The betty book review: Changers by T Cooper & Allison Glock

Genre: Fantasy/Romance/LGBT

Absorbency rating: Regular

Quote:

Okay, I’ll say it. The bar is lower for boys. I know for girl-born-girls this isn’t news. But for us newbies, it is a real awakening to have your hand up in pre-algebra waiting so long to get called on that the blood starts to pool in your neck. Mrs Walsh must have asked every single boy in the room for their answers before she even considering calling on me… Let’s see what else? Ah yes. When a guy makes a joke in class, the girls always laugh. It could be the lamest punch line in the universe, and still, here come the ha-has… Also, girls aren’t allowed to eat. Ever.

Like skinny jeans or Beyonce’s dressing room, this book can be a little hard to get into. But the initial premise is super intriguing – a group of people called ‘Changers’ who, for the last four years of high school, spend each year in a different body. This is the first installment of a four part series, telling the story of Ethan, who wakes up one morning as Drew, a pretty blonde girl with wide eyes.

If you can stick with it, the second half of the book explores ideas of gender and sexuality in a brilliant, creative way that we’ve never seen before. Yay for fluidity! Just remember pay attention.

Changers, Book One: Drew, T Cooper & Allison Glock, £6.99
