The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the 2011 Costa Children's Book Award.
Waking up as someone he’s never even met is the strangest experience of Flip’s life. Suddenly he’s Philip – or Flip – and nothing and no-one is familiar any more; the house, his ‘mother’, even his own face have all changed and no one can tell him why. Then there’s school, friends – a whole world to be navigated but without any help! How Alex works his way through the extraordinary situation is a gripping and questioning psychological thriller.

Flip by Martyn Bedford
Ever wake up in someone else's body? Fourteen-year-old Alex Gray wakes up one morning to discover he's not in his own bedroom. More surprising is that he doesn't recognize his hands, or his legs...When he looks in the mirror he gets the shock of his life! How is it possible that Alex has become another boy - a boy who everyone calls Philip? And how have six whole months passed overnight? This is a riveting psychological thriller by a brilliant new voice in children's books.
