Waiting On Wednesday (114)

This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of!

Being Sloane Jacobs
By Lauren Morrill
Release Date: January 7, 2014
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.


Does this book look good or what? I love the idea that the two girls have the same name yet have completely different lives. Well, except for the fact that they're both about to face a little romance in their lives. I love how one's an ice skater and one's a hockey player, and they meet to trade places. And the cover is so pretty! Needless to say, I'm excited for this one to come out.

  4. My first thought was The Cutting Edge where the hockey player becomes a figure skater after an injury. I will have to watch for some reviews of this one, but it sounds like a cute idea. Thanks for sharing!!
