Two teen-agers, a jock and a nerd, switch bodies. So goes the plot summary of U and Me on Amazon Prime. This 1987 gender swap comedy from Asia is particularly interested in gender roles and expectations, and we see both characters suffocating under the expectations of their new genders.
The female in this story has been raised to polite and meek. Once trapped in a male body, the other guys see her as a sissy, and she is subjected to relentless bullying. We also see her suffering extreme discomfort as she finds herself engaging in innapropriate behavior — entering the boys’ bathroom and shower, going to the beach where she is expected to take her shirt off (she doesn’t).
The guy meanwhile finds himself being subjected to the pressures to be a proper young lady. He is urged to watch his language, to be polite. His new mother makes him come shopping with her, telling him he needs to learn how to shop because he is a woman. In the movie’s best scene, he makes a speech in front of the school on how unfair life is for girls, where they are forced to always be polite and lady-like while boys can do “whatever they want.”
It’s a fun and interesting film that also has some of the usual beats– they guy realizing he has boobs he can play with, having his first period. For a time, he settles into his life as a girl, but both of the characters eventually come to feel they can’t live as the opposite sex. It’s well worth the watch. Check it out!
It’s here! Your Memory Mine 2 is now available. I am so excited. I think this is one of the best things I have ever written and a case where the sequel is even better than the original.
When the story opens, our hero, Dylan, having found himself trapped in the body of a teen-age girl, has settled into a new life working as a waitress in New Hope, Pennsylvania. He’s found peace, and expects to live out a calm, normal life.
Then the girl who stole his body, shows up and once more throws his life into turmoil as rival agencies bent on world domination compete to capture Dylan and turn him into an agent of mass destruction.
Why do they want him so badly? What makes him such a special girl? Read Your Memory Mine2, and find out! This story features multiple body swaps, age-regression, action and romance!
If you liked Your Memory Mine, I predict you will love YMM2. It picks up where the first book left off, with Dylan having accepted his new body and identity as a young woman, working as waitress in New Hope, Pennsylvania. He just wants to live his life in peace now and find some happiness with the one he loves.
But powerful forces come crashing down on his peaceful new life as competing agencies seek to capture him and unleash his untapped powers. The second book reveals many of the secrets from the first book, including what makes Dylan so special and why people are willing to kill for him.
I have hacked out roughly 10,000 words of what I expect to be a 50- 60,000 word story, where the bullets fly, the bodies swap and no gets out unchanged! Look for more updates, teasers and giveaways in the coming weeks!

That is, until his sister uses forbidden magic to turn him into a girl. As Pattenia’s younger sister, Serren no longer has claim to the throne and watches as his sister takes his crown and consigns him to a life of corsets and gowns.
