Lubar, David.  Flip.  New York : Tom Doherty, 2003.  $5.99.

Sure that he has seen an UFO, Ryan is searching the woods for debris he
is sure he saw fall.  Taylor and Ryan's friend Ellis find a bunch of
shiny silver disks.  While playing with a disk Ryan finds that by
spinning it just right, it will absorb into his skin and he becomes a
famous person, with their abilities, knowledge and charisma; addicted to
this new found escape from the realities of his life, Ryan "flips"
several times a day, confusing the local bully, teachers and friends
with his erratic behavior.  Studious girl, rowdy and irresponsible boy;
twins no less.  From that stereotypical opening the book delivers a
great story.  Recommended 6th and up.
