Transfer Student
A spell-binding intergalactic tale of beauty & the geek. 
Two Worlds––Two Teens––One Wish 

Rhoe and Ashley would never be friends. Even if they lived on the same planet. But, they’ll become so much more. They’ll transfer. Earthling Ashley’s world revolves around winning daily popularity contests at Beverly Hills High School and surfing competitions with sweet scholarship prizes that will finally help her break free of her control-freak mother. Meanwhile on planet Retha, Rhoe misses his dad, loves his mom’s home-cooked Glechy crag with a side of ory sauce, is desperate to heal his sick brother and wants more than anything to win The Retha New Invention Competition. But Rhoe‘s invention teleports him across the universe with an unintended side effect, Ashley and Rhoe transfer. They swap lives when they make the same wish at the same time. 

Popular-surfer-turned-boy-geek alien Ashley must handle life on Retha as Rhoe complete with webbed feet, low-gravity, and an obsession with Yuke, all the while being hunted by Rethan spies and resenting her hairy, flat chest. Boy-geek-turned-popular-surfer Rhoe must fit in at Beverly Hills High School as Ashley, compete in The Laguna Beach Invitational without becoming shark food, dodge boys’ affections, cool his preoccupation with Tiffany and his new body, and find the healing rocks he believes will save his brother’s life. If only it were that simple. Some wishes can't come true. Some have to. 


If you`ve seen one of my last post, I have received this book from the author herself. I was so glad for everything she did; the shipping costs as much as the book. Not that I`m saying that if I become an author someday, I`d have the winner pay for the shipping fee.


This book is really great. The plot twist was extraordinary--a geeky alien and a human queen bee switching lives. I loved it that  I felt like I was in another fantasy world; sometimes real life can be pretty boring to hear. Planet Retha was (I think) what Earth would be if humans continue living for themselves, slowly destroying their home. Rhoe said that there was no water in their planet, while in Earth there was an abundant supply of water but left unappreciated.


I actually laughed when...Rhoe in the body of Ashley kissed Tiffany, and Ashley in the body of Rhoe kissed Yuke. It was just weird, but awesome. Well, of course you couldn`t help it if you were born that way.
Can`t wait for the next book!


Rating:




I don`t think this book is available here in Philippines, unless if you ordered online or something, but you could read it online at goodreads. (If you`re my classmate or friend, I`d be happy to lend you my copy with great care.)


I`m really sorry if my review`s not great. It`s just been months since I last posted a book review...


Meanwhile you could watch the book trailer here.
