The Seven Day Switch

A novel by

Two moms as opposite as a Happy Meal and a quinoa bowl. What a difference a week makes in a heartfelt, laugh-out-loud novel by the Washington Post bestselling author of The Overdue Life of Amy Byler.

Celeste Mason is the Pinterest stay-at-home supermom of other mothers’ nightmares. Despite her all-organic, SunButter-loving, free-range kids, her immaculate home, and her volunteering awards, she still has time to relax with a nice glass of pinot at the end of the day. The only thing that ruins it all is her workaholic, career-obsessed neighbor, who makes no secret of what she thinks of Celeste’s life choices every chance she gets.

Wendy Charles is a celebrated productivity consultant, columnist, and speaker. On a minute-by-minute schedule, she makes the working-mom hustle look easy. She even spends at least one waking hour a day with her kids. She’s not apologizing for a thing. Especially to Celeste, who plays her superior parenting against Wendy whenever she can.

Who do Celeste and Wendy think they are? They’re about to find out thanks to one freaky week. After a neighborhood potluck and too much sangria, they wake up—um, what?—in each other’s bodies. Everything Celeste and Wendy thought they knew about the “other kind of mom” is flipped upside down—along with their messy, complicated, maybe not so different lives.

Genre: General Fiction

Praise for this book

"Kelly Harms has created a funny, zany story of two moms who drink some sangria with imported vodka and suddenly find themselves inhabiting each other’s bodies. (Think Freaky Friday with two grown women who don’t much like each other.) As she takes us on a ride exploring the ever-present ‘mommy wars’—starring one way-too-busy productivity-expert mom and a stay-at-home mother who has become the neighborhood carpooler—Harms very quietly brings us to some profound and unexpected truths about love and parenting and what makes a satisfying life. Written with Harms’s disarming humor and honesty, The Seven Day Switch is fun and funny—and leaves you with a powerful punch." - Maddie Dawson

"Harms delights in The Seven Day Switch. When polar-opposites Celeste and Wendy chug magical sangria and find themselves literally walking in the other’s shoes, they’ll soon discover that maybe they aren’t so different after all. Heartwarming and hilarious, with an incredibly satisfying ending, we guarantee you will love this book!" - Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke
