Back to the news. Luisa Plaja's Swapped by a Kiss cover:
I wish I wasn't myself anymore.
I wish I was her.
I wish I was Jo.
Rachel hates her life.
When her on/off boyfriend David goes to a music festival in England, she jumps on a plane to surprise him - but she gets a shock of her own. Not only does she find David kissing someone else, but it's their friend Jo! Super-lovely, super-loved, all-round-perfect Jo.
Rachel runs away, wishing she could leave her life behind - and she suddenly finds herself in Jo's body! Can she keep this swap a secret? Can she unravel what's really going on? Can she get to grips with Jo's out-of-control curly hair?
And if she discovers that being in someone else's shoes isn't all it's cracked up to be, can she ever be herself again? From Luisa's website.
You know, I get why Rachel wants to be me, I am pretty awesome! I kid, I kid!
BUT LOOK AT THAT COVER! I believe I see PURPLE... and there's some black and silver (could be grey, but lets not get specific) there too! This make's Jo a happy girl! This Jo, me, not character Jo. And it's so pretty! And, well, it's a novel by Luisa Plaja, which means it's automatically going to be amazing, and it's a sequel to Split by a Kiss, so it's going to be amazing twice! I'm sorry, all this purple is bringing out the little girl in me.
I say that cover should be a t-shirt!
For those who'd like to see the cover the other way round, to see Rachel and Jo swapped round (see what I did there?), here you go:
And you know, I think this cover may catch the eyes of the target audience a little more than the previous two covers - it fits in with the covers of Luisa's other novels (see below), but I think it also looks a little maturer. This is all good! I loves it! I can't wait to read it, and I can't get over how pretty it is!

I can't wait for this book!
P.S. I've not seen this cover for Extreme Kissing before, but I like it too!

ETA: I've been told that the above cover was actually the original cover for Extreme Kissing, before they changed it to the one we all know.
