About the Book
Lavender and Scarlet aren’t friends. Lavender is something of an outcast, and Scarlet is amazingly popular (at least when seen from the outside). Then, on their birthday, they wake up in each other’s bodies...and have to figure out not just how it happened, but how to navigate each other’s lives.
- Scarlet seems to have it all, but what is she missing? Lavender may feel like she has nothing, but what does she have?
- Lavender claims hurtful words do not bother her anymore. Do you think it is possible to protect yourself from mean words?
- Lavender’s favorite song is Goodnight, My Someone. What is your favorite song and why?
- Steve says there is nothing worse than making a fool of yourself. Do you think this is true? Why or why not?
- Rosemary is suspicious of her “sister” when Scarlet is in Lavender’s body. If you traded bodies with someone, who do you think would be the first to figure it out?
- How do Lavender and Scarlet strengthen the relationships with each other’s families?
- If you traded places with someone, who would you want to switch with? What would you miss the most about your real life?
- Lavender finally comes to the realization that she likes herself. Why do you think it was so hard for her to feel this way?
- Lavender says she is not mean, she just tells the truth. Do you think there is a difference between being mean and telling the truth? Explain.
- What do Lavender and Scarlet learn from this experience?
