I love a good story about moms, their lives, and their troubles. In The Seven Day Switch I got two moms, and I loved it! What makes it even better is that it turns into a body-switch story, so it’s got a bit of a fantasy aspect to it.
I enjoyed both of the main characters in this story. Wendy is a working mom trying to bust her butt to get everything done. I felt for her, I connected to her, and I thought, oh she’s going to be the one I know and understand. And yet, when I met Celeste, I kind of got her too. She’s busting her butt to get everything done too. So really, there’s a lot in common between these two women. Will they come to understand that though?
I thought this was just a fun story with comedic points, and a heart-warming story that I didn’t want to end. I loved getting to know each character, and the zany body-switch made this even better! I would definitely recommend this book if you enjoy character driven plots with some fun twists!
Where to Find This Book:
Two moms as opposite as a Happy Meal and a quinoa bowl. What a difference a week makes in a heartfelt, laugh-out-loud novel by the Washington Post bestselling author of The Overdue Life of Amy Byler.
Celeste Mason is the Pinterest stay-at-home supermom of other mothers’ nightmares. Despite her all-organic, SunButter-loving, free-range kids, her immaculate home, and her volunteering awards, she still has time to relax with a nice glass of pinot at the end of the day. The only thing that ruins it all is her workaholic, career-obsessed neighbor, who makes no secret of what she thinks of Celeste’s life choices every chance she gets.
Wendy Charles is a celebrated productivity consultant, columnist, and speaker. On a minute-by-minute schedule, she makes the working-mom hustle look easy. She even spends at least one waking hour a day with her kids. She’s not apologizing for a thing. Especially to Celeste, who plays her superior parenting against Wendy whenever she can.
Who do Celeste and Wendy think they are? They’re about to find out thanks to one freaky week. After a neighborhood potluck and too much sangria, they wake up—um, what?—in each other’s bodies. Everything Celeste and Wendy thought they knew about the “other kind of mom” is flipped upside down—along with their messy, complicated, maybe not so different lives.
