Book Description:

A girl’s sweet sixteen party is supposed to be among the most memorable events of her life. But on the night of hers, Mercy Clare wakes in the waiting room of a hospital with no memory of how she got there. To make matters worse, she’s wearing something she’d never be caught dead in: her best friend Lyla’s clothes.

Mercy’s nightmare is just beginning. The doctor arrives to tell her that it’s she who lies in the hospital bed waiting to die. A trip to the bathroom confirms Mercy’s fears, as Lyla’s face stares back at her and Lyla’s curvy figure pokes through her tight clothes.

But finding out what’s really going on won’t be easy. Because if Mercy wants her body back, it might just cost her Lyla’s life.

My Take on the Book:
I'm not gonna lie I was confused for a good portion of this book. Well mostly the beginning. I felt like I was missing a major piece of the puzzle, but once the confusion abated I fell in love. I love the characters and everything that came about. It was so different, unique. Not your typical kind of read!

There was something super likeable about our main character. Shes strong and loyal. But there was also something very human and real about her.

I found the premise of the book to be really intriguing... And you jump right in with the action on page 1. 
I mean, who in their right mind wouldn't freak out waking up in someone else's body.

What I wasn't too fond of was the triangle-ish romance going on... It felt really awkward and kinda forced. I mean I don't like them normally, and I don't understand why they are so popular in books but this one is particular made me uncomfortable. I couldn't bring myself to like either guy but when she interacted with the one she shows the most attention to, it made me feel a tad queasy. It just felt wrong in my opinion.

4.5 Quills

The writing is great and the storyline is really cool and unique so I think this has the chops to be a really good and popular series! Can't wait to read the next one (hopefully there is a second installment)
