A book for teens.

Fourteen-year-old Alex Gray wakes up one morning to discover he's not in his own bedroom. He goes downstairs to be greeted by a family he's never met before. And when he looks in the mirror, he doesn't recognise himself. How is it possible that Alex has become another boy - someone called Philip? And how have six months passed overnight?

This is a riveting psychological thriller by a new writer. The characters are well drawn and you feel the fear, panic and bewilderment with Alex. And you can't stop reading because you want to find out just what has happened to him. The conclusion doesn't disappoint.
