Review: Why Can't I Be You by Allie Larkin

Why Can't I Be You
by Allie Larkin

Publisher: Plume
Pages: 304
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  When Jenny Shaw hears someone shout “Jessie!” across a hotel lobby, she impulsively answers. All her life, Jenny has toed the line, but something propels her to seize the opportunity to become Jessie Morgan, a woman to whom she bears an uncanny resemblance. Lonely in her own life, Jenny is embraced by Jessie’s warm circle of friends—and finds unexpected romance. But when she delves into Jessie’s past, Jenny discovers a secret that spurs her to take another leap into the unknown.

Kritters Thoughts:  Jenny Shaw is headed on a work trip and her life is going down a path that she just isn't sure it is right for her, so she is given an interesting opportunity to put herself in another person's shoes for a little bit.  She finds the definition of friends, where her true passion lies and where she thinks she wants her future to go.

I absolutely ADORE books that have reunions!  I love the idea of people reuniting after years apart and seeing who are still friends and how the dynamics change from high school to the adult years.  This one put in an extra twist with Jenny "filling in" for a missing alum; I loved it.

My first Allie Larkin book and this will definitely not be my last!  I already have Stay on my shelves and can't wait to read it!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
