Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Switching places with someone else has never been more fun than in this novel about following your dreams and finding your heart from the author of Meant to Be.

Meet Sloane Emily Jacobs: a seriously stressed-out figure skater who choked during junior nationals and isn't sure she's ready for a comeback. What she does know is that she'd give anything to escape the mass of misery that is her life.

Now meet Sloane Devon Jacobs, a spunky ice hockey player who's been suspended from her team for too many aggressive hip checks. Her punishment? Hockey camp, now, when she's playing the worst she's ever played. If she messes up? Her life will be over.

When the two Sloanes meet by chance and decide to trade places for the summer, each girl thinks she's the lucky one. But it didn't occur to Sloane E. that while avoiding sequins and axels she might meet a hockey hottie—and Sloane D. never expected to run into a familiar (and very good-looking) face from home. It's not long before the Sloanes discover that convincing people you're someone else might be more difficult than being yourself. 

“Escaping from your own life and fitting perfectly—and hilariously imperfectly—into someone else’s? Who doesn’t fantasize about that? Morrill nails this unforgettable story full of twists and romance.”—Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door

"A twist on the identity-swap that's both cozily familiar and fresh . . . . sweetly uplifting."--Publishers Weekly 

"Enjoyable."--Kirkus Reviews

“Sweet and satisfying.”--Booklist

From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

"Morrill's novel features two equally flawed and fascinating characters who happen to have very similar names: Sloane Emily Jacobs and Sloane Devon Jacobs. After a chance meeting in Canada, the two girls — one is a figure skater, the other is a hockey player — hatch a plan to trade places for the summer. Narrators Lewis and Sorvari each turn in a professional performance that ably captures the book's characters and tone. Both readers provide narration that is well paced, smooth, and engaging. And, most importantly, in this story about switching places and mistaken identity, the readers make sure listeners are never confused about which character is which. This is a charming audio edition that will appeal to young listeners. Ages 12 — up. A Delacorte hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

LAUREN MORRILL grew up in Maryville, Tennessee, where she was a short-term Girl Scout, a (not so) proud member of the marching band, and a troublemaking editor for the school newspaper. She graduated from Indiana University with a major in history and a minor in rock and roll and lives in Macon, Georgia, with her husband and their dog, Lucy. She is also the author of Meant to Be. When she's not writing, she spends a lot of hours on the track getting knocked around playing roller derby.
