Being Sloane Jacobs

Lauren Morrill, read by Shelby Lewis and Devon Sorvari. Listening Library, unabridged, eight CDs, 9.25 hrs., $50 ISBN 978-0-8041-2389-1
Morrill’s novel features two equally flawed and fascinating characters who happen to have very similar names: Sloane Emily Jacobs and Sloane Devon Jacobs. After a chance meeting in Canada, the two girls—one is a figure skater, the other is a hockey player—hatch a plan to trade places for the summer. Narrators Lewis and Sorvari each turn in a professional performance that ably captures the book’s characters and tone. Both readers provide narration that is well paced, smooth, and engaging. And, most importantly, in this story about switching places and mistaken identity, the readers make sure listeners are never confused about which character is which. This is a charming audio edition that will appeal to young listeners. Ages 12–up. A Delacorte hardcover. (Jan.)
