Summaries and Excerpts: I now pronounce you someone else / Erin McCahan.
She falls head over heels in love, and when he To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Lists with This Book. I find it pretty, lovely somrone overall just beauteous!
The characters were great in this story. Bronwen really resonated with me. I respected her morals and how she stood by what she believed in. His way with words and his sincerity had me sighing and smiling like a goof every time he opened his mouth!
Oh and that first kiss. That was one of the best written moments in the love department. Again, another perfectly written moment. I never came to care for Peter and I wondered why he kept himself at a distance, some additional insight on that character would have been nice, but definitely not a deal breaker. The storyline was original and well presented as Bronwen struggles to discover who she really is after the death of her father.
She calls herself Pheobe Lillywhite Gawd! Along comes Jared and a whirlwind romance ensues with all the perfect moments of first love. Here is one book I would have loved to read an epilogue for.
I can pretty much imagine my own ending, but putting it to paper makes it more real. Overall, what a fun, light romance in the YA genre that really hit home in so many ways! So good night Bronwen. Song Choice – Jared to Bronwen: Calling You — Blue October View all 24 comments. This is one of those books that I can really gush over for forever. It was sweet and endearing and just plain sweet.
The story is about Bronwen and her life after her father past way some time ago. Her mom is pretty much nonexsistent. She only wants Bronwen to be polite and respectful of others no matter the cost to Bronwen. Whitt, Bronwen’s stepdad, is there for as much as he can be even though she is holding onto a very big grudge.
While dealing with her life she bumps into Jared, a friend of This is one of those books that I can really gush over for forever. While dealing with her life she bumps into Jared, a friend of her brothers from school and they hit it off from the start. Jared is so sweet and what we get to see is what happens when two people meet and fall in love at the wrong time. I found their situation very realistic and I can totally see why McCahan chose to put her characters through so much.
I loved the way it ended! My only complaint is that I would have liked to learn more about Peter, Bronwens brother, and what makes him the golden son. He seemed absent enough that he could have been left out all together imo. Other than that I loved this book and I will definitely keep track of this author!

It was an enjoyable break from the catty, sex-crazed teen novels, or the teen vampire novels, or the dark, depressing, anguish-filled teen abuse novels that are in abundance. It isn’t that these other books don’t have a place but I frequently crave a book about a normal girl, with normal friends who isn’t sleeping around, drinking, swearing, dressing like a vamp or eating like oneand has normal dreams and a I like this book.
It isn’t that these other books don’t have a place but I frequently crave a book about a normal girl, with normal friends who isn’t npw around, drinking, swearing, dressing like a vamp or eating like oneand has normal dreams and aspirations. And although I would say our heroine Bronwen fits these criteria, she is also not normal.
After all, who is? Bronwen is a high school senior, loving her boyfriend and eager to marry him. After all, he’s perfect, they’re perfect together. She’s not crazy about her family, loves his. Marriage right after high school will solve all her problems or will it? Although I’ll admit that Bronwen loves Jared and they’re love is more than just lust or a moment, some of Bronwen’s desires to belong to a family that appreciates her and loves her unconditionally drive her to Jared and his offer of marriage.
It’s something that I’ve seen a number of times in my own friends lives – a hope and desire that they will be better and have better lives by marrying someone.
And while I think this can be true my husband has helped me to be a much cmcahan person than I would be on my own – it can’t yyou deniedstill to put all your hopes for something better into someone else can only end in disappointment. Bronwen’s struggles to understand who she is and what she wants out of life are well-written and understandable and I think the book could help any osmeone to realize that young marriage isn’t categorically wrong but who you are in high school, college, as a teen, in your twenties changes nccahan so that often who you were one year hou the things you wanted are much different later.
The themes of acceptance and unconditional love run throughout this book and I found Bronwen’s relationship to her stepfather and even her mother to be profound and heartbreaking. In this seemingly light YA novel, so much more was at play, without being heavy or depressing. I ended the book with the urge to hold my husband and thank him for who he was, who we were when we were married, pronoubce for how far we’ve come along.
I can only hope that teens who read it will find solace and enjoyment in reading a book about a girl who can have a high moral ground without being a loser, can make mistakes but find reparations, and knows how to find herself and the things she wants without losing sight of her dreams and hopes. Bronwen Oliver is a year old girl with an identity crisis.
She lives with her mother, step-father and sometimes her college mccahann brother in East Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her problem is that she doesn’t feel that she fits in or belongs to anyone. Why had her beloved father died at such a young age?
Why couldn’t her mother accept her for who she was? What happened to the plan her step-father had to adopt her?
I Now Pronounce You Someone Else
All of these questions lead her to conclude that she must have been switched at birth. A Bronwen Oliver is a year old girl with elsf identity crisis. A resolution to this quandry just might be found in Jared Sondervan. Bronwen bumps into the good-looking, college guy during the summer before his senior year of college.
Their attraction is immediate and it is soon apparent that Jared is the perfect boyfriend. It doesn’t hurt that he also comes from a perfect family. In fact, just the kind of family that Bronwen mccaha always dreamed of. So, when Jared proposed on Sokeone 18th birthday, she knew that all her dreams were coming true. The only problem is that the closer pronouce wedding day gets, the less sure Bronwen becomes. Is she really ready for marriage or is she simply trading one identity crisis for another?
I really liked this book. Bronwen, at 17, is a young woman who is a contrast in her own life. On one hand she is very confident of the kind of girl she wants to be and things she wants to do.
I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan
She is willing to stand up for what she believes in regardless pronoounce who she has to stand up to. On the other hand, she is very insecure in her identity within herself and her family. These are things that I think every girl goes through. I appreciated the fact that this isn’t just a teen romance.
While there is a lot of teen romance within the story, the main theme is that it is important to find out who you are as a person and be happy with that.
Bronwen learns that a guy, no matter how perfect ern and his family are, isn’t necessarily the answer to a happy life. I also like that the story doesn’t end with a happy-ever-after wrapped up in a big bow ending. Bronwen’s life is still a work in progress but she is happy with the choices she has mccaha. And really, isn’t that what we’re all hoping for?
