With one random wish, Jack and Ellie switch places. He's her. And she's him. And they're taking on middle school dramas they'd never even considered.
Ellie assumed popular guys didn't worry about body image, being perfect, or talking to girls, but acting like you're cool with everything is tougher than it looks.
Jack thought girls had it easy — no fights with bullies, no demanding dads, no power plays — but facing mean girls at sleepovers and getting grilled about your period is way harder than taking a hit to the face at sports practice.
Told in both Jack's and Ellie's voices, The Swap offers a fresh and honest take on tween friendship, all while exploring more serious themes of family, loss, empathy, and what it really means to be yourself.
