Imagine waking up and finding yourself in the wrong bedroom, in an unfamiliar house and when you look in the mirror, another face stares back at you. Enter to win one of three advanced reader copies of FLIP by Martyn Bedford and you won’t have to imagine … you can read about it. Giveaway begins April 21, 2011, at 12:01 A.M.

Reading Level: 12 and up

Hardcover: 272 pages

Book overview: One December night, 14-year-old Alex goes to bed. He wakes up to find himself in the wrong bedroom, in an unfamiliar house, in a different part of the country, and it’s the middle of June. Six months have disappeared overnight. The family at the breakfast table are total strangers. And when he looks in the mirror, another boy’s face stares back at him. A boy named Flip. Unless Alex finds out what’s happened and how to get back to his own life, he may be trapped forever inside a body that belongs to someone else.

Questions of identity, the will to survive, and what you’re willing to sacrifice to be alive make this extraordinary book impossible to put down.
