Swapped by a Kiss

SWAPPED BY A KISS is out now, published by Corgi Books at Random House Children’s Books.

“This sparkling sequel to SPLIT BY A KISS is a body swap book in the funny tradition of Freaky Friday.”

I wish I wasn’t myself anymore.

I wish I was her.

I wish I was Jo.

When Rachel’s on/off boyfriend goes to a music festival in England, she jumps on a plane to surprise him. But when she gets there, she sees him kissing someone else – their friend Jo. Super-lovely, super-loved, all-round-perfect Jo. Rachel runs away, wishing she could leave her life behind – and she suddenly finds herself in Jo’s body! Can she keep this swap a secret? Can she unravel what’s really going on? Can she get to grips with Jo’s out-of-control curly hair? And if she discovers that being in someone else’s shoes isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, can she ever be herself again?

**Swapped by a Kiss is for sale in all UK bookshops, directly from Random House, on Amazon or with free worldwide delivery at The Book Depository. Swapped by a Kiss is also available as an eBook and for Kindle.**

SWAPPED BY A KISS REVIEWS

MarjoleinBookBlog writes: “Luisa’s newest book is just her very very best. It is very hilarious, and very original. I loved the body swap theme, I have seen it in books and movies before, like Freaky Friday, but I must say I liked this book even better than that movie.”

So Many Books, So Little Time writes: “Swapped by a Kiss is the third – and my favourite – novel by Luisa Plaja. I loved it; it was so much fun!

From author Susie Day’s blog: “…another twisty and touching treat.”

Bookalicious Rambings writes: “If you’ve enjoyed Split by a Kiss, then you’re going to love this one – and if you haven’t read either, then what are you waiting for?! ;)”

5 stars on I Want To Read That: “It is definitely a novel that will bring a big goofy smile to your face. But it is also more than that. The characters felt real and honestly depicted. The romance is really sweet and you can feel a true connection between the couples… I Loved it, Loved it, Loved it!”

I Was A Teenage Book Geek writes: “Swapped By A Kiss is smart, funny and utterly adorable. It’s the kind of book that’ll pick you up when you’re feeling down.”

From The Mile Long Bookshelf: “I loved this novel, it’s amazingly fanbrillitastic! My rating for this book? 5/5 – definitely!”

“Mishaps, some very funny scenes, misunderstandings and a dawning enlightenment build apace through the story.” – Chris Brown, School Library Association
