Recommended for Age 9+When 11 year olds, Julia and Martin, meet in the Stockholm airport, they feel as if they are looking into the mirror. Julia and Martin decide they are two pieces of broken glass, cosmic twins, and decide to play a trick on their divorced, estranged parents by switching places. Martin, a quiet piano player suddenly finds himself in a frilly dress with a pro-wrestling stepfather. Julia, a tough city girl finds herself in a peaceful rural haven where she must cope with extended relatives and a father’s lady friend. In trading identities, Julia and Martin find themselves in endless comic situations. But they also gain new perspectives on their own lives and problems.
