#17 "He's no ordinary human bee-ing..."
Poor Gary Lutz is made fun of I just about everyone. Even his mom laughs at him. He's in desperate need of a vacation from himself and his life. So when he gets the chance to do just that for a whole week he jumps on the opportunity. But something goes horribly horribly wrong. Gary may never be the same again! ( )

I feel like this is enough of a review to leave here...

But seriously, what was this book?

We have a boy who is terrified of bees, a company that allows you to trade places with another person through some weird technology... They mess up and put him in the body of a bee - and then what? They don't apologize, they don't even particularly try to correct it. The family with the boy who the bee took over don't notice anything different about him, either? I mean, the boy is shoving his nose into flowers.

None of this book made sense. Man. ( )

This one was a lot of fun. I liked seeing Gary's adventures as a bee and how the moral slammed into him like a speeding train. ( )

Cute for young kids who like cheesy thrills. Not as good as the fear street series, but these tended to be more successful for some reason.
