What I Loved:
Switch is an adorable story with incredibly important themes. Ingrid Law captures the complex emotions and circumstances that come with living with a grandparent with Alzheimer’s, as well as developing a touching friendship between Gypsy and a young boy who loves makeup.
Though I haven’t read Law’s previous two books in the Savvy companion series, everything is mostly explained in the beginning, so readers can easily pick this one up without having prior background information. Gypsy’s narration is sweet and humorous, and the adventure she goes on to save her grandmother is one you won’t forget.
What Left Me Wanting More:
Though the plot is dynamic and engaging, some of the nuances between major points are slow. This makes the story drag in areas, though readers who enjoy a slower unfolding should have no issue with that.
Though this book isn’t my favorite, Switch is full of delightfully sweet moments, hilarious adventures, and crucial themes. Ingrid Law has a clear talent for unique stories, and I definitely want to read more of her works.
