Now You See Her Reviews
I won this book as part of a goodreads giveaway.
"Now You See Her" is a body-swap thriller involving Amelia, a lower class scrub from a single parent household who's obsessed with tennis and with winning tennis, and Sophie, the squeaky clean carefully presented upper class tennis star. When Sophie hits Amelia, who's trying to get away from a kidnapper one stormy night, they're both injured: Sophie gets a concussion while Amelia winds up in a coma. When "Sophie" wakes up, though, it's Amelia who's ...more
I received this book as an advanced reader's copy for our young adult collection at the library. I could not put this book down. The character development between Amelia and Sophie and all of their friends were easy to relate to because they were so close to real-life actions. Just when you thought the story was going one direction with the plot, it takes an unexpected turn and you can't help to find out what happens next. Young Adults these days need more compelling, edge of your seat type of r ...more
I really enjoyed this.
I can't resist a body-swap book, but thought this could have swapped out a few plot elements for a better story.
Two girls - one privileged, the other the child of a struggling single mother - face off on the tennis court. After the match, there's an accident, the two girls swap bodies, and one ends up in a coma. The remaining girl, in the wrong body, has to solve the mystery of what happened and how to get them switched back.
I love body swap books. I've read a lot of them, and think this one co ...more
Thank you Edelweiss and Harper Collins for allowing me to read an ARC in return for an honest review.
This was a nice little read. The mystery was very predictable, and the all the characters were pretty boring, and the ones that weren't boring were unlikable, but the plot itself is interesting and I'd recommend reading it for that alone.
I really liked The Liar Society books by sisters Lisa and Laura Roecker. Now You See Her is written by those same sisters under their married names. I have no idea why they are not promoting the fact that they are the same duo. It would have made me race to read this book.
Now You See Her is a standalone Young Adult contemporary mystery. The story is about two 17 year old high school seniors Amelia and Sophie. They both play tennis for their school.

It started out very promising and I was surprised that the body swap happened so quickly. At first, the two girls seemed so different but little clues are dropped along the way hinting at that supposed connection. I was a bit disappointed about the conclusion which appeared a bit too anti-climatic and was resolved way too easily. Could have been better.
