9781250079749: If I Were You

Be careful what you wish for. A refreshing twist on the Freaky Friday set-up, If I Were You by Leslie Margolis is a fun, touching middle-grade story about friendship, family, and overcoming jealousy.

Katie is jealous of her best friend, Melody. Turns out that Melody is jealous of Katie, too. It's the end of what was supposed to be the best summer of their lives, before they start middle school, and the girls aren't on speaking turns. They've had a big fight over-what else?-a boy. When the two girls wish for the exact same thing at the same moment-to redo the summer as each other-their wishes are granted. But, as the girls will learn, sometimes the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

About the Author:

Leslie Margolis is the author of a bunch of great books for kids, including Girl’s Best Friend and two other Maggie Brooklyn Mysteries. She also wrote Boys Are Dogs, which was turned into the Disney Channel movie Zapped. Leslie lives in Los Angeles with two purple fish, one six-toed genius dog, and a few other people.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5–7—Best friends and soon-to-be seventh graders Katie and Melody each think the other has the ideal life. Katie envies Melody's perfect parents, gorgeous boyfriend, and beautiful body, while Melody longs for a more close-knit family and a figure that won't solicit unwanted attention from strangers. In the spirit of Mary Rodgers's Freaky Friday (HarperCollins, 1972), Katie and Melody find themselves in one another's bodies after a well-timed wish on the last day of summer. Predictably, as the summer resets and each girl lives the other's life, she begins to realize that the grass may not be quite so green on the other side. Once this realization is achieved, Margolis brings the story to a quick, tidy resolution. Katie and Melody are sympathetic characters, and tween readers will relate to the envy that twines its way through their friendship. The chapters alternate between the two girls, and while their points of view and family lives are in stark contrast, their narrative voices are less distinct. This book doesn't have much to add to the body-switch formula, but readers looking for a summertime read with boys and best friends will enjoy it. VERDICT An additional purchase for many collections.—Lauren Strohecker, McKinley Elementary School, Abington School District, PA
