AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What does the Queensland Premier have in common with a carefree schoolgirl? Not much. Until a bizarre, inexplicable and totally weird accident sees them SWAP BRAINS! How will Jane find her way through the corridors of power, and learn to keep Queensland on course? And how will Ted persuade anyone to let him into Parliament House, and out of cheerleading practice?'
