    Addie Asante, a fifth-grader, is the middle child between Sophie, a high-achieving seventh-grader, and Camille, an energetic member of the pre-K class at her sisters' school. One morning, Addie opens a package containing a bracelet that she slips onto her wrist without reading the warning not to make a wish while wearing it. Fed up with her siblings, she arrives at school and wishes she wasn't in the middle between her sisters. Immediately, she transforms into Sophie, whose teacher waves her into a seventh-grade classroom. Meanwhile, Camille finds herself looking like Addie and enjoying fifth grade, while Sophie-as-Camille looks miserable in pre-K. Attractive grayscale illustrations portray the main characters within their family and at their school. Using a body switch to enlighten characters about others' viewpoints isn't new, but the writing here provides welcome humor as well as insights. And while the bracelet adds a spark of magic, Addie's first-person narrative is primarily realistic, particularly when portraying the three sisters. Book two in the Best Wishes series is engaging and fun. Grades 3-5. Copyright 2023 Booklist Reviews.
