Product Description

As Tuna and Herby try to repair their futuristic gadgets, a little glitch in their Thought Broadcaster Pen lands TJ in the body of her nemesis, Hesper Breakahart-and vice versa! And the plot thickens when Tuna and Herby decide to put TJ's new look and superstar power to use-they decide to have "Hesper" perform a concert as a diversion while they sneak aboard a nuclear submarine and borrow a plutonium power pack (one of the items needed to fuel their time pod and get them out of TJ's life!).
Meanwhile, Tuna and Herby are hounded by their own nemesis, Bruce Bruiseabone, who's having a little trouble with forgiveness . . . a lesson TJ realizes she might also need to learn as she walks a mile in Hesper's shoes-and body!

    Switched is the 5th book in the TJ and the Time Stumblers series. TJ still has her visitors from the 23 century, Tuna and Herby. When one of their devices accidentally switched TJ and the popular Hesper and Doug and Chad, TJ had the opportunity to walk in Hesper's shoes and realize that you shouldn't judge someone from what you see in public. Tuna, Herby and Bruce, their enemy from the 23rd century learned a valuable lesson in forgiveness. Tuna and Herby are continuing to help TJ develop her leadership skills before they head back home. This is a good series for kids, they can read an entertaining book and learn some valuable lessons.

    Switched! is probably the strangest of the series yet. Especially when TJ turns into Hesper. It was funny, but not as much as the others.

    4 stars.

    TJ and the Time Stumblers book 5 Switched! continues the adventures of TJ and her two 23rd century, time-traveling buddies, Tuna and Herby. Bill Myers continues his funny stories dealing with issues that junior highers deal with. In this book TJ ends up being switched with the one girl who she can't stand, Hesper Breakahart, the spoiled, rich, famous TV star. She spends 2 days trapped in her body and learns how tough life is for Hesper. During this experience she realizes why Hesper may be the way she is and learns to forgive her. It still isn't easy for her but she does learn the valuable lesson.

    Once again these are my favorite books but they are okay. I am not thrilled with the incorrect words and the way some of the characters are described, but I am sure some parents and kids would not have issues with these things.

    "Switched!" is the 5th book in the "TJ and the Time Stumblers" series by Bill Myers. It continues the story of mishaps and adventures that junior higher T.J. Finkelstein experiences as a result of her from-the-future companions Herby and Tuna and all their 23rd century gadgets and inventions.

    In this installment, they learn a valuable lesson about empathy, compassion and forgiveness as they "walk a mile" in other's shoes as a result of a body-switching gizmo. TJ begins to understand that the life of her adversary, Hesper Breakaheart, is not all sunshine and rainbows, and the futuristic Herby and Tuna learn why their archenemy is out to get them.

    As far as the series goes, this is probably the second best "moral to the story" but it unfortunately feels like each book gets a little more obnoxious than the last. I didn't really enjoy "Switched!" but because I did appreciate the moral and practical lessons in it, I am giving it 3 stars. :)

    In Switched, TJ learns the value of forgiveness when Tuna and Herby cause a ruckus that results in the body switching of TJ and Hesper. Living a day in Hesper's shoes helps TJ realize how hard it is to always be "perfect" and how much pressure the movie star has on a daily basis. As TJ is learning this valuable lesson, Bruce, who is the nemesis of Tuna and Herby, keeps showing up causing further havoc. TJ, who struggles with forgiving Hesper, manages to get Bruce to forgive Tuna and Herby for a prank that they pulled on him that caused much humiliation for Bruce. Despite the chaos that TJ, Hesper, Chad, and their classmates experienced, everything turned out well in the end and TJ learned another lesson that will help her become the great world leader she is going to grow up to be. This was another great tween/teen read by Bill Myers, which I found funny while still teaching an important Biblical truth that all should learn.
