One morning fourteen-year-old Alex wakes up to find himself in the wrong bedroom, in an unfamiliar house, in a different part of the country. Six months have disappeared overnight. The family at the breakfast table? Total strangers.

And when he looks in the mirror, another boy’s face stares back. A boy named Philip, known as Flip. Unless Alex finds out what’s happened and how to get back to his own life, he’ll be trapped forever inside a body that belongs to someone else.

Martyn Bedford’s debut novel for young adults is fearless and fast-paced, a riveting psychological thriller about a boy coming undone in the most extraordinary of circumstances.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MissHancock | 2/20/2014

    " great, gripping book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/8/2014

    " It was pretty good but I don't understand why you would want to go back to a comatose state when you are being offered a healthy body in exchange. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Shields | 2/5/2014

    " Great book, I was expecting a bleaker ending, something more in tune with the other PE victims stories added to the end of the novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia | 2/1/2014

    " This book just blew me away. Not only did it turn out the book I've always wanted to read, but the book I've always wanted to WRITE--I felt that it was totally plausible, the way the M.C. Alex felt throughout the book, his ups and downs and ultimately his decision on how to reverse the flip. The ending was just a tad bit rushed I thought, but it worked marvelously, no matter what. Can't wait to read more from Martyn Bedford! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhonda | 2/1/2014

    " This is a fabulous YA mystery. I never ever read the last pages of a book before I'm done, and although I was able to resist the temptation with this book, it wasn't easy. I was dying to know how it would end. Bedford suggests some thought provoking themes in this book as well: what is the soul? What aspects of the human experience define us as individual beings? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 1/25/2014

    " I had a hard time getting into this one, which is funny because it is on some best of the year lists! I did skim through the entire thing to see how and what happened in the end, but I am glad I didn't spend too much time on it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 1/10/2014

    " Interesting premise, but not enough action for most young people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arleen | 12/25/2013

    " I really enjoyed the writing and the plot, it's an easy reading book, and the end it's pretty good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelle | 12/10/2013

    " Another strange idea-waking up in someone else's body. Interesting idea. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie | 11/29/2013

    " Fantastic! Could not put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Juu | 11/10/2013

    " Not bad interesting story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheryl | 10/19/2013

    " Alex Gray awakens one morning to find himself in the body of Phillip Garamond. Six months have passed since his last memory of Alex. He must discover what happened to Alex's body and figure out if he can ever get back. An intriguing, entertaining story about his search for identitiy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 5/11/2013

    " This is a funny and profound novel about the nature of the human soul. I highly recommend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Duncan Prescott | 11/2/2012

    " An astounding premise and handled quite well. An excellent resolution. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 7/15/2012

    " It was really tempting to skip ahead and peek at the ending, but I'm glad I didn't. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marilyn | 5/27/2012

    " The book had a good idea, but I had a hard time with the plodding plot. How many ways did the author have to tell us that Alex was uncomfortable in Phillip's body? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 3/9/2012

    " A serious take on the old body-switching plot that Hollywood does and re-does every few years. Lots of food for thought on identity and self and for teachers, plenty of fodder for classroom discussion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victor Leal | 3/5/2012

    " i thought it was pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryann | 2/28/2012

    " What would it be like to be you, but in someone else's body & life? Well-handled take on the answer to this question. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jontelle | 8/28/2011

    " Loved it. Apart from the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen Landon | 8/20/2011

    " Interesting premise, well written, character we sympathize with. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 6/9/2011

    " Very exciting and enjoyable. The writing is a little over explained and clumsy at times, perhaps because it was the author's first young adult novel. I would definitely recommend this for teens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 R | 5/7/2011

    " I really liked this book, i've read these kind of books before but this one as pretty good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 4/29/2011

    " Thriller about a teen guy who wakes up in a body that's not his own! Set in Britain, which may discourage some teens (but not me, the Angophile that I am). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 4/27/2011

    " A serious take on the old body-switching plot that Hollywood does and re-does every few years. Lots of food for thought on identity and self and for teachers, plenty of fodder for classroom discussion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 4/6/2011

    " Soul "flipping" - from one body to another - interesting idea. Well-explored in this YA book. "
