" This was a little weird! It's like the book thinks it's revolutionary that a kid with parents who scream at and neglect her will turn out better if she suddenly has people in her life who love her. I felt it could have done more with the concept? But it was still a nice read. " said.

" Ok so I’ve read a LOT of books. A lot. But this book is one of the BEST books I’ve ever read. I don’t even know how to describe it. Frannie is such a likeable character (all of them are!) and the description is perfect-not too overwhelming but just right. It all wraps up perfectly. I realllllly want this to be a movie. I totally recommend this book for anyone. " said.

" Bounce was terrific, I think it would make a fantastic book club book for 5th grade or strong 4th grade readers. Lots of appeal to kids who like Pack of Dorks, and like realistic fiction. I loved the fact that it was not a school setting, that seems to be a turnoff for a lot of kids. They want to read about things that are different from their every day experiences, yet that they can relate to. This book will leave readers satisfied, and maybe finding a bit more empathy for others. " said.

" Frannie is not happy. She is the youngest in a dysfunctional family. On Christmas Eve she wishes she had a different family. Waking up the next day she finds her wish granted. Like the movie Groundhog Day wakes up 5 more times on Christmas to a new family. In each she learns a bit about being more assertive and believing in herself. There are some nice messages and good role models for family relationships, but there is an element of fairy tale as well. " said.

" I really loved this book! The storyline was amazing and I loved the characters. I found it so interesting every bounce, because Frannie got to see the world in different perspectives that were so diverse. The book taught the readers that you should be thankful for what you have: This was such a fun and fast read! 4 stars! " said.


This book is a fun spin on the old wish-for-a-different-life Christmas story. Frannie is having the worst Christmas ever when her parents decide to take off for the holiday and her brother and sister throw a major party in the house. Frannie wishes for a new family. When she wakes up, she's living someone else's life. And then it keeps happening. Christmas day over and over as someone else each time. The novel is fast paced and during her adventures Frannie faces her fears and becomes a little less afraid of the world. I think I would have liked this book more if I felt Frannie's character were better developed. I found myself far more invested in the girls whose lives she inhabited than I did her even at the end. As a mother, I found her parents to be the absolute worst as well.

" I loved this book! I read it after The Swap, and it was really good! In this book Frannie bounces to different bodies and lives Christmas 5 times after wishing she could be someone else. This book was really well written and all of the different parts made me laugh, cry, smile, and feel kind of melancholy. I recommend this book to anyone because it's really well written and very hard to put down! " said.

" Clever story. Good for upper elementary. " said.
