Waiting on Wednesday (49)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren  Morrill (1/7/14):

Description from Goodreads:
Meet Sloane Emily Jacobs: a seriously stressed-out figure-skater from Washington, D.C., 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 from Philly 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 in Montreal and decide to trade places for the summer, each girl thinks she’s the lucky one: no strangers to judge or laugh at Sloane Emily, no scouts expecting Sloane Devon to be a hero. 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.
So, I loved Morrill’s other book: Meant to Be. I am definitely loving this author’s/publisher’s cover layout. Everything about the cover screams adorable! Yes, the description sounds a tad bit like a Disney channel original movie; however, I don’t care. Sometimes, I just want a predictable, yet cute, easy-to-read contemporary. And I have a feeling that is exactly what I’d get with this. The trouble will be waiting till January…
What are you waiting on this week?
