The book I am reading is called Trading Faces by Julia DeVillers and Jennifer Roy. This book is about twins named Emma and Payton. Emma is the kind of girl who is studious, smart and never gets a bad grade, on the other hand Payton is a “fashionista” as written in the blurb. The genre of this book is realistic fiction. The theme in the story is to try something new. You never know what you might like. The girls tried something new by switching places and doing what they wouldn’t usually do.

One day when her mom forced her to go out to the supermarket, she found out that the guy she liked also wore a headgear. She learned that trying out something new can lead to something good. There were a lot of character changes in this book. To act like Payton, Emma had two things that she would never do if she didn’t trade places with Payton. At gym Emma was talking to Payton’s friend about clothes. “I heard they are coming out with a new sneaker in December, they are organic and great for the environment. Wait. That didn’t sound Paytonish. Plus! I squealed. They are soooo cute! Huh. I could never squeal before”(pp.139). This quote shows that Emma needed to try hard to sound like Payton so nobody would suspect that it wasn’t
