I Now Pronounce You Someone Else!

Today we are taking a sneak peek at a touching debut novel from Erin McCahan, I Now Pronounce You Someone Else, releasing from Arthur A. Levine Books on June 1st.

Here Comes the Bride -- If She Can Pass Chemistry.

Eighteen-year-old Bronwen Oliver has a secret: She's really Phoebe, the lost daughter of the loving Lilywhite family. That's the only way to explain her image-obsessed mother; a kind but distant stepfather; and a brother with a small personality complex. Bronwen knows she must have been switched at birth, and she can't wait to get away from her "family" for good.

Then she meets Jared Sondervan. He's sweet, funny, everything she wants -- and he has the family Bronwen has always wanted too. She falls head over heels in love, and when he proposes marriage, she joyfully accepts. But is Jared truly what she needs? And if he's not, she has to ask: What would Phoebe Lilywhite do?

I was lucky enough to snag an advanced copy last fall from author Erin McCahan, and I read it pretty much in one sitting! Here’s the blurb I wrote up:

"Fresh, funny, with a hero to-die-for, and charmingly written in a best-friend conversational style, I Now Pronounce You Someone Else is the perfect beach read...or perfect read for any season. Debut author Erin McCahan is a newcomer to watch!"

So yes, put this one on your summer reading list!
