Simon and Polly have similar submissive personalities and the lack of confidence to stand up for themselves is making their lives a living hell. So when they are given the opportunity to swap lives with other people, they both jump at the chance of leaving their lives behind to live more glamorous and exciting lives, regardless of the hellish consequences.
Although some may find the pace of this book a little slow to begin with, it slowly builds up to setting the perfect timing for a story that could easily be adapted into a script. I really liked the clever way author Carol E. Wyer leaves the reader in suspense at the cliffhanger endings of the chapters, leading the reader into the unexpected. This added with a good injection of humour to the story makes it a highly amusing and entertaining read.
