Synopsis from Goodreads: After spending hundreds of years under the boot-heel of Idis, a frenzied witch, Surla (a magical black cat) decides to run away to find freedom, but there's one catch-- The Black Cats' Rule states it will switch bodies with a lonesome soul.
Cathy, an extremely shy teenage girl, can't muster the guts to ask her crush on a date or stand up to the three biggest snobs at school. What's a girl to do? Could being BeSwitched be the answer to her wishes?
Review: I loved it, it was such a cute book. Cathy is like any teenage girl that doesn't feel like she fits in and is afraid to speak up for herself. She is more comfortable just fading into the background. Then she crosses paths with Surla, who is the complete opposite and takes the switch to Cathy's advantage. Surla, makes her not only stand out and but stand up against the three snooty girls that pick on her everyday. How can any teen not relate to that, seriously it's something all of us have experienced at some point in time whether we were on the receiving or giving end. Surla is so good at being a teenage girl full of spice and spunk. Cathy is content with being a cat, that is until her high school crush suddenly takes interest in her new style and attitude, and Surla's witch Idis is up something that may just be trouble for them all. I loved all the characters, Snow does a great job of making them realistic yet full of humor, and witty sarcasm. Overall, this was such a fun read!
