    "Switched!" is the 5th book in the "TJ and the Time Stumblers" series by Bill Myers. It continues the story of mishaps and adventures that junior higher T.J. Finkelstein experiences as a result of her from-the-future companions Herby and Tuna and all their 23rd century gadgets and inventions. 

    In this installment, they learn a valuable lesson about empathy, compassion and forgiveness as they "walk a mile" in other's shoes as a result of a body-switching gizmo. TJ begins to understand that the life of her adversary, Hesper Breakaheart, is not all sunshine and rainbows, and the futuristic Herby and Tuna learn why their archenemy is out to get them. 

    As far as the series goes, this is probably the second best "moral to the story" but it unfortunately feels like each book gets a little more obnoxious than the last. I didn't really enjoy "Switched!" but because I did appreciate the moral and practical lessons in it, I am giving it 3 stars. :)

    TJ's visitors from the 23rd century are still around, and causing trouble as usual. They accidently have TJ and her archenemy, Hester, switch bodies, and that leads to trouble.

    I thought this book was good and crazy like the others in the series. TJ learns a lesson in kindness after she realizes what Hester's life is like.

    Predictable.

    This book felt like a replay of most of the other Time Stumblers books. They're zany and zonked as usual, but Myers' is running out of ideas for TJ and her friends. The lessons are still good ones, but the writing and scenarios created felt like a rerun instead of a new episode.
