Switcharoundby Lois Lowry
Forced to spend a summer with their father and his "new" family, Caroline, age eleven, and J.P., age thirteen, are given unpleasant responsibilities for which they are determined to get revenge. "The tender, funny story moves rapidly to an auspicious event where the title proves to have more than one meaning." -- Publishers Weekly

"Readers will recognize the feuding siblings from Lowry's One Hundredth Thing About Caroline), although this may be enjoyed independently. Again, Lowry has created realistic, likable characters in plausible, humorous situations. Lowry retains her ear for dialogue; the conversations are snappy and often funny (as is the entire text). Lowry fans will not be disappointed with the Switcharound."--School Library Journal
