Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine
meant to highlight an upcoming release we're excited for!
Delacorte BYR, 256 pages
Expected US Release Date: January 7, 2014
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.
Meant To Be was one of my favourite reads of 2012 (and EVER), and this one sounds like it will be just as amazing. I love this concept of switching lives to escape (loved it even when Model Behavior tried it - YEAH I JUST REFERENCED JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE'S FIRST MOVIE), and can't wait to see what happens with it. Also? I am totally a closet figure skate lover. I love love LOVE the sport, and you can bet your buttons every winter olympics that is all qeued up in my DVR. I also catch all the obscure competitions and love Johnny Weir and may still want to marry Evan Lysacek (stand aside, Vera Wang).
