At the moment of death, some souls aren’t ready to depart. Take fourteen-year-old Alex Gray for instance. While his body is hospitalized in a coma, his soul has slipped into the life of Phillip (Flip) Garamond – cricket star, partier and player.  The phenomenon is psychic evacuation, or PE for short. For clarinet player, chess lover, and unathletic Alex, the switch might not be so bad, except for the nightmares and strangers surrounding him.  When Alex discovers there’s a chance he can undo this PE, he has to decide if he wants to be Flip, or try to flip the souls back.
