Flip, by Martyn Bedford is about a boy named Alex who one day mysteriously wakes up in someone else's bed, in someone else's house, in a different part of the country, and 6 months further in time than he was just the night before. He has no idea where he is or whose house he is in, he only knows that he must figure it out fast. After he gets up from bed, he sees himself in the mirror. The reflection staring back is not his face, body or anything. Alex is a totally different person! As the first day of being trapped in this other boy's body he discovers where he is and what he boy's name is. Philip, Flip for short. The setting is in Leeds, England in present day.
Some terms and phrases in this book may be hard for some to understand since the author is British. For me, I understood all of the phrases and terms because I have friends that currently live in Ireland and they say the same things. I never thought that I would like any other books besides the Pretty Little Liars series (I'm not a big reader) but this is the first book I've read that I've actually really liked.
As Alex, or "Flip" discoverers who he is, he must also try to find a way home and back to himself before it's too late to change himself back to Alex.
I would recommend this book for girls and boys of the ages 13 to 18. The book is about youth so I think the youth would enjoy it best!
