 I Swapped My Brother On The Internet by Jo Simmons

'I Swapped My Brother On The Internet' is a Hilarious and gripping book based on brotherly love, and the fact that you should always hang on to your family, they are the people who will always love you and support you, even if you don't notice it. Jonny is an ordinary boy in his ordinary town, part of an ordinary family, however he has an annoying brother, Ted who constantly teases Jonny and makes him feel out of ease all the time. Spectacularly enough, a peculiar ad popped up on his screen saying sibling swap, swap siblings today with siblings wap.  Soon after that occured  Jonny came to his final straw and he set fouriously to the siblings wap website to swap his brother, he filed the form and sent it right away . The sibling swap team said the swap would be coming at 5 pm. He went down to his brothers room and called out “TED!” and again “TED” but no answer came. Ted was gone. After the first swap arrived it was followed by a dozen of catastrophic swaps, for example a mere boy the ghost of Henry the Eight, and a boy raised by meerkats. Jonny sooner or later realized that he may be prefered Ted out of all these other ‘Brothers’. But how was Jonny ever to get Ted back?...

My favourite character in the book is one of the swaps who faked being a Xbox addicted kid called Pete to know more about the origins of the siblingswap website, but whose real name was pip and she was really a girl. I prefer  her due to her brave, sneaky and brilliant attributes which I greatly admire. My opinion and perspective on this novel is that it is extremely readable and greatly entertaining, although contemporaneously gives an important lesson to the reader. I recommend this book to readers and fans of 'The Parent Agency' by David Baddiel and all other family based hilarious novels.
