The Switch

Written by Anthony Horowitz

The Switch Synopsis

A boy's casual wish leads him into a dark and mysterious world in this thrilling adventure from the creator of Alex Rider. For Tad Spencer, only son of a fabulously wealthy businessman, every day is like Christmas. Until he makes the mistake of wishing he was someone else. The next morning he wakes up as Bob Snarby, trapped in a cruel and squalid funfair world inhabited by hopeless criminals, mysterious fortune tellers and - worst of all - the murderous Finn. But he's there for a reason, as Tad discovers when he begins to untangle a secret that will introduce him to the most unexpected enemy of all...

The Switch Press Reviews

A formidably well-written adventure story... Horowitz joins a bleak but brilliant new school of children's writing which is best described as fantastical realism. * The Independent * The punchy style, snappy dialogue and lively pace make an attractive novel... extremely entertaining. * The Irish Times *
