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!

Would You Switch Bodies With a Girl/Boy?

  • Yes, it would be interesting.
  • No, are you kidding me?
  • Maybe. But you'd have to make me a good deal!
  • Only if I could switch bodies with Lindsay Lohan.

I'm just really mad right now. Don't think I hate you or take anything personally At school all the boys are so annoying and constantly getting in trouble.They tell the girls literally every day how much boys are stronger and faster and can beat up girls and are just in general better. I'm so sick of it! Its literally been proven that girls are smarter than boys. There's so many studies been done on it. Girls do better in school and don't get in trouble as much. And you're stronger and tougher and can beat us up? Oh how many girls have you actually fought? Because I've fought seven boys, and no I didn't start any of them. Guess how those went? Yeah, boys, being strong doesn't really matter when one kick between your legs leaves you crying in a ball on the floor getting laughed at. If a boy hits me I just hit him in the privates and he's down on the ground crying for ten minutes. It's so easy to do and it takes down every boy 100% of the time Yeah so much stronger. lol Sorry everyone. I just needed to rant to some girls to feel better lol.
