Image of I Now Pronounce You Someone Else

A classic story of identity and growing up, with a far happier ending than could be expected. McCahan’s writing is engaging and her characters are so real they’re ready to jump off the page. Any young woman will feel a kinship with Bronwen as she attempts to navigate some of life’s toughest choices.

Bronwen has known since she was little that she must have been switched at birth. In reality she is Phoebe Lilywhite and one day her normal family will come and pick her up. In the meantime, her mother pretends everything is fine, her brother might as well be Jesus and her stepfather isn’t the dad she needs. Enter Jared Sondervan, who has eyes only for her, and his wonderfully normal family. He’s about to graduate college, just as she finishes high school. Falling in love is inevitable. So they plan to get married right before Bronwen’s first semester at school. Except, is she Bronwen? Or Phoebe? Or Mrs. Sondervan? And just who does she want to be? (ARTHUR A.
