Sometimes it is the one who knows you best who can love you best.

Penny has lived her life letting others take the reins, leaving her to simply follow in line. After completing her senior year of College she’ll join her father’s marketing firm, get married and start a family.

When her parents drop a bomb on her — that they are getting divorced — Penny decides it’s time to start living by her own rules. And when she meets mysterious P.J. Hawthorne, a published writer who seems to know much more about Penny than she lets on, she knows this is her chance to finally get her life moving in the right direction.

But as questions about her new life overwhelm her, so do thoughts of sweet and gorgeous Alex — who just so happens to be her best friend.

What follows is a series of poor decisions, each one more worrisome than the last, forcing Penny further and further away from not only Alex, but from becoming the woman she’s sure she’s meant to be.


This is the first book that I have been fortunate enough to read from author Rachel Del and I can happily tell you that it will not be my last. When I first came across this book on YA Bound Book Tours I jumped at the opportunity to read and review it. The cover was what immediately drew me to this book and once I read the synopsis I was hooked.

How To Be Someone Else by Rachel Del was a beautifully written story that revolves around self-discovery, friendship and love that follows Penny and Alex’s story of new beginnings. After Penny’s parents announce their plans to divorce she begins questioning what she’s believed to be true her entire life. This book was told in alternating point-of-views that added a new element to the story. I absolutely adored this aspect of the book because I was able to see both sides of this story unfold. Penny and Alex’s story takes us on a journey that captures your attention from beginning to end!

I strongly recommend this book and hope who ever reads it loves it too. To find out what happens in this amazing book pick up your copy today!
