When Empress arrives at a private London school on a scholarship, she intends to keep her head down and focus on her studies. She is suspicious of the friendly Aniya, whose privileged life is the polar opposite of her own. In fact Aniya has no ulterior motives. Growing up safe and loved and nurtured has made her genuinely nice; she stands up for what is right and has no time for snobbery. Things take an unpredictable turn on the girls’ 16th birthday when a spell they recite for a lark actually works and they switch bodies! While Empress tries in vain to teach Aniya that in some environments being nice makes you a liability, Aniya finds out that Empress’ home life is far worse than she had imagined. A warm-hearted story about seeing and being seen, and the life-changing impact of a loyal friend.
