#BlogTour Not Myself Today by Muriel Ellis Pritchett

Today it's my turn on the BlogTour Not Myself Today by Muriel Ellis Pritchett.
About the Author
Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, Muriel Ellis Pritchett graduated from the University of Georgia and began her journalism career while living in Japan and Germany. Her journalism career included playwriting, editing and writing for magazines and newspapers, and working in public relations, university relations, and media relations.

After retiring, Muriel’s family doctor recommended she get a hobby.  So, she began writing fun fiction about feisty older women who had been wronged and had to pull themselves up out of the muck. But her award-winning fourth book, Not Myself Today, is a change in genres—a YA paranormal thriller. It is scheduled for release September 24, 2020. Her first three “fruity” books, fun romance for older women, are Making Lemonade, Like Peaches and Pickles, and Rotten Bananas and the Emerald Dream. She is currently working on another “fruity” book, titled Sour Grapes and Balmy Knight.

When not writing, Muriel loves cruising all over the world, eating good Belgian chocolate, and spending time in any Disney park. Her favorite Disney attractions are SOARING at Disney World’s EPCOT in Florida, Alice’s Curious Labyrinth at Disneyland Paris, Journey to the Center of the Earth at DisneySeas in Tokyo, and Indiana Jones Adventure at Disneyland in California.

About the book
High school soccer star Lindsey Anderson was at the top of her game with graduation approaching and a full-ride soccer scholarship offer in her hand. Then she dropped dead on the soccer field, only to wake up in the body of a teenage sex-trafficking victim. No one believes who she really is. Not even her dad. Chased by her new body’s drug-dealing pimp and rabid parapsychologists out to dissect her, Lindsey searches to get her body and her life back before graduation day. Can her BFF and the high school nerdy boy she detests help save her life?

Lindsey is on top of the world. Everything is going her way. She is a top athlete with a full scholarship looming - just one more game to go. The next thing she knows she wakes up in hospital, but everything seems to be a little bit off.

For some strange reason everyone thinks she is some dirty teen with addiction problems and a myriad of criminals and troublemakers following her around. What the heck is going on? Why won't anyone believe her when she tells them who she really is.

It's a YA paranormal read with a crime element.

The question is what do you take from the read? The Freaky Friday aspect of it, the parapsychologists need to discover more frontiers or the sex-trafficking? It's interesting how Pritchett keeps the story entertaining with a lot of discord, but weaves some serious issues into the fabric of it.

The majority of people seem to have set ideas about what sex or human trafficking entails. Foreign countries and kidnapped women and children come to mind, but nobody thinks of all the national in-country children, who fall prey to the predators. The vulnerable, the runaways, the homeless and the missing.

Saying that, Pritchett keeps the YA vibe flowing, which means there are sweet moments and eye-openers, and also the kind of moments you only get when you happen to die and end up in the wrong body. I can imagine this plot being ramped up and venturing into the NA genre.
