Part 1: From The Book Cover
Surla and Cathy have a HUGE secret!
After spending hundreds of years as a familiar to an abusive witch, Surla runs away to find freedom. But there's one catch! The Black Cats' Curse states she will have to switch bodies with the first lonesome soul to cross her path.
Painfully shy Cathy Phillips can't muster the courage to ask hot water polo player, Craig Nelson, on a date. Neither can she stand up to the three biggest snobs at Washington High. What's a girl to do? Could switching lives with a sassy, magical cat be the answer to her wishes?
The "curse" of being "BeSwitched" may just be the most purr-fect secret these new best friends could ever have!
Part 2: Recommendation
I had this ebook for the longest time and finally got around to it. It has been so long since I downloaded the book that I completely forgot that it was YA. Not really paying attention to the cover image, I was pleasantly surprised to realize that the characters in the book were high school students.
The storyline deals with friendships, social skills issues, witches and magic. It's a refreshing read where the protagonist, Cathy Phillips, learns to be brave as well as realize her self worth while stuck in a cat's body while Surla takes Cathy's body for a sassy spin and a fabulous makeover.
It's a short fun read around Halloween (and you'll just have to read it to see why I recommend reading it around Halloween). Being the first book in the series, I just hope that all the characters will evolve as the series goes on.
