Identical Differences by Erynn Mangum
This is a new book by my favorite author, Erynn Mangum! This book is a kindle-only book, but you can read it even if you don't have a kindle! Download the free kindle app for your phone or your computer and you can read it from there!
Alexia Patterson has spent her whole life waiting to get out of small town Longsville, Oregon. Her twin sister, Rachel, is a completely different story. When Rachel calls to tell Lexi that she’s engaged and asks her to come home for a few weeks before the wedding, Lexi is anything but eager to go back to Longsville. Add in Justin MacPherson, a guy she’s hated since junior high, and the two weeks are not looking good. Surely God’s plan isn’t to make Lexi insane, right?
Erynn Mangum writes the funniest, Chrstian fiction novels about young women. I love her books and the purity in them. Her characters are so easy to relate to that I feel like they are my best friends while I am reading the book. This is a novella, so it is supposed to be short. However, I thought this one may have been too short. Erynn usually does a great job with her novellas (and her novels :) but I felt like the characters in this book needed to be developed a little more. While it was a very cute story and perfect for the summer time, I wanted to know more about these characters. This is such an easy read. I read it in a couple hours and I definitely suggest it. This is the only book of Erynn's that I have yet to be obsessed with, but it was still a very sweet story that I enjoyed reading.
