|=Amy by Any Other Name, by Maureen Garvie=|
Categories:body swap, female, book
It is not like being a teenager is all that easy to begin with. But
when 15-year-old Amy wakes up in a hospital bed, terribly injured
from a dive onto hidden rocks in a quarry, she must contend with
something unbelievable. True, her body has been shattered, but that
is not the worst of her troubles -- the body she is in is not her
own! An athletic and academic overachiever from a wealthy Toronto
family, Amy has somehow ended up in the body of Krystal, a troubled
girl from North-End Kingston. Of course, no one believes what Amy
says. Her mother in Toronto rejects her calls and threatens action,
while whoever is now in Amy's body remains silent and unreachable.
Amy's drive and determination help her build a new life, but all
she really wants is to find her way back to the one she once had.
Or does she? Amy by Any Other Name is an unusual and compelling
novel about adolescence and identity -- and about the human
capacity to grow and change.
