Freaky Friday "for the 21st century . ."
Joaquin Dorfman is back with another smart novel that pushes the envelope of literary fiction, examining identity, high school roles, and even the high-blown concept of destiny through a cool science-fiction lens. What if, in a "Freaky Friday "moment, a wise and humble 40-year-old man woke one morning to find himself transported back in time, into his body more than 20 years before, when he was the popular, entitled, and arrogant quarterback of the school football team? Could the man do anything to stop a tragedy initiated by the cruel actions of the boy, or is fate too strong a force? It's the small-town football worship of "Friday Night Lights "with a dark and unsettling "Donnie Darko "twist.
Praise for "Playing It Cool:

To impress the popular girls on a high-school trip to London, klutzy Callie buys real Prada heels. But while trying them on, she trips, conks her head, and wakes up in the year 1815. There Callie meets Emily, who takes her in, mistaking her for a long-lost friend.

As she spends time with Emily's family, Callie warms to them, particularly to Emily's cousin Alex, a hottie and a duke, if a tad arrogant. But can Callie save Emily from a dire engagement, and win Alex's heart, before her time in the past is up?

More Cabot than Ibbotson, Prada and Prejudice is a high-concept romantic comedy about finding friendship and love in the past in order to have happiness in the present. …More
