The Lovereading4Kids comment

Sabine has secret - every night she switches between her two lives. At midnight she slips between her two homes, her two families and her two personalities. In one she is a bright A grade student living in a classy neighbourhood and attending a good school. In the other she lives in a run down house with a loving family who disapprove of her streetwise friends and ebullient social life. Which is the real Sabine? And which would she rather live in? Contrasting the two life styles gives a lot of scope for exploring teenage choices and the reasons for them.

Synopsis

Between the Lives by Jessica Shirvington

For as long as she can remember, Sabine has lived two lives. Every 24 hours she Shifts to her 'other' life - a life where she is exactly the same, but absolutely everything else is different: different family, different friends, different social expectations. In one life she has a sister, in the other she does not. In one life she's a straight-A student with the perfect boyfriend, in the other she's considered a reckless delinquent. Nothing about her situation has ever changed, until the day when she discovers a glitch: the arm she breaks in one life is perfectly fine in the other. With this new knowledge, Sabine begins a series of increasingly risky experiments that bring her dangerously close to the life she's always wanted. But if she can only have one life, which is the one she'll choose?
