body trapped Reviews
This poor kid just can't cut a break!I love browsing books in the Kindle store, and I absolutely LOVE that “Download a sample” bit. I’ve been known to download samples left and right, so at times I could have up to 20 samples on my iPad waiting to catch my attention or else get deleted. “Body Trapped” was a sample I downloaded a couple of weeks ago. Let’s just say I read the sample last night and here I am writing up a review. The writing was good, the descriptions were good, the overall feel of the story was good. It seems like a bad dream. You’re involved in a horrible accident and wake up in another person’s body. How do you convince others that you aren’t who they think you are without getting yourself a one-way ticket straight to the funny-farm? Lee and Gary are the two boys involved in the accident. Lee took the full brunt of the injuries and was placed in a coma. However, he awoke in Gary’s body while Gary must be in Lee’s own body. His own parents are forced to sit by the bedside of their son who they’re told won’t wake back up while Gary’s body, with Lee in it, awakens and is eventually sent home with Gary’s family. Lee and Gary’s families couldn’t be more different from one another. Noboy likes him, including his (Gary’s) sister. His mother is an alcoholic. All of his (Gary’s) friends do drugs, smoke, etc. He (Lee), on the other hand, is a good student, kept good grades, and got along well with his parents.I really enjoyed this story. It was shorter than most I read, but that’s probably a good thing or else I’d probably be still reading it. The author did an admirable job in describing how Lee was experiencing life in Gary’s body, how lonely and desperate he was to return to his own. I read this whole book, sample included, in one sitting. Give it a try and I’m sure you’ll do the same! Well worth the money!Can Lee make it back to his own body so he can rejoin his own family? Will Gary’s family ever realize that their son didn’t come home with them after the accident? Gonna have to read it to find out!
Lee is celebrating his 12th birthday. He's gotten a new bike and takes it out for a spin. Unfortunately, he gets in an accident and winds up in the hospital. When he regains consciousness, he is no longer in his own body. Rather, he has traded places with Gary, the 15 year old boy who was also involved in the accident. Lee struggles to let friends and family know what has happened, but no one believes him. He tries to settle into his new life as Gary - but Gary's got some serious problems. Gary is involved with a gang and they think he double-crossed them in a drug deal.Could be a good read for those who want that gritty inner-city gang plot-line.
