Switch by Ingrid Law
Gypsy Beaumont has always been a whirly-twirly free spirit, so as her
thirteenth birthday approaches, she hopes to get a magical ability that
will let her fly, or dance up to the stars. Instead, she wakes up on her

move in with them, Gypsy's savvy--along with her family's--suddenly
becomes its opposite. Now it's savvy mayhem as Gypsy starts freezing
time, and no one could have predicted what would happen on their trip to
bring Grandma Pat home . . . not even Gypsy.
