The Day My Parents Became My Kids: This middle-grade book asks, what if kids were in charge of their parents? Piper’s world changed after her run-in with the Northern Lights. Now, she and her younger brother can boss their parents around, take away their television and cell phone privileges, and even ground them! They can put their teachers in timeout, insist on better grades, and force the principal to swap places with them to rule the school. It all seems like a more perfect world — that is, until the parents really screw it up. Middle grade Ages 9-12.
