Holly Fitzgerald has inexplicably woken up inside the body of an LA teenager called Trinity Byrne in 1980 - trapping Trinity in Holly's forty-year-old body back in Melbourne, 2020.

Mind. Officially. Blown.

Holly finds herself navigating a brand-new body, family and cute boy next door - not to mention rock band that might just make it, and potential kidnapper. Meanwhile, lies intersect with truth, hurtling both Holly and Trinity towards a dangerous fate as the connections between them grow deeper and stranger than either could have ever imagined.

Freaky Friday meets Pretty Little Liars - if the Liars were an all-girl punk band from the 1980s - in this highly original soul-swap story from the critically acclaimed author of My Life as a Hashtag.

Reviews for It's Not You, It's Me

'I loved it so much. It's such a special book, full of intrigue and joy and angst at a breakneck pace. I devoured it. The characters leapt off the page and into my heart and I've been thinking about them for days. The ending was so perfect, I was in floods of (happy) tears. It's perfect for teenagers or anyone who was once a teenager, for mums and for anyone who has ever had a mum.' FRANCES CHAPMAN, Stars Like Us
