It was alright but the two sides did not align properly. Fiona is gorgeous, has quirky, artsy parents, and is starring in a professional stage production of Peter Pan. Sure, it's hard to figure out what's going on at school, Robin is fed up with her life-- she bonks heads with her younger sister and gives herself a black eye right before a big swim meet, doesn't do well, and then finds out she has head lice, so her birthday party is canceled.
Sure, it's hard to figure out what's going on at school, Fiona's sister Jolene is really mean, and she finds herself missing her family. She turns to the computer to solve her problems, communicating with her brother's girlfriend Alia and finding out that she is a Wisher-- and eleven year old girl who has switched bodies.
I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories.
This apparently happens all the time. Through a Facebook group, all of the Wishers try to coordinate how they can get back home, but once they realize that their twelfth birthday will mean the end of the ability to change, and since Naomi's birthday is very soon, they have to figure out a way to switch back. Will Robin be able to make it in time, or will she have to be Fiona forever? Strengths: Lots of good details on British language and habits, and an interesting take on wanting to switch lives.
Will buy this one to fill the need for books with magical realism, since there is also a little romance. Weaknesses: Marginal cover, and again, I wish the main character were about 13, in order to make the romance seem more realistic. I personally dislike the use of texting and the reliance on Facebook, since that will date the story, but girls now will like it. I also was slightly confused by the large number of Wishers and found myself doubting that they would really be able to return to the right body! Dec 31, Nora rated it it was ok.
Robin has a horrible eleventh birthday. She wishes she were another person and wakes up as a British girl named Fiona. Robin tries calling her mom but when her mom thinks she has a wrong number and doesn't let her talk Robin sends an email to herself to see who the person that switched with her and who was now in her body was. She gets a reply and opens a Facebook account as Fiona and a Facebook group for other girls that switched like her.

Robin has to figure out what happened to her while adapting to new "parents," a nasty older "sister," a new school, and a whole new culture. And she manages, although not without some pain, a lot of detective work, a lot of effort, and quite a bit of introspection. This is a very good book.

ARC Galley Proof Aug 17, Rebecca McKinnon rated it really liked it. I think every girl, when she's about eleven, wonders what life would be like if she was part of a different family. Bye for Now takes that idea and twists it into a wonderful, fun, exciting adventure that girls of all ages will love. Churchyard has created compelling, believable characters.
BYE FOR NOW
She nailed the wonderful cultural depth and language differences. The vicarious trip to London that is this book is thrilling. Dec 14, Sheryl rated it it was ok. This seems to be just another story where two girls make a wish and switch bodies. It turns out to be much more complicated than that; there is a whole network of wishers around the world and getting back home proves very complicated.
