Caroline has to babysit their baby twin sisters and J.P. is forced to coach baseball to a bunch of six-year-olds. The two decide to call a truce in their continual sibling warfare and help each other out. They soon discover there's strength in numbers—and a little responsibility isn't always a bad thing.

"The tender, funny story moves rapidly to an auspicious event where the title proves to have more than one meaning." Publishers Weekly
"Readers will recognize the feuding siblings from Lowry's One Hundredth Thing About Caroline), although this may be enjoyed independently. Again, Lowry has created realistic, likable characters in plausible, humorous situations. Lowry retains her ear for dialogue; the conversations are snappy and often funny (as is the entire text). Lowry fans will not be disappointed with the Switcharound."--School Library Journal
