Cycler by Lauren McLaughlin
What would happen if there was a boy strapped into a girl's body, whose periodic escapes coincided with the girl's menstrual cycle? What would happen if the boy began to fall for the girl's best friend? McLaughlin tackles these questions, which some might say is just an excuse for split personality disorder, with a kind of grace that makes it all plausible. Her only fault could be the overuse of the word "mal". The transitions between the two viewpoints are very smooth and adept. The book is a quick read.
