Can't Wait Wednesday
Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Tressa @ Wishful Endings. This meme is based on Waiting on Wednesday that was hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. It's where we share an unpublished book we are anticipating.
I've read two books by Jessica Brody and enjoyed them quite a bit. The ones I've read are My Life Undecided and Karma Club. I will note that it's been a while since I read these two, but I do think Karma Club had drinking in it and could have had some cursing. I'm not sure. It's been a while. The book I'm anticipating is Middle Grade, so I hope it will be a clean read. Unfortunately, you just don't know anymore.
Anyway, I absolutely adore this cover and love the movie Freaky Friday movie with Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan.

Summary from Good Reads
It's Freaky Friday meets Hannah Montana when two twelve-year-old girls--one a famous TV star, the other an obsessive fan--switch bodies with hilarious and disastrous results.
Ruby Rivera is a twelve-year-old superstar with millions of followers. Skylar Welshman is a seventh grader who wants to be cool--and she's Ruby's biggest fan. When Skylar and Ruby meet on the set of Ruby's hit show, Ruby of the Lamp, and wish they could switch places . . . it happens!
Now Ruby is living Skylar's life--going to a normal school, eating fro-yo, sleeping in, texting boys . . . it's amazing. And being Ruby is even better than Skylar imagined--her fancy closet is huge, everyone wants to be her friend, and she gets to spend every day with Ryder Vance, her dreamy costar. Life is a blast!
But when Ruby finds herself dealing with mean girls and Skylar discovers that being a celebrity isn't all red-carpet glamour, the girls start to wonder if being yourself isn't so bad after all. Can they swap bodies again? Or are they stuck being each other forever?
