Product description

A darkly comic fantasy thriller by Anthony Horowitz. Rich kid Tad is spoilt and thoughtless; the boy who has everything. But one night he wishes he could be someone else – and wakes up in the body of Bob Snarby, a petty crook living in the shabbiest funfair imaginable. It’s a squalid place inhabited by hopeless criminals, mysterious fortune tellers and – worst of all – the murderous Finn. But Tad is there for a reason, as he discovers when he begins to untangle a secret that introduces him to the most unexpected enemy of all… Fast-paced, funny and scary, this is a brilliantly entertaining roller-coaster read.

    Really awesome but scary! * * * *! Recomend it for people who don’t mind twists and unlikely characters being BAD!

    This is one of the best books that I have ever read! My faveourite part is when the boy realises that his father tests products on humans. This book shows the different lifes that people lead. It was a good ending when they were good friends.( Plus the discription was very good.)

    This book is good for people who LOVE a twist. I think the storyline linked quite well to the characters. The way it was written is what I liked. I sort of liked it.
