Ethan Pritcher: Body Switcher
Douglas E. Richards
won from librarything member giveaways

synopsis (Goodreads)
The latest work from the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling adult thriller, WIRED, the kids science fiction series, THE PROMETHEUS PROJECT, and THE DEVIL’S SWORD.

Ethan Pritcher is a normal kid. Well, other than the fact that every once in a while, he switches bodies with someone else. He doesn't know how or why, he just knows that it happens -- and always when he least expects it.

After trading identities with a muscle-bound movie star, Ethan finds himself in a big trouble. When he learns that a hired killer is after him, just staying alive will be a big challenge. But his sister, Madison, may have the toughest job of all. She'll have to find a way to keep the movie star, now inhabiting Ethan's body, from getting her brother kicked out of sixth grade. .


I have an 11 year old son. I'm always looking for books he will like, His preferance is books with normal kids doing extraordinary things. Ethan Pritcher is just such a kid.
When I told him to read a book that involved a kid, a chemistry set and ketchup, he was initially stunned. He read the book and laughed throughout. He then asked for more.

Ethan Pritcher is a good book. A book that will be enjoyed by young kids, both boys and girls. Ethan's sister and her friend are the only girls, but future books could possibly have more to interest girls.

Ethan switches places/bodies with other people as a result of his chemistry experiment.

We both enjoyed this book and look forward to more adventures with Ethan and his sister Madi.
