Synopsis: Shortly before she turns fifteen and loses the power to "Switch," Tess spends time with her cousins in the Irish countryside trying out different animal forms, but when her cousins disappear in the woods she must face her fears to save them.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-Tess is coming up on her 15th birthday and will lose the power to "switch" into other kinds of creatures at will. As she tries to decide which form she'll want to retain for the rest of her life, she helps out on her aunt and uncle's farm and tries to savor the last few days of being a kestrel, a goat, or a rat. Her friend Kevin arrives from Dublin, not only to support her as she makes her decision, but also to make some money leading away the rats that have infested the farm. As her birthday draws nearer, she finds herself trying to fathom the secrets of the mysterious woods above the farm, and the strange behavior of her cousins and her Uncle Maurice. The plotting is even, with enough hints at the secrets to keep the tension running high. Tess's worry over her future and choosing wisely will resonate with many young people, and her ability to be anything she wishes is a universal dream. As in Switchers (1998) and Midnight's Choice (1999, both Hyperion), Thompson does a great job of creating the world from a rat's point of view. The Pied Piper and fairie world connections are unique to this book and effectively contribute to the trilogy's satisfying conclusion. This book can be read independently, but it will be best enjoyed by readers of the earlier titles, if only to add depth to the drama of Tess's choice.
