Summary from Amazon:
Gypsy Beaumont has always been a whirly-twirly free spirit, so as her thirteenth birthday approaches, she hopes to get a magical ability that will let her fly, or dance up to the stars. Instead, she wakes up on her birthday with blurry vision . . . and starts seeing flashes of the future and past. But when Momma and Poppa announce that her very un-magical, downright mean Grandma Pat has Alzheimer’s and is going to move in with them, Gypsy’s savvy—along with her family’s—suddenly becomes its opposite. Now it’s savvy mayhem as Gypsy starts freezing time, and no one could have predicted what would happen on their trip to bring Grandma Pat home . . . not even Gypsy.
Why I liked this book:
- Gypsy is such a likeable and relatable character! She's got a free spirit, but everyone else tells her she acts immature or that their family is crazy. In the end, Gypsy pushes through.
- The setting switches a bit - they go from their home of Kansaska-Nebransas to where Grandma Pat lives, but it still fantastic! The setting is really calm and very pretty (whereas the plot is tense!)
- We get to revisit some older characters such as Samson and Tucker, and we get to meet some new characters. There are wonderful relationships between Gypsy, her family and her friends.
Therefore, I dub thee this book of Switch by Law, Ingrid an eight out of ten!
