The Friday #56  (56% reader)

"Great... er, I mean, terrible," I said. "I had Jake, I mean Mr. Dirksen in my body, hang upside down and drink water until it ran out of his nose and he still doesn't want to be in his own body again."

Why I Like It


An exciting storyline involving a student getting into trouble named Jake Sherman and Mr. Dirksen who is a boring science teacher. I really enjoyed the story because it held my attention, shows empathy for others and I feel it's just right for middle graders. It's a fun, fictional read that is full of humoresque adventures between a dorky science teacher and a student who end up living in each other's body and liking it for awhile... but will they be forever trapped? Read on for the exciting conclusion.

5/5 stars. Recommend it.
