Shout Out to Indies

We here at The Paperback Princesses often receive emails from Indie authors requesting reviews and are blessed with free book copies. Often we are unable to get to so many titles before our mass market published books take over our TBR shelves. That doesn't mean there aren't plenty of great reads though! We want to give back to those Indie authors and are declaring EVERY SECOND SUNDAY our SHOUT OUT TO INDIES MEME. For those of fellow bloggers, please feel free to add our meme to your regular schedule. We only ask that you quote and link back to us as a courtesy. For all of you Indie authors, we invite you to contact us at the contact link to your top left. We will select 1 - 3 titles (each time we post) that sound interesting. Lastly, for you readers, this is a bit of a test so please do comment and let us know what you think. We will also be offering up giveaway copies whenever we can! So without further ado, here are this week's picks -

Published: June  2012

"Colin and Jessica couldn't be any different. Jessica's passion for dancing keeps her far away from the soccer field that Colin practically lives on. The only thing they have in common is Cassidy, Colin's sister and Jessica's best friend. When a freak accident causes Jess and Colin to switch bodies, they are forced to learn to walk in someone else's shoes. Will they ever be able to put aside their differences? Or will they forever be stuck living someone else's life?"

My Best Friend's Brother ..... is a fun-filled quick read, that had me smiling often.  This is a new take on the classic 'body switching', and managed to be fresh and interesting.  Natasja has succeeded in making her dialogue quick witted and entertaining and it was very convincing. 

Colin and Jessica are of course horrified when they switch places but there was a huge amount of character growth as they become acustomed to their new bodies and circumstances and it was easy to believe in their triumphs and frustrations.  Have you ever watched the movie 'It's a Boy/Girl Thing'?  Well if you enjoyed it, you'll love My Best Friend's Brother...The Summer I Turned Into a Girl. I'm looking forward to seeing more from Natasja.

I am lucky enough to work with Natasja and I've convinced her to let us have a copy of her wonderful book for a giveaway.  If you're interested, leave your email in the comments.  We'll draw a winner in two weeks.

Disclaimer:   I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.
