This one charmed my socks right off, which was the last thing I expected.
It’s a classic Parent Trap situation, where two teenagers, both named Sloane Jacobs meet up. One Sloane is a hockey player, and the other is a figure skater. They’ve been exiled to Canada to attending skating camps, against their wishes. When they have a luggage mix-up at the hotel, they have to meet up to sort things out. That’s when they decide they look similar enough that with the same names, they could totally swap places, in order to avoid spending the summer working towards things they both dread, for various reasons.
Since I’m a sucker for all things Parent Trap, this one really clicked with me. You get to see both the girls change, grow, and confront their own personal demons. Plus, it has a really delightful ending, as should any Parent Trap-eque situation.
This book made me happy.
