The Unselfie Project: #WeAreChangers

I was hoping to have my review of Changers up today, but the truth is my health has been a bit all over the place recently and, as much as I've wanted to, I haven't even made a start on reading the book. Sometimes life just gets in the way, but don't worry - I've got something a little different to share with you instead.


The Cheerleader, The Nerd, The Jock, The Freak. What if you had to be all four?

Changers book one: DREW opens on the eve of Ethan Miller's freshman year of high school in a brand-new town. He's finally sporting a haircut he doesn't hate, has grown two inches since middle school, and can't wait to try out for the soccer team. At last, everything is looking up in life.

Until the next morning. When Ethan awakens as a girl.

Ethan is a Changer, a little-known, ancient race of humans who live out each of their four years of high school as a different person. After graduation, Changers choose which version of themselves they will be forever - and no, they cannot go back to who they were before the changes began.

Ethan must now live as Drew Bohner - a petite blonde with an unfortunate last name - and navigate the treacherous waters of freshman year while also following the rules: Never tell anyone what you are. Never disobey the Changers Council. And never, ever fall in love with another Changer. Oh, and Drew also has to battle a creepy underground syndicate called 'Abiders' (as well as the sadistic school queen bee, Chloe). And she can't even confide in her best friend Audrey, who can never know the real her, without risking both of their lives.

Because, while changing the world can kinda suck, it sure beats never knowing who you really are.

From what I've heard, the Changers series is going to tear down a few stereotypes, and something I found particularly interesting is the authors' 'Unselfie Project' with the aim of encouraging young people (do I still count as one? I become an adult this year HELP) to capture their feelings rather than their physical selves in a photo. I LOVE photography and projects like this, so...


What do you think the photo means?

I'm so excited to read this - hopefully it'll be soon - and make sure you check out everyone else participating in the blog tour!

  1. This sounds like such a fan fiction type of premise, but I'm honestly intrigued. I like the sound of this. This could turn out to be wonderful!

  3. This sounds incredible, though I hope it isn't too similar to Just One Day by David Leviathan. This does, however, sound like it could really explore how different 'cliques' work and relate to each other in a high school environment. I might just pick this book up!
