Good girl, honour-roll lifer, Berkeley-bound, mildly neurotic, high-strung twelfth grader Andrea Birch just wants a bit of privacy. Oh, and perhaps a bit more of a social life. Or just a life in general. But when your mom and dad are foster parents who can’t turn away a child, trying to carve out a little space for yourself while tending to the needs of everyone from twin toddlers to angst-ridden adolescents is nearly impossible. And then Joules Adams, the daughter of internationally famous rock star Nigel Adams, jumps into Andrea’s car, setting off an improbable car chase that ends in detention.
For Andrea, it’s the last straw. Why is it that Joules, breaker of all rules, living a life of luxury, gets off so easy? Why does she have everything, including a cool famous dad, while Andrea has nothing, not even her parents’ full attention?
In a modern, hip take on the classic Freaky Friday story, Tish Cohen delivers a fresh look at wishing you had someone else’s life.
