Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill

Sloane Emily Jacobs will be attending elite figure skating camp all summer. It is an escape from the spotlight of her senator dad and her family’s issues. Sloane Devon Jacobs is forced to go to hockey summer camp in order to stay on her high school team. She is also looking for an escape from her family as her mom is temporarily is gone from her household. When the two Sloane Jacobs literally run into each other the night before both camps, they strike a plan to switch lives for the summer.  Each camp is far different than what each novice expects and of course each experiences a little bit of romance while pretending to be someone they are not.

Miss Katie says, “This fun adventure has sports, romance, and adventure. Each chapter alternates between the two Sloanes’ perspectives. It’s a fun read that keeps you wanting to know what happens next, while serving as a thoughtful look at what it’s like to glide in someone else’s skates. Readers - if you fondly remember Parent Trap, then this one is for you!”  330 p.   Grades 7 – 10
