Synopses & Reviews
On the first day of seventh grade, twin sisters Payton and Emma have been assigned entirely different schedules -- for the first time ever. Without telling anyone, the twins switch places: Cool Payton goes incognito as quiet Emma, while mathlete Emma impersonates fashionista Payton.
No one -- from their new teachers to their clueless classmates -- realizes they've made a switch. The twins quickly find out that playing a different role in life can be a lot of fun -- and that no one is exactly the person the rest of the world thinks they are.
In andlt;Iandgt;Trading Facesandlt;/Iandgt;, identical twin sisters Emma (the smart one) and Payton (the popular one) start seventh grade at a brand-new school and discover theyand#8217;ve been assigned entirely different schedulesand#8212;so when they get sick of their respective cliques, they secretly switch places. What ensues is a hilarious yet poignant romp from middle school to the mall as the twins learn what it means to be true to yourself, even when the rest of the world isnand#8217;t making it easy.
