Teen-Fiction about a boy who can travel to 2d dimension

[ Edited ]

I am trying to remember some of the books I read during my childhood. This one in particular was about a girl who notices a boy at school who's face seems to be mirrored/flipped the next day. She comes to find out that he can travel to a 2d dimension. Traversing to this 2d dimension causes your facial features, and I beleive the rest of your body, to be mirrored/flipped.

 

Thats about all I can remember. I hope that is enough to go on.

Re: Teen-Fiction about a boy who can travel to 2d dimension

I realize now how redundant saying "2d dimension" is. I was kind of tired when writing this. Not sure why I remembered it as the second dimension when it was really the fourth dimension.

 

Anyway I believe I found it. Seems like I was a William Sleator fan back then.

 

"The Boy Who Reversed Himself" by William Sleator

"When Laura finds her homework in her locker with its writing reversed, she's baffled, until she learns an unbelievable secret: her weird neighbor, Omar, has the ability to travel to the fourth dimension. Laura forces him to take her there-and then, a novice in four-space, she goes there on her own. There's only one problem-she doesn't know how to get back. A cerebral science-fiction thriller, cunningly constructed to keep the reader involved until the last pages. -The Horn Book

 

When Laura discovers that the unpopular boy living next door to her has the ability to go into the fourth dimension, she makes the dangerous decision to accompany him on his journeys there."
