Painfully shy Cathy Phillips can't muster the courage to ask hot water polo player, Craig Nelson, on a date. Neither can she stand up to the three biggest snobs at Washington High. What's a girl to do? Could switching lives with a sassy, magical cat be the answer to her wishes?
The "curse" of being "BeSwitched" may just be the most purr-fect secret these new best friends could ever have!

My Review:  
Okay to be quite fair on this book, I know that it is suppose to be some what funny and some what of, well for lack of a better word, witchey. And I was looking for something on the line of Be Witched, you know the tv show. But it was not. 

Snobs, hate, many questions about am I good enough or not. Would it be better if I allowed someone else take over my life? Secrets, black cats, abuse, I thought this book would be just a little bit more fun to read, instead I found myself not liking some of the characters and how the enter action between some were strained. 

Author Molly Snows way of writing at least in this book is way different and some what a little dis heartened. I would not have liked reading this when I was a teen, why you may ask? Well I had enough battles with things with in my growing up years would not like to have thought that the only way I could be any thing would be for some thing or body to switch with me and let them or it to live in my body. I mean, okay I know it is fiction and I know that this is just a book and I have read other fantasy books, but for me this was not one that I would read again. 

I am not saying thou that I might not try another book by author Molly Snow. Just saying this one was not for me. And that is my opinion.

So for the reasons above, I am giving this book my Breath of Life Rating of:

Two Clock Rating:  
Disclosure: I did not receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
