    Piper and Sloane both want to be superheroes, and both have superhero skills that will get them there. Together, superstrong Piper and supersmart Sloane could be magic, but they aren't friends and don't plan on it, until a piece of technology brings them together—literally!—when they accidentally swap bodies. As they desperately try to switch back, they also try to keep Sloane's evil grandfather far away from the device. Meanwhile, they face some classic middle-grade struggles: they're trying to win Bruce Wayne's school challenge (the prize is a trip to Antarctica!); Piper wants to see her missing parents; and Sloane wants to work around real scientists. Will they be able to keep everything straight so that justice can be done and one of them can win the prize? The artwork is cute, colorful, and very well detailed. The panels are easy to follow and will draw readers into the quick and quirky story. A great read for those who are ready for some new superheroes in the DCU. Grades 3-6.
