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?

I have received this book as part of a blog tour in exchange of an honest review.
Jesse has always been a little jealous of her twin sister’s popularity and even of her boyfriend. When she wakes up from a coma, she realized that after an accident took place everyone thinks she is Bryn. It’s tempting to become Bryn but can Jesse let go of her best friend – Ethan – to become the person she always wanted to be?
Jesse is a good main character. She’s used to seeing her twin sister shine and be popular while she doesn’t and is not. She just wants people to love her like they seem to love Bryn.
Bryn wasn’t so different from Jesse, actually. She also wanted what Bryn had and thought her sister’s life was better than hers.
Quinton and Ethan are good characters as well and definitely bring something to the story. Ethan is quite likeable and so is Quinton, who’s an all-around great guy despite everything.
Plot wise, I enjoyed reading about Jesse and the reasons why she didn’t tell anyone who she really was after the accident. She has to make some hard decisions while finding out what’s best for her.
All in all, Becoming Bryn is a good, well-written book about a not normally tackled subject.
If you like a good and interesting Young Adult book, you should give this one a try.
