathy for others, she also begins to glimpse the fears, vulnerabilities, and disappointments behind her own perfect fa├žade. By experiencing the world as somebody else, Brinkley may finally learn to understand herself.

Why?

This looks like a good story. I like the fact thatBrinkley is going to live the lives of more than just one person. I think this will be a great read!

  3. Hi, I got here hopping and you got a new follower :D
    That book sounds great, I'll try to get it for myself, I like the idea of being in more than one "other body", unlike most movies or books...
    Hugs!
