I might just be bitter because I had high hopes for this book, but it fell very short compared to The Flatshare, which I found clever and touching and true to life. The Switch, while the premise is promising, felt flat, two-dimensional. I struggled to connect with most of the characters, couldn't get a grip on their personalities and motivations, and ultimately really disliked the moral of the story, which boiled down to
Spoiler"meddling is good."
The HEA was as satisfying as I could expect, given all the above.

I kept kinda waiting for something to happen. It does by the end, which earned the 4th star instead of just 3. It also made me really miss my grandma. All around a good book, albeit slower than my preferred pace.

It was better than I thought it was be. There were things I saw coming, like
Spoiler Ethan cheating on Leena, Leena liking Jackson and vice versa, and Eileen and Arnold
