Book Description:

Seventeen-year-old Bronwen Oliver doesn't just want a family. She has one of those, and there's nothing terribly wrong with them apart from bickering grandparents, an image-obsessed mother and a brother she describes simply as Jesus. But there's no natural sense of connection between Bronwen and her family, leaving her with the belief -- and the hope -- that she was switched at birth, that she was never supposed to be Bronwen Oliver but someone else entirely.
When she begins dating college senior Jared Sondervan, she finds herself thoroughly embraced by the loving family she has always wanted and does not hesitate to say yes when Jared proposes on her 18th birhday. Plans for the Perfect Beach Wedding before her junior year of college become plans for the Perfect Beach Wedding before her freshman year of college. And a wedding so soon isn't exactly what Bronwen wants. But Jared is. And his family is. Or so she thinks.
Before Bronwen can determine what she truly wants, she must first determine who she truly is, and the answer, she discovers, is only partially what she thought it was. She wasn't switched at birth, but she's also not Bronwen Oliver and hasn't been for a very long time.

I Now Pronounce You Someone Else is a very fast paced and easy read. With this extremely quick pace it is easy to buzz through the pages at record speed. Although, I struggled because it was written very much like young adult though process jumpy and flighty. It takes a little bit to grasp the reading style so that you it does feel like the book rambles from topic. I liked the relationship and the storyline of this book, but it was not a must read that I do so love. Many young adults would easily relate and understand this book making it a wonderful read for the younger generation. McCahan has a very unique writing style that I is obvious from the first page. This style will make the read entertaining enough to see the ability of this author to truly create a story that read like the young generations thinks. This book was quick, easy, and fun.
