Synopsis: What if you went to sleep plain and woke up beautiful--or vice versa?

An "Ugly Betty" and a Popular Beauty wind up trading faces--and lives--and the situation is not what either one expected!

When 15-year-old Darcy Doane wakes up as Cybil Sheffield, she is thrilled. Cybil is everything Darcy has ever wanted to be. Pretty. Popular. Only... all the attention isn't exactly what Darcy expected. Especially when her own brother, Joey, is crushing on her. Gross.  But then there's Devon, the real Cybil's boyfriend....

Cybil is shocked when she looks in the mirror and sees a face she totally doesn't recognize. She thought not always being the center of attention might be a good thing, but being invisible is hardly bearable. Even her boyfriend, Devon, looks right through her! How can she survive when the only people (except a family of strangers) who even know she's alive are three dipsticks she can't remember ever seeing before? And why hasn't she ever noticed her new "brother," Joey, before?

With the school play, potential boyfriends and an A-List party coming up, Darcy and Cybil have a lot to work out. There's a learning curve for both of them, especially after they are caught fighting at school and forced by the principal to help her at a Return-to-Work project for displaced women.

Trouble is, how do they get their own lives back? And who ends up with what guy?

My Review: In this book we have out typical girl who wishes she wer more popular and had this amazing boyfriend and the girl she wishes she were like is dating him. What was pretty atipycal was that the popular girl wasn't all that hot on the attention. I liked that twist from the start and I think this novel is definitely a decent read. it's a quick 2 hours maybe 3 read. It's definitely fun and I liked the way the girls expressed themselves. I liked the whole Freaky friday swapping thing except... well I liked how we really got to see the issues that teenage girls face every day and how they handle them. I also really liked the aspect that they could wear. quite literally, someone else's shoes and maybe next time they won't be so quick to judge.
