From the Publisher:
First published in 1972, FREAKY FRIDAY deals with issues of feminism, motherhood, and the eternal, but sometimes strained, bond that exists between mother and daughter. Tired of being treated like a child, 13-year-old Annabel Andrews declares that she can't wait to be a grown-up so that she can be responsible for herself--and herself alone. With a little bit of magic, Annabel's mother makes that wish come true, and the next day Annabel wakes up to discover that she has turned into her 35-year-old mother. At first Annabel is thrilled, and she eagerly plans a day full of television watching and junk food eating. However, as her day wears on, Annabel comes to understand the challenges of her mother's life--and gains new insights into her own relationship with her mom. Meanwhile, her mother has taken over Annabel's body--and she makes a few changes that will certainly surprise Annabel when she turns back into herself. Sequels include A BILLION FOR BORIS and SUMMER SWITCH.
