Maddy is a bitter young woman who does nothing to endear herself to the reader for the majority of this book. She is a spoiled young lady who isn’t satisfied with any aspect of her life; and to be honest, I don’t think she really likes HERSELF.
Jennifer, on the other hand, is a lovely young woman that we don’t nearly get to know other than the few bits of her that is shown in her own life and when she switches with Maddy. Maddy, however, is the only one who knows that they’ve switched lives. It is through Maddy’s journey as Jennifer – though they never switch names, just families, which is nice – that we find out that Jennifer’s life is not nearly as rosy as Maddy envisioned.
I highly recommend this to any parent or grandparent or aunt of a young lady who thinks that her life stinks and would be better off if she lived someone else’s life. Through Maddy’s journey of self-discovery and self-realization, Ms. Pearce leads the reader on her own journey of how thankful she should be of the life she’s been given to live and to live it to the fullest.
