The Switch

A darkly comic fantasy thriller by Anthony Horowitz. Rich kid Tad is spoilt and thoughtless; the boy who has everything. But one night he wishes he could be someone else – and wakes up in the body of Bob Snarby, a petty crook living in the shabbiest funfair imaginable. It’s a squalid place inhabited by hopeless criminals, mysterious fortune tellers and – worst of all – the murderous Finn. But Tad is there for a reason, as he discovers when he begins to untangle a secret that introduces him to the most unexpected enemy of all… Fast-paced, funny and scary, this is a brilliantly entertaining roller-coaster read.
