I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan (YA Review by Camryn)
Camryn stops in again with another YA read that has captured her heart!
I Now Pronounce You Someone Else
I Now Pronounce You Someone Else is a shorter novel written by Erin McCahan. Bronwen Oliver has never really related to her parents. She doesn’t look like them, she doesn’t act like them. Because of this, she developed a make believe scenario in which her name is Phoebe Lilywhite, and she was switched at birth with the real Bronwen Oliver. She and her best friend Kirsten have been doing this for years. Bronwen was dating Chad Dykstra, but the relationship was never serious and was ended. Bronwen is a senior in high school, preparing for college. At a coffee shop with Kirsten, she meets an adorable friend of her brothers, Jared Sondervan.
As the summer progresses, Bronwen falls for Jared, hard. And vice versa. But when Jared proposes, and Bronwen accepts, she’s not sure she made the right decision. As Bronwen figures out her feelings, she can’t help but wonder what she would do, were she Phoebe Lilywhite.
I really liked this book. I always love a good love story, and this one was sweet. It was well written, and the plot moved fast enough but not too fast. You learn lots of things about Bronwen that makes her seem more real, and I always see from the point of view of one character, usually the dominant one. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a novel with twists, turns, and a good ending.
