I have to give it a three...
I suspect I give it a three because I may not be the demographic the book is geared towards. I suspect it was more of a young adult/ Jr. High type read. So I'm a little leery of reviewing it. I found the actual switcher parts to be brilliantly written. I wanted more of that. The story that it became about halfway through was just a bit over the top....I still enjoyed it but the story, other than the switching, was just not for me. The descriptions of when Tess was a rat, or a bird, or other animal was actually quite brilliant writing. The civilization saving action was just too over the top for me.
Like I say though, if I had read this in 8th or 9th grade, I probably would have given it 4.5 stars.
