Blog Tour Host: Irresistible Reada

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 Review

ARC given in exchange for a review for the tour. 

Have you ever wonered what it would be like having a twin? I have. I mean, I wished I had a twin so many times. I always thought it would be fun to share the same face and that kind of stuff. But I never thought twins would have these type of problems.

BECOMING BRYN tells the story of Jesse and Bryn, twin sisters that drew apart after one got pushed up the social ladder. Jesse wants to feel loved, she wants to be loved. People around her acted as if she was just a stranger while they give all their time and love to Bryn. All except Ethan. I kind of know how Jesse was feeling, in fact, everyone that has a sibling knows how Jesse feels. We all feel like that. Like your family loves your sister/brother more than you. I always feel that. So I know exactly how Jesse was feeling and I understood her view completely.

I felt the same for Bryn. She is just like her sister, she hates her life and wants to swap it with Jesse's. It was like as if both sisters were blind. They both wanted each other's life. So when they were in a car accident that killed Bryn, everyone thinks Jesse is Bryn.

Some people doesn't understand why Jesse didn't fight back and say that she's Jesse. But I understood. She didn't want Bryn's fame at the top of the social ladder, in fact, she just wanted to feel loved for once. So with her family thinking that she is Bryn, she's glad. It might've been wrong, but she just didn't know it yet.

And the addition of Quinton and Ethan was great! Quinton was a great guy, even though he'd made some mistakes. And Ethan was just...Ethan. He was really likeable, but most of the time, we didn't get to see him much.

This book was really enjoyable, I always had it in my hand and kept reading it and didn't stop until I got to the end. Fans of realistic and young adult fiction will really enjoy this!!
