About the Book:

Her whole life, Alexia Garcia has been told that she looks just like pop
star Kari Kingsley, and one day when Alexia’s photo filters through the
Internet, she’s offered a job to be Kari’s double. This would seem like
the opportunity of a lifetime, but Alexia’s mother has always warned
her against celebrities.

Alexia flies off to L.A. and gets
immersed in a celebrity life. Not only does she have to get used to
getting anything she wants, she romances the hottest lead singer on the
charts, and finds out that her own father is a singing legend. Through
it all, Alexia must stay true to herself, which is hard to do when you
are pretending to be somebody else!

About the Author:

Janette Rallison has five
children who keep her well supplied with plot ideas, sometimes even
making cameo appearances in her novels. She likes to write romantic
comedy because there is enough angst in real life, but theres a drastic
shortage on both humor and romance.

Playing the Field was
named Society of School Librarians International Best Book Award Honor
Book, and both Alls Fair In Love, War, and High School and Love, Life,
and the Pursuit of Free Throws were included on YALSAs Popular
Paperbacks for Young Adults list. Fame Glory, and Other Things on My To
Do List, was just chosen for IRAs YA Choices list for 2007

My Thoughts:

Janette Rallison never fails to suck me in and keep turning pages until
I’ve devoured every last word. My Double Life is a fun and sweet story
about a girl who becomes a double for a famous singer in order to meet
her father.  Infused with great characters and Janette’s trademark
humor, this young adult novel will appeal to teens and adults alike.

The character development was fantastic. I became very invested in
Alexia and her story. I even cried at the end! You really can’t go wrong
with one of Rallison’s books.

    Aw! I feel bad about her situation. There's an underlying story plot going on with wanting to meet her father or so it seems to me. I would think that would be the most important thing for her to face in the story. I still haven't read Rallison's My Fair Godmother but I know if she wrote this it must be good (:

      The meeting of her father is definitely an important focus of the book. That's the part that made me cry.

    For some reason this reminds me of 52 Reasons to Hate my Father, maybe it's the celebrity thing 🙂 Can't wait to get my hands on this book! Great review.
