Switching places with someone else has never been more fun than in this novel about following your dreams and finding your heart from the author of Meant to Be.

Meet Sloane Emily Jacobs: a seriously stressed-out figure skater who choked during junior nationals and isn't sure she's ready for a comeback. What she does know is that she'd give anything to escape the mass of misery that is her life.

Now meet Sloane Devon Jacobs, a spunky ice hockey player who's been suspended from her team for too many aggressive hip checks. Her punishment? Hockey camp, now, when she's playing the worst she's ever played. If she messes up? Her life will be over.

When the two Sloanes meet by chance and decide to trade places for the summer, each girl thinks she's the lucky one. But it didn't occur to Sloane E. that while avoiding sequins and axels she might meet a hockey hottie?and Sloane D. never expected to run into a familiar (and very good-looking) face from home. It's not long before the Sloanes discover that convincing people you're someone else might be more difficult than being yourself.

?Escaping from your own life and fitting perfectly?and hilariously imperfectly?into someone else?s? Who doesn?t fantasize about that? Morrill nails this unforgettable story full of twists and romance.??Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door
