This story is told from Max's point of view, and I found that very important. Most times when we read bully stories they are told from the victim. Max, on the other hand, was not the victim and even played a role in bullying JD. When we first meet him, he is just the normal teenager and we witness his bullying. But once he is thrown into JD's body, we witness a complete transformation. I felt sorry for him as he realized what mistakes he made and felt his change of heart was genuine. He grew into a very strong, likable character. As for JD, I connected with him instantly. Even though his life was one of complete torture, he still kept things to himself and didn't say a word as to protect his mother. He cared deeply about Izzy and wanted to protect her but didn't know how. I honestly wasn't sure how he kept living day to day because I don't think I would have survived his life for very long. The message in this book was one that I don't think teenagers and young kids can hear enough: you don't know what someone's life is like, don't bully and don't judge. This is a story that needs to be told again and again. Gammon has found a very unique and interesting way to get this message across. I can't recommend this book enough. Not just for kids either, adults too. Everyone should take some time to read Max and JD's story and hopefully a difference will be made.

“Souls in Peril” ~Sherry Gammon At first glance, one gets a good idea of what this book is pertaining to. The cover displays a boy with duct tape covering his mouth. By the end of the book, you’ll be ready to seal your own mouth shut. What an amazing story of bullying and the effect it has on one’s own character make-up. It’s applicable to everyone, the young or old, student or teacher, parent or child. As this topic has been hot in the media and drilled into students from elementary age on, my desire to read this book was driven by my firsthand accounts of bullying. Who can help but love Port Fare’s all star baseball hero, Max and head cheerleader, Emma. They are the ideal couple in every high school. Their lives seem perfect. Their families are perfect. They have only just begun… right? *Spoiler Alert – Whenever you read a book that captivates you and grips you in the first chapter as this book did, you have to read on. But, when the star character dies at the beginning and is given the chance to go back to his own high school in another’s body... well, there is just no putting this book down. The author, Sherry Gammon, has wonderful character development. I loved the way she stayed true to their form and personality despite the “personality collision”. It was wonderful to reflect upon my own personality and habits. What would someone else do if they inhabited my body? How would I change someone else if I inhabited them? Gammon did a wonderful job inducing self reflection and directional mind changes. I could not put this book down. This book is a must read for everyone, everywhere. It’s not just applicable to students or children. Bullying exists in every facet of our existence. I highly recommend this book. Diane Workman
