Flip is a propulsive standalone science fiction novel for middle grade readers by acclaimed author David Lubar now available in trade paperback.
Eighth-graders Ryan and Taylor are twins, but that's where the similarities end.
Their parents and teachers think Taylor is the perfect student. Ryan never met a test he couldn't fail. In fact, failure is what he does best. But they share at least one thing in common: nothing is turning out as they planned. It's as if the rules have suddenly changed. No matter who you are, everyone wants you to be someone else. But who?
They may have found the answer: magical alien disks that allow them to "flip" into the character of a hero from the past—Einstein, Cleopatra, Hercules. The possibilities are endless. As Ryan and Taylor discover, being a hero is fun. It's being yourself that is really hard.
Flip is a fast and funny coming-of-age adventure that will appeal to avid and reluctant readers alike, by David Lubar, the beloved author of the popular Weenies short-story collections.
