Thirteen-year-old Hadley Fox (I so love her name!) is not your average eighth grader. She has a 4.3 GPA (I know, makes me feel terrible for my grades in school!), studies like crazy, and constantly has her nose in a book. Hadley, even at 13, strives for Stanford as her college destination, but the one thing she also strives to do is become her gorgeous, loved-by-everyone older sister, Tatum. Matters turn horrifying for Hadley when she forgets to write down an assignment in her "Super Student Planner Plus" and her whole world seems to collapse around her. Said assignment is an oral report for none other than Tatum's favorite teacher, Ms. Pitt; the hippie, eccentric, over-involved teacher who prefers to be called Carol that Hadley can't stand. As Ms. Pitt makes Hadley try to wing her report and allows her a change in topic, something happens. In the Freaky Friday, Lindsay Lohan/Jamie Lee Curtis fashion, they finish a sentence together, the room shakes (which only they feel), and then they are transformed. This couldn't happen on any worse of a day for either of the two protagonists since today is the first time in months Hadley's crush has spoken to her, and there is the first I-Hate-Mondays DANCE! As for Ms. Pitt (yes, I too can't help but giggle), it is her meeting with the school board to become the head of the English department. Things seem to run amok between both character's lives from family, to love, to even careers, and not quite as smoothly as either would hope. You should also note that there are more correlations between this book and the Freaky Friday movie than there were between the FREAKY FRIDAY book and movie versions, but that's not necessarily a bad thing in this case. I was amused from start to finish because of Hadley from her description of Tatum, which includes this little nugget, "In movies, brunette is code for "friend" and blonde translates to "girlfriend." But this movie logic isn't my reality." And that's just the beginning. We see movies and bands that most will probably notice, and bands that were totally made up (Sketched-Out Boy for example), but either way this is a quick, adorable, and quite amusing read. And it also reminds you that teachers have feelings, lives, and, most of the time, they do actually care. Anyone that is still in school, or even those out of school, should totally read this story. Surprisingly, Hadley, Ms. Pitt, Tatum, and even the more minor characters can teach you something that you probably wouldn't have thought about before, and I mean that in a good way.

Trotting along soon after their hugely popular Freaky Friday these authors again entertain young readers/listeners with Freaky Monday. And, this really is an outre day! Young Hadley should be any teacher's dream student - she's almost perfect. Never misses a day at school, is always prepared, alert, and attentive, even to sitting in the front row eager to answer any questions posed. While she rates an A in academic her personal life is a bit off kilter. Hadley is a bit up tight. Her teacher, Ms. Pitt, is not at all rigid. She'd be delighted to have her students call her by her first name, and she wants them to relax, sit in circles and emotionally respond to their assignments. Hadley finds this strange and wishes Ms. Pitt would be more traditional. Well, imagine the surprise, consternation and laughter evoked when a dramatic change takes place - the two find themselves changed into each other's bodies. Now, that's truly freaky. Mary Rodgers has written several books for young readers (including, of course, Freaky Friday, which was made into two movies). She has a rare, infectious humor as does her cohort, Heather Hach. Jennifer Stone delivers an A+ voice performance of the story, bring appropriate amounts of vigor, surprise, and discombobulation to the voices as the story unfolds. - Gail Cooke

My 9 year old grand-daughter carefully selected this book for herself during a visit to a B&N store. I could not get her to look up until she had finished reading the book, so I would say the story is interesting and enjoyable for a curious child around this age.
