Having read & enjoyed other books by Kate Long, I was pretty sure I'd like this one - & I wasn't disappointed!

This tale focuses on Ally, & her friend & neighbour Juno who signs herself up for the TV Show Queen Mum (Wife Swap with voting!)

The blurb says it all..."written with wit, empathy and incisiveness, is about friendship and love, recklessness and caution" & "about how the camera, while it sometimes lies, can also reveal uncomfortable truths." ...which is illustrated by the "clips" from the show, a touch I particulary liked. Ally's family also suffered a huge & tragic loss, & the way they deal with it individually, plus the usual trials & tribulations of teenage life make this is more than a standard chick-lit book about friends & neighbours.

This book is a written version of a tv programme called Wife Swap but I sure there is other titles for the tv show in other countries. This book shows that not all families or even couples are perfect. These partnership are something that needs too be worked at and it is not always cool sailing. Friendships and families needing each other through the good, the bad and the ugly times. This is what makes a relationship strong.
