Praise for Why Can’t I Be You

“A charming, heart-felt story of love, laughter, and borrowed identity, Why Can’t I Be You explores the brilliant notion that it’s not until we’ve let go of who we think we should be that we can discover who we actually are.”—Amy Hatvany, USA Today bestselling author of Outside the Lines

“An engaging and smart novel with rich characters.”— Red Hot Book of the Week 

“A fun and quirky read for anyone who always wondered what it would be like to live life in someone else’s shoes. Readers will likely identify with the main character, and will definitely enjoy the crazy ride along the way thanks to Larkin’s breezy and light writing style.”—RT Book Reviews 

“The wonderful dialogue and character development make it easy to get swept up and wonder not who would I rather be, but what am I holding back?”—The Gazette 

“An unexpected and completely fresh take on the familiar theme of mistaken identity…. She’s a master at creating complex characters who feel like old friends and crafting situations that you’d swear really happened. In other words? I adored this book! Put Allie Larkin on your Authors to Watch List because she’s at the top her game.”—Jen Lancaster, bestselling author of Jeneration X  

“Allie Larkin’s latest explores an intriguing question: What if you could shed your own life, and step into someone else’s? Why Can’t I Be You is a thoughtful and compulsively readable examination of identity, friendship and trust—and what happens when all three spectacularly collide.”—Sarah Pekkanen, bestselling author of These Girls
