What if you could escape your life with just one click?

Bullied by his brother and living in the shadow of his athletic best friend, Jonah is crippled by self-loathing and insecurity. Then a mysterious stranger hands him a disposable camera with the power to transport him into someone else's body--and someone else's life. But with a limited number of shots and trouble mounting click by click, will this unhappy boy find a new life? Or will the secret he's been keeping follow him wherever he goes? Richard Scrimger's Lucky Jonah is a hilarious take on a Freaky Friday-esque switcheroo with a major identity crisis.

This title is a 2017 nominated Red Maple, Forest of Reading title and it was one I really enjoyed! Jonah doesn't have the best relationships at home, especially with his older brother. His best friend is the most popular boy in school, but Jonah is the very opposite, viewed as a dweeb by his fellow classmates. When a local drifter named Gord gives him a weird disposable camera, things get interesting. With this camera, Jonah can click and become someone else! Through the day, he learns about himself and others. He reaffirms who he is and confirms his feelings about friends and family. Well done!
