I agree with another reviewer that it has a Freaky Friday vibe to it. Cathy is a human teenager getting bullied at school by the mean girl posse. Surla is a witch's cat, and her witch is worse than the mean girl posse combined! Surla ends up running away, and this story postulates that when a black cat crosses paths with a human, they are beswitched: Surla becomes Cathy and Cathy becomes Surla. Quickly, Surla learns about being human (what's the point of a telephone?) and Cathy learns what it's like to be a cat, lounging around all day. Plus, Surla ends up showing more personality than Cathy normally does, so her classmates start to notice...including the boy she's had a crush on for ages. In the meantime, Surla's witch is trying her darnedest to get Surla back, as witches can't perform spells without their cats....or someone else's black cat, anyway. The only way to switch them back is a spell in the witch's spell book. Can Surla and Cathy connive a way to get the book and switch back, or will they be stuck forever?
In the interim, the cat shows Cathy how to show off, be cool, and just pretty much how to survive high school. As with any typical high school, there are cute jocks and mean girls, and the two must live through it all—and figure out how to escape the witch and switch back!
This was another Freaky Friday story—but with felines. Oddly enough, some parts of the story were told from the eye of the cat. Well, of course, these were magical cats, for god’s sakes!
It kind of reminded me of the movie, Hocus Pocus, with its Disney antics and fumbling witch that may have taken a likeness to the funny Bette Midler, but there wasn’t as much magic as I thought it would’ve had.
By the end, Surla made some really good friends in Todd and Chrissy, just like Sabrina in Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, but what’s to happen when she must leave and return to her cat body?
The showdown, I thought, was sort’ve confusing. I didn’t really know what the heck was going on. And, above all else, it ended with a cliff-hanger, which I hate. “Idis is…” That’s it? See, the writers/publishers do this to you on purpose, because they want to force you to get the next book in the series. What a jip! And why is there a series? I mean, how many times can you switch lives with a cat? Well, judging from the title of the next book, BeSwitched Witch, someone might be switching with Idis, the evil witch. That might be worth checking out a little.
Overall, this was a cute, funny, easy-to-follow story that was mostly intended for the 12-year old audience judging from the simple writing style.
While Surla the witch's cat does improve Cathy's social life, she's still a cat and the world of the American teenager is new to her so she makes some dumb choices with dangerous consequences. I like that the situations Surla found herself in were realistic, not over the top, still scary, and absolutely hilarious at the same time. I know that's a lot to ask of a book, but I think this one accomplishes it really well.
This book manages to give a few life lessons that girls as young as 12 need to know without being preachy at all. As far as YA books are concerned, this one with it's humor, great characters, hilarious set up, and over the top magic antics is a welcome addition to a sometimes overly-angsty genre.
I'd recommend if for ages 12 to adult, as there are some relationship themes in it that younger kids don't really need to process just yet.
