Waiting On Wednesday #47

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morill
Publication Date: January 7th 2014 

Goodreads Summary:

Meet Sloane Emily Jacobs: a seriously stressed-out figure-skater from Washington, D.C., 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 from Philly 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 in Montreal and decide to trade places for the summer, each girl thinks she’s the lucky one: no strangers to judge or laugh at Sloane Emily, no scouts expecting Sloane Devon to be a hero. 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.

I'd love to see what you are waiting on this Wednesday so link me up!

  4. This sounds like a really sweet book. Although I wonder how they pull of a swap if they aren't related. Good choice though.

  11. It's definitely one of my prized possessions. I never imagined I'd get to interact with the author of one of my favorite books! And I wouldn't have had the courage to contact him if I didn't start blogging :)

    Re: Being Sloane Jacobs. Oh my that sounds interesting! I thought it would just be another one of those boy-meets-girl but apparently...it's not? This is definitely an apt entry for Waiting on Wednesday :)

    Thanks for visiting, Sarika. Have a nice day! :)
