Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Book This is a great book for tweens and is a very good book but Is a little hard to follow at the beggining. I enjoyed it very much. Bascially this book is about two girls who switch destinations like Parent Trap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book! My daughter and I read this book together and she loved it. It's about two girls who, enroute to spend their summer with strangers, discover that they are better suited to switch places. The story tells of their friendship, their adventures and an unlikely friendship that develops with a neighbour. You can imagine how these girls feel in their situation. There are some really funny and cute parts of the story which we enjoyed. My daughter loved it!
