Waiting on Wednesday: Being Sloane Jacobs

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of 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 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 adore Morrill's book Meant to Be, so much so that she is now an auto-buy author for me, and that usually doesn't happen after just one book. Even without that I would want this book so much simply for the concept. And then there is the cover. (Which is going to look gorgeous on my shelf next to Meant to Be.) The wait for January 7, 2014 is going to be a long one. Sigh.

    1. Lauren Morrill is wonderful. Of course I just have her first book and her Twitter feed to go on for that. But still. I stand by it.
