As far as anyone at her high school knows, Jill McTeague is an average smart girl trying to get her dream date to ask her to the prom. But what no one knows, except for Jill's mom and dad, is that for the four days Jill is out of school each month, she is not Jill at all. She is Jack, a genuine boy - complete with all the parts - who lives his four days of the cycle in the solitude of Jill's room.

But Jack's personality has been building over the years since the cycling began. He is growing less and less content with his confinement and his cycles are more frequent. Now Jill's question about prom isn't about who she will go with, but who will she be when the big night arrives?

    " Interesting book about gender identity as a teen. Heaven knows there's enough sexual confusion at that age no matter what, when you toss in sexual identity issues it makes for a lot of conflict. I like this book if for no other reason than it opens this discussion. "

    " This story held a lot of promise for exploring gender, but fell far short. I enjoyed the story, but was disappointed that the author relied on stock stereotypes - caricatures, really - for the major actors. Despite that, I'm curious where the story is going and will read the sequel. It was an enjoyable romp, but don't expect much in terms of gender exploration. "

    " For me, Cycler started out as light teen reading, but the book actually improved as the story went along, becoming much more emotionally complex. High school student Jill has a rare, strange problem where on her monthly cycle, she actually physically morphs into a teenage boy named Jack. This "problem" is stated as rather matter-of-fact in the story, which is fun, but when Jack develops a crush on Jill's best girlfriend, and Jill herself crushes on a boy who admits that he is bisexual, well, things get complicated as Jill tries to hide her secret from her friends (while grappling with confusing emotions inside). And, yay! Apparently there is a sequel being written. "

    " Strange and a little disturbing, but compelling enough that I'll read the sequel when it comes out. "

    " A real surprise of a book. Okay, it's difficult to walk around in public reading a book with this cover, but there are always folders you could hide it in, or bigger books. Trust me, it's worth the hassle. This is a bizarre Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde / Cinderella / Frankenstein story for 21st century teens. It deals with identity and sexuality in an entirely unique way. The only negative comment I have is that some of the slang was used way too often and took away from a few scenes. Other than that ... enjoy! "

    " In this comedic take on the body switching plot, there's a twist as mentioned in the summary, which gives the book a fresh look at this used-before plot. Jill's side of the story is a bit bland as it's similar to some other chicklit novels that mainly talk about boys and how to get noticed by them, and then embarrassing situations abound, etc. but is still fairly fun to read because of McLaughlin's humor. But what really makes this novel is Jack's side- he is so very much a boy, and McLaughlin did a fantastic job getting his voice down as well as she did. His voice and plight are compelling to read, but both lead up to a dramatic climax, which had me turning pages so quickly. I was disappointed with the ending until I found out that there would be a sequel, and so it makes more sense now knowing that info, and I'm eagerly anticipating it. So be sure to get this book soon- it'll be easy to find since it's got such a shiny foil cover! "

    " i give this one a big fat meh. it's a YA page turner, for sure, however, if i hear the word "mal" or "you deeply...(insert something here)" one more time.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meghan | 12/4/2013

    " She turns into a boy every month when she gets her period. It would have been better had the girl been less of a stereotype obsessed with the prom. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 11/19/2013

    " This could have been so much better than it was. A cute idea-when a teenage girl gets PMS, she physically changes to a boy for the week.However, the boy has very teenage boy thoughts-too much for this mom! The writing is average; I expected more. "

    " Really interesting book about what it means to be male/female. Really enjoyed the two different voices. Also, surprisingly funny! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ~twilight~ | 8/4/2013

    " Hilarious, with good suspense, plot twists, and believable characters. It's edgy YA, so not for everyone. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie | 6/28/2013

    " Unique premise, but really juvenile storyline. I did not finish the whole book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 6/26/2013

    " I picked up this book after reading the little blurb on the jacket. It was an okay book, definitely a weird plot line and I'm not really happy with the ending even though I know there is a sequel. A good story idea but I think the characters could have been more developed. "

    " this is transgender teen reading at its ridiculous best! "

    " really random... but still pretty good! "
