A thrilling YA novel that proves "some people are anaphylactic to each other."


“…a humorously told and entertaining story that will appeal to YA fans and readers who enjoy young urban fantasy. The story is told in an absorbing first-person narrative and the exciting voice of the protagonist is hard to resist. The plot took me on a path I never anticipated… As If Something Happened is told by a master storyteller and features a young female protagonist who is richly developed and whose sense of humor is exceptionally depicted in the story.” —Jose Cornelio for Readers' Favorite


Fourteen-year-old, Laura “Elmur” Murphy figures that her genetic makeup has disadvantaged her. When she was five and wanted to be the pretty Indian Princess in the school play, she was given the part of a cowboy named Rag-time Joe instead.


So, on the day freshmen from selected high schools throughout the world are injected with someone else’s genes as part of “Stepping Away from I’ness,” Elmur decides she wants to see the world from someone else’s point of view.


But after a sick twist of fate, she finds herself on the run with a group of other student misfits. In a real-life video game of strength and wits, Elmur must become the hero of her own story or risk becoming someone she doesn’t recognize.
