Flip is a book about a kid named Ryan who is in high school with his twin sister Taylor. Ryan is a stereotypical rebellious child, who has bad relationships with his parents, bad grades in school, and isn't usually to concerned about school in general. Taylor is the stereotypical opposite of Ryan; their parents love her and are proud of her, she gets good grades in school, and is basically a model student in general. One day, Ryan goes into the woods to find a flying-saucer that he thought he saw during the night, and his sister goes with them. They both encounter and come in contact with a green, jelly-like substance that shows them an advertisement of the disks that they find scattered around the forest floor. Ryan takes a few days to try to figure out what the disks do, while Taylor (always the rational one) simply believes that the whole thing is a hoax. One day, while Ryan is toying around with one of the disks in class, he flips it (as though it were a quarter) and found that it melted into his palm when he tried to catch it.
Whenever Ryan, or anyone else that should come across these alien disks should flip them, as Ryan was doing, they would enter your body and put you into the mindset of someone else. Each disk, had the personality, intelligence, memories, and even habits and abilities of a different Earth hero recorded within it, and each of them lasted more or less time, depending on its size and the number sequence printed on it. Ryan becomes more people than possibly imaginable with these disks, and he can either choose to simply allow their mindset to overlap his own in such a way that he still had control, or he could let the hero take over and simply sit back and enjoy the ride. For instance, Ryan becomes Babe Ruth, Albert Einstein, Spartacus, Ghandi, Elvis Presley and so many more, all while he is in school. As Spartacus, Ryan institutes a revolution against the bully that has taken over the school, but he runs out of steam just before he was supposed to fight him. Ryan uses his last disk on the fight, and it turns out that he turns into Ghandi and can simply take all of the punches that the bully, Billy, is willing to throw. Ryan lasts until Billy was about to start using a tire iron on him, which is when the even stronger (but fairer) bully, Ace steps in and ends it.
