Being Sloane Jacobs Teen Book Being Sloane Jacobs

4 stars.

When both Sloanes meet at a hotel the night before their camps, they decide to switch places for their four week trips.

What did you think: I really, really liked this book and I was never bored! I wasn't sure what was going to end up happening with them both in vaguely related yet still vastly different fields of sport, and their family drama unfolding as you go on. Emily Jacobs' family bugged me so much, especially her uptight upper-crust mom! I feel like it ended great, too.
