Released May 2010

Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

Imagine closely resembling a Hollywood star. In fact, the resemblance is so close that you could easily act as that star's double. That's exactly what happens to Alexis Garcia. She looks so similar to musician Kari Kingsley that she's asked to take a job posing as Alexis for certain functions.

Alexis comes from a modest household where they've never had a lot of money, so being paid upwards of $20,000 per month is extremely tempting. When Alexis learns that her absentee father happens to be in California and that she could possibly meet him, she decides to go against her mother's advice and take the job.

My Double Life will thrill young adult readers. The writing is engaging and characters are likable, even the spoiled pop princess Kari who somehow manages to worm her way into this reader's heart. There's a touch of romance in a storyline involving another singing sensation and Alexis, only he thinks she is Kari.

Fans of Gossip Girl books will likely enjoy Janette Rallison's upcoming novel. It's due out in May and promises to be a book most girls will love, especially those who enjoy being swept up in romance.
