Reeling from the aftershocks of "The Hot-Tub Incident," American party girl Tasha jumps at the chance to spend a semester at tweedy Oxford University - banking on the fact that the tabloid stories about her won't have made their way across the Pond. But Tasha starts to question her judgment when she finds herself Uggs-deep into feminist theory and unpopular with the university's intellectual student body. Meanwhile, studious control freak Emily, reeling from a romantic incident of her own, decides she'd like a change, too. Disappointing her snooty British family, who would rather see her at Harvard than UC Santa Barbara, Emily throws herself into film classes - not to mention bikinis and beer pong. Her English accent gets her plenty of attention, but not all of it is welcome - especially the frustrating confrontations with a male classmate. Thrust into lives as opposite from their own as possible, Tasha and Emily's only hope may lie in each other. Will their combined intelligence be enough to get them through their sophomore year switch? Download and start listening now!

    " This book was enjoyable and funny - it's not meant to be read as high literature. I liked Emily's character especially, as I related to her a lot more than Tasha, but liked the way that Tash developed. However there was one thing that really annoyed me, and that was Tasha and Will at the end. I know Will said some horrible things to her, but come on, how did it look? She didn't bother explaining to him that it was a once-off bad decision she made - he assummed (quite reasonably) that she was the kind of girl that slept with different guys all the time and she was just using him. And then Tasha was all like 'Good riddance, I'm too good for you.' So she really annoyed me at the end. But other than that I liked this book. "

    " It was intriguing and wonderful. Later on in the chapters, I felt a little suspense. This book was very exiting to read. "Now let's enjoy the sun in Florida and eat these magnificent donuts." "

    " When in teen fiction one finds oneself presented with two diametrically opposed characters, say an academically challenged party girl and a control-freak nerd, one usually expects the author to come down hard on one side or the other, extolling either the virtues of endless study or the need for everyone to just lighten the hell up already. Rarely does an author bother to take the time to deconstruct both stereotypes into real characters who realize they've got a lot to learn from each other. Even more rarely does an author do that and manage to make it fun. McDonald's cover blurb makes it clear she (rightly) views this as feminist fiction, which has me doing backflips a little after ages and ages of teen paranormal romances that cede all the power to their male characters, but don't let that fool you into expecting Simone de Beauvoir. Frothy and enjoyable, but with a Girl Power punch to it. "
