Tom and Emma are classmates who switch bodies. They have to learn everything about themselves and their friends but do they switch back? Read on...

Title: Gender Blender
Author: Black Nelson
Ages: 9+
Rating: 5


Gender Blender is a book about two sixth graders who switch bodies, but that's not the interesting part. The two used to be friends when they were younger but as they got older they went their separate ways. This book is all about what they learn about each other and the opposite sex. Find out if Gender Blender is worth a read!


Girl vs. Boy

Tom Witherspoon and Emma Baker don't like each other but Emma does like the cutest guy in the sixth grade, Jeff Matthews and Tom likes Kelly Angstrom, the most beautiful girl in the sixth grade. But, during health class Tom and Emma are paired up together to do a report on gender differences. Obviously the two don't like it but one day when they're jumping on a trampoline, they bump into each other and switch bodies, Freaky Friday-style. This is when they start to deal with each other's problems.


Different Bodies

Tom and Emma have to learn how to deal with a lot of things in their new bodies. They have to switch families, friends and lives. The two have to learn to pee, Tom has to learn how to put on a bra, and both of them have to learn how to get along with the other's friends. Through all of this, Emma finds out what Jeff is really like and Tom gets a chance to see Kelly in the P.E. changing room. Confused yet? Don't be. All these mistaken identities make for a real page-turner.


Friendship

While in each other's bodies, Tom and Emma realize what the other gender has to go through. They also realize what goes on in each other's lives. Tom realizes how busy and complicated Emma's life is and Emma learns how complicated Tom's life is but will they ever switch back to their own bodies?


The Bottom Line

You'll totally relate to Gender Blender because it's a funny and interesting read about the trials and tribulations of growing up. If you enjoy books that have comedy, adventure and a great plot twist, then you'll enjoy this one! It's a quick, fun book that's a great alternative to sitting around watching more re-runs!
