Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Hadley is pretty much the model student: straight As, perfect attendance, front row in class. So what if she's overstressed and overscheduled: She's got school covered. (Life--not so much.)</p> <p>Ms. Pitt is the kind of teacher who wants you to call her by her first name and puts all the chairs in a circle and tells her students to feel their book reports.</p> <p>Hadley wishes Ms. Pitt would stick to her lesson plan. Ms. Pitt wishes Hadley would lighten up.</p> <p>So when Hadley and Ms. Pitt find themselves switched into each other's bodies, the first thing they want to do is switch right back. It takes a family crisis, a baffled principal, and a (double) first kiss to help them figure out that change can be pretty enlightening.</p> <p>Even if it is a little freaky!</p>

Horn Book Review

Uber-focused thirteen-year-old Hadley forgets to prepare for her To Kill a Mockingbird oral presentation. She can't imagine anything worse--except maybe switching bodies with her "wannabe-hippie" English teacher, Ms. Pitt. In this companion to Rodgers's classic Freaky Friday, frequent pop culture references try too hard and detract from the story. However, hysterics gratifyingly abound in the mixed-up scenarios.
