"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's WoW selection is...

Title: Being Sloane Jacobs
Author: Lauren Morrill
Series: n/a
Publisher: Delacorte
Publication Date: January 7, 2014

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.

I just loved Lauren Morrill's debut, Meant to Be, to pieces, and I'm expecting this sophomore novel to be just as adorable.  And from the sounds of it, I won't be disappointed.  :)  Also, I love this cover.  It's so colorful and cute, just like the one for MtB.  I'm sensing a pattern

(My daughter was sitting with me when I was working on this post, and we're taking her to see Despicable Me 2 tomorrow, so she pretty much told me I  had to post this GIF since we are also waiting on this movie.  :D)

Now that you know what I'm dying to read, what are you waiting on this week?  Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so I can stop by!
