Praise

“Escaping from your own life and fitting perfectly—and hilariously imperfectly—into someone else’s? Who doesn’t fantasize about that? Morrill nails this unforgettable story full of twists and romance.” —Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door

Hello Giggles, January 11, 2013:
Being Sloane Jacobs was super cute, super hilarious and a totally fun read.”

Justine Magazine, Feb/March 2014:
“Charming and feisty characters (and crush-worthy guys!) make this a guaranteed-to-leave-you-smiling read.”

Kirkus Reviews, November 15, 2013:
“The two strong teens carry the text, providing an enjoyable, on-ice adventure. A thoughtful reminder that it is difficult to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes—or in this case, skates.”

Booklist, January 1, 2014:
“Rather than skating on the surface of a time-honored plot twist, Morrill portrays each Sloane with the grit to cross-train in a new skating sport, the perseverance to withstand the competitors’ bullying and hijinks, the honesty to be true to new friends or at least struggle in the challenge, and the grace to respect each other’s futures…A sweet and satisfying resolution.”

Publishers Weekly, December 2, 2013:
“Morrill (Meant To Be) delivers a twist on the identity-swap that’s both cozily familiar and fresh…A relatable coming-of-age story.”

School Library Journal, January 2014:
“Woven through the story are threads about family, friendship, identity, and romance…This coming-of-age novel sports good character development, especially in the talented doppelgängers.”

Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, February 2014:
“This is a feel-good story with flashes of honesty: the two girls learn to respect each other (and each other’s sport) without become besties, find themselves capable of surviving in unfamiliar territory without discovering latent genius, and ultimately make tentative peace with their families while knowing the road to healing will be long…This book will suit romantics who hadn’t thought to wonder what would happen if The Parent Trap met The Cutting Edge.”
