Annabel Andrews is tired of her mother telling her what to do. She’s tired of being told to do her homework, clean up her room, and be nice to her little brother, Ape Face. If she were an adult, she could do anything she wanted, like watch TV all day and eat marshmallows for breakfast.
One Friday morning, Annabel’s wish comes true when she wakes up and realizes she’s turned into her mother! But after a major washing machine mishap, losing Ape Face, and a terrible teacher conference, Annabel starts to suspect that being an adult is not as much fun as it seems. One thing’s for certain–this is one freaky Friday she’ll never forget! Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlinleah | 2/11/2014

    " one of the BEST BOOKS EVER. I forgot how much i loved it then I found it on my grandma's bookshelf and read it for my weekend on the farm. Oh my goodness i loved it just as much as the first 15 summers i spent reading it. a classic. i should see the movie sometime, just to see how awful it is compared to the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amie | 2/4/2014

    " a light cute read; I read this in high school. (the movie that came out a couple of years ago with Lindsey Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis is pretty well done too) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 1/30/2014

    " Meh. This book hasn't aged well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Farah | 1/20/2014

    " Again this book cracked me up. Some of the conversations are hilarious. I rather enjoyed reading it and revisiting my girlhood! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberlayy º | 1/19/2014

    " This was a cute book. A pretty easy read, I finished in in less than a day. The character is cute and has spunk. But with seeing the movie beforehand, I was somewhat confused because the book has a completely different story line. Now, I do not blame the author. I blame Disney. BOO! HISS! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 1/5/2014

    " Read as a kid. Liked it, liked the movie. (the Jody Foster one) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy Roberts | 1/5/2014

    " My sister Anna and I loved this book when we were kids...but I found it didn't play quite so well for Isabel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hillary | 1/3/2014

    " it was fine. it was dated. i don't remember the original movie being much like this. i also learned that mary rodgers contributed to the writing of "Free To Be You and Me" which makes investing the time in this very light book (more juvy than YA) worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ivy | 1/2/2014

    " It was really diferent from the movie but still good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MsThomas | 12/17/2013

    " A teen classic - if you haven't read it, you should. Watching the movie doesn't count. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 elissa | 11/15/2013

    " I remember discovering this one on the paperback racks at my very tiny local library, probably when I was working on my books for the summer reading program. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shari | 11/6/2013

    " I loved this book as a kid. I read it several times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richelle | 9/24/2013

    " Interesting to read a book like this that was written 40 years ago. The language is a bit surprising and really speaks of the times. It is also interesting to compare this to the movie. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ashtyn | 9/15/2013

    " nothing to really say.......... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorie | 9/8/2013

    " This was fun and original when I read it years ago. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 R. | 4/23/2013

    " I had such a boyhood crush on Jodie Foster. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 1/13/2013

    " I bought this for my 11 year old niece and re-read it before giving it to her...I forgot how much I loved this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joana | 11/25/2012

    " So basically Anna thinks her mom is ruining her life. 1 morning they switched body. Now Anna is in her moms body and her mom is in her daughter body. They each found out its not easy being each other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 6/30/2012

    " I'm old enough to have read the original hardcover edition of this book. I actually didn't understand some of it (like some of the slightly more sophisticated conversations), as it was a bit too old for me at the time, but loved it anyhow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 4/21/2012

    " This book was confusing but I read it in 6th grade! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tori | 12/30/2011

    " Much better than the movie, (the new one with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis). If you've seen the old movie, you'll realize it's a bit more like that, but not completely. It's a fun, light read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sally | 12/6/2011

    " A short, quick read. I much preferred the film; this is the sort of story that you need to see. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AmyK | 12/3/2011

    " Very different from the movie "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jane Marie | 10/9/2011

    " This book bears very little resemblance to the movie. This is one of the few cases where I like the movie better. There are raciest words in it and the phrase "Unless you are a retard". Honestly, how can a decent person keep this kind of book in the school library? I'm pulling it out tomorrow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rhiannon20 | 7/10/2011

    " What a weird book! This book didn't have enough introduction to make sense, and the characters wern't realistic at all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 5/4/2011

    " It was fun to read where it all started. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 4/20/2011

    " This was an Ok book. I liked the movie better. This would be good to use in a move/ book compare and contrast. There are a good number of alikes and differences that the project would be sucessful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julianna | 4/11/2011

    " I read this book with Jacob. It definately wasn't as good as I remembered and it wasn't Jacobs favorite.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 4/3/2011

    " I thought I'd read this book as a kid, but I didn't remember most of what happened. Ellie enjoyed it. "
