Summary: (Amazon)

Molly and Charlie have fallen head over heels in love—even though they’ve never met Molly is a fashion-conscious city girl in L.A. Charlie is an earthy, mountain-biking dude from Boulder, Colorado. Each of them has big plans with their respective friends for the summer—until they discover that their parents decided to swap houses!
Luckily there’s no amount of homesickness that a bit of snooping can’t cure. Charlie and Molly begin crawling under beds and poking around in closets to find out a little more about each other—and they like what they find.
Can Charlie and Molly’s long-distance romance survive jealousy, misunderstandings—and the thousand miles between them?

My Thoughts:
This book was nothing that I expected. I felt the characters were well developed but that there was no variety. I don’t think everyone could easily make a connection with this book. When I saw that it was compared to the MTV Show, Room Raiders, I was super excited. Whoever came up with that connection though must have never seen the show. It was nothing like it at all.

The plot was a nice change to the typical boy-meets-girl stuff we see. I thought it was fairly well developed for the difficulty of the plot.

I recommend this book to younger teen romance fans.
