Friday

Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill

 

I've always been a fan of switched lives movies, Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, The Change Up. From my very first experience with Haley Mills in the original Parent Trap, I've always loved the premised. The potential for disaster is always imminent, while the main characters always learn a great lesson in the end about how it's not always better from the other side. 

Being Sloane Jacobs is a modern day take on the classic switched lives genre. Rather than twins, the two girls are conveniently both world class teen skaters with the same name. The difference is, one is a rich girl with an Olympic figure skating career ahead of her. The other Sloane Jacobs is a tough girl from the wrong side of the tracks who beats up the other girls on the ice hockey rink. 

There are a few too many coincidences to make it plausible, same name, same looks, same chin scar, same skating ability and it goes on and on. Yet, if you suspend your disbelief for just a minute, you can really get into the story. Each girl has their faults and their advantages. In the end, they of course learn their grand lesson about life.. I know I sound a little bit skeptical about this one, but I actually really enjoyed it. Lauren Morrill makes a very unbelievable story, believable.
