This is the third book by Jody Kihara that I have read, and each has proven to be better than her previous work. Switching is, in my opinion, her most complex and intriguing work. This YA sci-fi thriller is well written in the first person, and will immerse readers in the problems of a lost teen forced to live on the streets and fend for herself..

Switching is a, starkly realistic, contemporary urban fantasy. Terry has no control over when she switches. At any moment, she faces being yanked through time to wake up in another year, which often finds her in a range of inconvenient places: jail cells, other people’s houses, libraries, or on a park bench.

Terry has the added problem that she can’t remember anything about her past life before the switching began about eight months prior to our joining in her time travels.  She’s trying to find home, and yet doesn’t even know if she has a home or parents.

Alone, and sure that she is hallucinating or going crazy, Terry meets other time travelers. Can they help her get home? Are they friends, or do they have agendas of their own?

Bring a box of tissues with you for the surprising ending.I highly recommend “Switching” for all Young Adult and Adult readers. You won’t be able to put this book down.

You can snag a copy of Jody’s books on Amazon.
