Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: As punishment for breaking into their high school to watch the solar eclipse, Ezra, his crush Imogen, Ezra's best friend Holden, and Imogen's best friend Wynonna must perform in the school's production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, but before the first rehearsal starts, socially inept Ezra and badass Wynonna wake up in each other's bodies.
Ezra is obsessing over Imogen, and wants to ask her to the prom. But her protective best friend, Wynonna, acts like a human shield between them. Then, on the night of a total solar eclipse, Ezra and Wynonna wake up in each other’s bodies. As they swap back and forth every day, Ezra discovers Wynonna's crush on his friend, Holden. Ezra makes a proposition: while swapping bodies, he will help her win Holden's heart... if she helps him woo Imogen. -- adapted from jacket

    Preston (Neanderthal Opens the Door to the Universe, 2018) has poured his heart and soul into this latest contemporary novel, which is inspired by Shakespeare's Twelfth Night (and other mistaken-identity classics). When high-school junior Ezra and his best friend, Holden, run into Ezra's longtime crush, Imogen, and her best friend, Wynonna, breaking into school the night of the solar eclipse, the truly unthinkable happens: Ezra and Wynonna swap bodies. After Ezra accidentally discovers Wynonna's burning crush on Holden, he and Wynonna form a tenuous pact to help each other woo their respective crushes. Through their body-swapping, Ezra and Wynonna uncover each other's secrets and learn that "there was something about caring for someone—genuinely caring for them—that made you forget yourself. That made you realize you were part of something bigger. That you were important. That you were loved." This is an intricate and gorgeously plotted novel that blurs the lines between gender and sexuality, and absolutely oozes with empathy and compassion. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

Preston Norton is: bisexual, slightly genderqueer, married. His partner, Erin, is trying to put him on a diet, and he's revolting (both contexts apply). He has taught seventh grade and ninth grade English, mentored drug addicts, and mowed lawns (in no particular order). He is obsessed with 2001: A Space Odyssey and Quentin Tarantino.
