Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
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

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

The wait for January 7, 2014 is going to be a long one. Sigh.
