School has broken up, Christmas is coming and Alex is hurrying home to beat his curfew. But when he wakes up the next morning he finds himself in the wrong bedroom, in an unfamiliar house, in a different part of the country... And it’s the middle of June. Six months have disappeared overnight. As for the family at the breakfast table, they’re total strangers.

If that isn’t weird enough, when he looks in the mirror another boy’s face stares back at him. Alex is no longer Alex, he is Philip. Impossible, but the evidence is right there before his eyes. And unless he finds out what’s happened and how to get back, he will be trapped forever inside a body that belongs to someone else and a life he doesn’t want...

Flip was shortlisted for the Costa Children’s Book Award, longlisted for the Carnegie Medal and named as a Red House Pick of the Year title. Bedford’s novel also won four regional prizes: the Sheffield Children’s Book Award, the Calderdale Book of the Year, as well as the Bay and Immanuel College Book Awards.
