We’re kicking off another week-long book feature here at Novel Novice (we’ve got lots of ’em lately, have you noticed?) … and today, we are honored to be part of the blog tour for Erin McCahan’s new novel, I Now Pronounce You Someone Else. This week, we’ll bring you our review of the book, an exclusive Q&A with Erin, a guest blog from Erin AND a chance for you to win a copy of the book!
But first, let’s start off with what it’s all about:
High school senior Bronwen Oliver swore she was switched at birth. She has nothing in common with her stoic, blonde mother or her ketchup loving brother and dreams only of her fantastical family, the Lilywhites, coming to take her away.
However, when 22-year-old Jared Sondervan comes into her life she can hardly believe how lucky she is. He is respectful, sweet and a part of the most wonderful family Bronwen has ever met. When Jared proposes she doesn’t hesitate to say yes. But as the wedding draws closer she has to decide whether she wants to be a Sondervan or fully embrace being Bronwen Oliver.
I Now Pronounce You Someone Else dives into the heart of teenage identity and subtly encourages the reader to consider all aspects that shape who we become as adults. Without pushing any one agenda, McCahan masterfully demonstrates the beauty and benefits of following your dreams. Abstinence, female empowerment and growing up too fast inexplicitly weave their way through Bronwen Oliver’s transitional story. Amidst self-discovery, a warm romance keeps you turning pages to see what will happen next.
