Rose has changed. She still lives in the same neighborhood and goes to the same high school with the same group of kids, but when she woke up today, something was a little different. Her clothes and hair don’t suit her anymore. The dogs who live upstairs are no longer a terror. She wants to throw a party—this from a girl who hardly ever spoke to her classmates before. There’s no more sadness in her life; she’s bursting with happiness.

But something still feels wrong to Rose. Because until very recently, she was an entirely different person—a person who’s still there inside her, just beneath the thinnest layer of skin.


"But I know exactly who she is, the girl thought, as the door closed. It was clear as day. She's the girl I could've been, if life was fair." (quote)

Fellow book lovers, don't turn away! There isn't much of a straight giveaway as to what this book is about that's given in the synopsis, but I'll tell you that this is book is about so much more than you might think.

For starters, it was about a young troubled teen, who needed an escape, but was tired of the life that she was living. It's about replacing yourself, losing yourself, and finding a way to regain what you lost and might never back again. It's about two different people...who are the same person.

Change Places With Me is a compelling novel with a plot full of mystery and wonder. I was amazed that there was so much more to this book than what I assumed based on the surface. It was actually a really great read with a somewhat connection to the story of Snow White, but with the author's own twist.

Rose was an interesting character to be reading about. We get introduced to her as Rose from the very beginning and we learn her personality and we meet Evelyn (her stepmother). Overall, I thought that Rose was a mystery. Her movements throughout the book only caused more suspicion and added to mystery of the entire book.

This is a story about self discovery, figuring out how to live life with every stone that gets thrown into it.

I recommend this book and I hope that you choose to read Change Places With Me, I promise that you will not regret it one bit!
