A Fresh Look at Trading Places!

The newly released "Transfer Student", Laura A. H. Elliott, puts a whole new spin on the Freaky Friday/Trading Places theme.  Rhoe and Ashley are two teenagers from totally different planets.  When they both wish upon a star for things to change the starjumping machine that Rhoe built allows them to switch places.

Rhoe is a teenage boy on planet Retha and a self proclaimed 'quark' (or nerd in earth-speak).  Ashley is the popularity queen of Beverly Hills High School.  They are both shocked when they discover that they are inhabiting the body of someone of the opposite sex.  As they struggle to learn the ways of their new planets, family and friends they uncover what is really important.

"Transfer Student" is an engaging young adult read that adults can enjoy as well.  Laura richly described planet Retha and it comes alive for the reader.  The characters are well developed and very relate-able.  The novel is now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
