Sometimes, I wish I could give you my life for awhile. You're so perfect and smart and you always know what to do. I bet you'd get straight A's for me and choose all the best friends and make my life as flawless as yours.' Her kind words felt like lashings against my jealous heart. When Bryn sat back, she'd pulled herself together, and with the exception of a few straggling tear stains on her cheeks, she looked more like her strong confident self. As if she was suddenly aware that she looked bad, she wiped the back of her hand across her face and then even that sign of vulnerability was gone."
For months, Jesse has been envious of her twin sister Bryn and even has a crush on Bryn's gorgeous, popular boyfriend, Quinton. When Jesse awakens from a coma to learn that everyone thinks she IS Bryn, the option of actually taking over her sister's life is beyond tempting, but there's a downside. She'd have to give up Ethan, her best friend and the only person she trusts. Could she actually live as Bryn for the rest of her life? And if her family and friends found out, would they ever forgive her?

My Thoughts: The idea of this one, let me tell ya, is pretty intense. When I first picked it up, I'm not sure what it was that I was expecting, but when the moment comes where everyone thinks Jesse is Bryn... Yeah, that's when I discovered it was going to be different. Jesse pretending to be Bryn is a mix of hope and heartbreak. At first, you are trying to wrap your head around why Jesse would WANT to be Bryn, and you sort of get it. But then, you see the flipside of things and you're really flustered and wishing she hadn't made such a poor choice. Unfortunately though for Jesse, and sometimes for us, when faced with a split second decision, it's so easy to be confused and just jump over the fence expecting greener grass. And while she had to discover it the hard way, she still made the best of her situation, especially considering all the circumstances involved. Becoming Bryn went to places I didn't expect. You want to laugh and cry and swoon (yes, very much swooning indeed... there was an excellent kiss... not telling you with WHO though!) and not be able to put the book down because of it. Angela Carling knows how to hold together an intricate story and tell it in the best way possible. My Rating: Very Good
Mrs. Carling is a wonderful author. This book was breath taking I just couldnt put it down.
“Becoming Bryn” puts a whole new twist on twins trading places. Angela Carling does a wonderful job depicting the struggles of modern day high school and I loved how this book dealt realistically with issues teens face today. The main characters had me biting my nails at moments and cheering them on at others. The plot takes unexpected turns that will send you for a loop! Also, reading the two different perspectives kept me turning the pages as fast as I could read. It took me less than 24 hours to read this tale of twin sisters because I could not put it down! This is a story of growing up and learning from your mistakes. With laughs, tears, and a little romance, a happily ever after may be in the cards for these sisters after all.
