Book Description: It's spring break of her senior year and Madison Van Buren is fed up. Stressed over Ivy League pressure, her parents' marital problems, and her boyfriend's neglect, Madison gets in her car and drives west. Meanwhile, eighteen-year-old Anna Bronner wants to escape the so-called simple life--which for her consists of caring for younger siblings, sewing, cooking, and gardening--and she's well aware that her future will simply be more of the same with a man she doesn't love. Suddenly, worlds collide when Madison and Anna meet in a small town, realize they look uncannily similar, and decide the grass is definitely greener on the other side.
My Take: This isn't your ol' twin sister switch to play a joke. These are two girls that don't know each other and just happen to look enough a like to be able to switch places. Madison is overwhelmed by the pressures from her mother, father, and her boyfriend; and it's just spring break! Anna has all of the pressures of the Amish lifestyle, however, her Aunt is due to have a baby and she doesn't want to go and deal with her little ones. So these girls decide to trade places and the FUN that takes place is quite the story! This is a definite must read and would be a great beach read!
