Stacking the Shelves: Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill

Switching places has never been so much fun—or so romantic—in this real and endearing novel about two girls who share the same name.
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.

I am looking forwards to reading Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill, the newest book on my (digital) shelf this week. We received an ARC and are pretty jazzed. Do you all remember how adorable Meant to Be was!?! (If not, ta daaaaa here is my review). A big thanks to Tynga's Reviews for hosting Stacking the Shelves. Let us know what you got this weekend!
