    1. My initial reaction to the premise of this book was, “it’s been done.” The idea of swapping places with someone goes back at least as far as "Cyrano de Bergerac" who did a low-tech version. The book "Black Like Me" wasn’t a full-fledged swap, but did mine the same territory. "Freaky Friday" is an even better touchstone. I’m sure there are many more I’m forgetting or don’t know. Then I read the Stephen’s bio on where he says he wasn’t much of a reader, rarely reading for fun, u [...]

    2. This book did not work for me at all. While the concept is nice, it's been done before, and done in smoother, more interesting ways. The writing is very choppy, which really detracted from the reading experience. I feel bad about giving this such a low rating as the author sent me a copy, but I won't lie either. I'll have a more detailed review on my blog on 2-4Edited to add: Here is a link to my more in depth review. midnight-orchid/2*I received a free copy of this book from the author in excha [...]

    3. I can say right from the beginning I liked this story. It is seen through the eyes of a teen boy which for me is a different approach as I have mostly read books seen through the eyes of a girl. It does switch up however from both perspectives accordingly. Incredible attention to detail by the author and no stone is left unturned here. Very funny and entertaining. I also must say I loved the ending!

    4. For a constant reader and an all-out book ‘obsessed’ woman, I find myself missing the classics. I’m not talking Shakespeare, or even Jane Austen (especially considering that there are hundreds of writers basing many novels on that great lady nowadays). I mean YA fiction. In this current world, YA is synonymous with demon-killers, witches, wolves, vampires, death, suicide, disease - you know - peppy subjects. Just kidding, there are romance and adventure YA’s out there that are fantastic [...]

    5. First off, thanks for the ARC! It was the first one I have ever received, and that was quite an exiting thing for me. Anyway, I think I should say now that when I stated this book I didn't really have high hopes for it. The plot seemed a little overdone in my mind, having seen Freaky Friday, ect. I was also apprehensive because I'm more of a Sci-Fi/Fantasy nut and this wasn't my preferred genre. However, upon starting the book I really did find it a fun intriguing read. It was quite hilarious at [...]

    6. I really liked this book. There were many errors in it, though. It would skip words or use the wrong word. At one point, I had to re-read a page a few times because it had me so confused. First when he walked into Mike's house, Mike's mom was home so Jake, I believe, said hi to her. Then when he went into Mike's room, it said that his mom wasn't home and they were in the living room and they should go into his room. Something to that effect. It was very confusing for me. I don't know if I'm wron [...]

    7. I have always been drawn to body swap fiction. But just switching bodies isn’t enough for me. No, my ultimate attraction is when the body swap is combined with a gender swap. Boy in a girl’s body, girl in a boy’s body. The disorientation of not being the person you see in the mirror, coupled with having to learn how the other half of the population lives, is something that has always fascinated me. That’s why the self-published young adult novel “In My Shoes” by Adrian Stephens caugh [...]

    8. There's not really much to say here. As a story, it's been done before. I haven't seen it done better, but it still had many moments where I was questioning who was who. Additionally, the punctuation errors became distracting fairly quickly, which really didn't help me to keep the characters straight. That being said, I found Jake to be an extremely relatable character that dealt with a confusing situation the best way that he could. Other than that, the ending was predictable but amusing. Well [...]

    9. A cute read. I usually don't read books like this, but it was fun to watch Jake and Nicole go through each others lives. There is humor in Jake learning how to be a girl and Nicole having to deal with being a guy. There are also magical moments where they learn more about each other and about how there is more to a person than what we see through are own eyes. I enjoyed reading this book overall!Received this book in a first reads giveaway.

    10. I enjoyed this book a fair amount. It was different then anything I've read before. I thought it would be a bit slow with the characters being switched in each others bodies for so long but the author did a good job keeping it interesting by making them going through different tasks and difficulties each day.

    11. This was a very good book, there were spots where if you were not reading carefully you would be uncertain who was speaking but that just made it more challenging to read. Too bad what happened to Jake did not happen in real life could sure be great for some of us. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

    12. I highly recommend this book for anyone FTC: I received a free copy of this book and was not reimbursed in any other way.
