This is a cute, simple story that falls along the Parent Trap idea. Switch places for the summer and change your life! It doesn't have the parents in it, of course, because the main characters are both sent off to a camp out of the country. It's an easy read, good for a day where you want some easy romance and a straightforward coming-of-age story. Rated lower simply because this plot has been done before many times.

One word: adorable. I don't usually go for contemporary, but this one caught my eye. I'm pretty glad it did. Sloane Emily Jacobs just wants to get away from her rich-girl reporter-filled life. And of course, figure skating. After messing up in finals three years ago, this is supposed to be her big comeback. But who wants her to do this? Her? Or her Mother? Sloane Devon Jacobs is a tough-as-nails hockey player who thinks figure skating is a joke. After a fight, she's being shipped off to hockey camp to avoid being benched for the first games of the season. The thing is, she doesn't think she can keep at it. She's been choking lately, and can't make a single shot. So when the girls meet the night before their respective camps, they realize: When would we ever get the chance to do this again? And so they switch. Sloane E. Jacobs goes to hockey camp and Sloane D. Jacobs goes to figure skating camp. I thought this was a cute, quirky novel that was just fun to read. I would recommend it, but to who, I'm not sure yet.
