The House Swap


Author: Yvette Clark


The Parent Trap meets The Holiday in this heartwarming and funny story of two girls, one American and one British, who become friends and confidantes when their families swap houses, from the acclaimed author of Glitter Gets Everywhere.

Allie and Sage are complete opposites. Allie is British, a middle child, and dreams of being a spy. Sage is an only child from California who’s into crystals. They’re brought together when their parents arrange a house swap—Allie’s family will spend a week at Sage’s house in California while Sage and her mom stay in Allie’s house for a visit to the British countryside.

When the girls meet, Allie quickly sees that Sage is hurting over tension between her parents. Determined to reunite them, the girls hatch a plan to bring Sage’s dad to England. When everything—shockingly—goes according to plan, Sage must finally confront her parents and learn the fate of her family.

While Allie helps pull the strings in Sage’s family, she’s struggling to be noticed in her own, with her obnoxious older brother and annoying younger sister taking up all her parents’ time. But when her brother is in a surf accident, Allie sees him and their family in a new light.

This sweet and emotional story is told in alternating chapters from each girl’s POV, offering two unique perspectives on family and belonging.
