Eden Morgan makes a list of six goals to accomplish in order to have the best summer ever. Getting a boyfriend, which is perhaps the most important goal, becomes complicated when she and her best friend, Lexi, fall for the same guy. Since Lexi is popular, gorgeous, and always gets her guy, Eden thinks she doesn’t have a chance.
Channing Johnson is everything Eden’s ever dreamed of and she can’t believe he just moved in next door. When he starts showing interest in her, she’s overjoyed…until she sees him out on a date with Lexi. He says Lexi talked him into it to repay her for tutoring him. Lexi says they’re in love.
Eden doesn’t know who to believe and is forced to choose between her best friend and the guy of her dreams. Nothing is as it seems and no matter who she chooses, someone will get hurt.
Character Interview of Eden Morgan
So, Eden, when you listed getting a boyfriend as one of your six goals for the best summer ever, what kind of guy did you have in mind?
First of all, he’d have to be a Christian. Second, my parents would have to like him and approve. Third, he’d have to be gorgeous.
You’re a Christian and your friend, Lexi, is a wild party girl. You don’t seem to have enough in common to be BFFs.
Actually, our moms were best friends when we were born and we kind of grew up together. You’re right, she’s wild and a little crazy sometimes. I guess I hoped that maybe she’d start going to church with me and leave the party scene behind.
What about Channing do you love?
What’s not to love? He’s a jock, my parents love him, and he’s good to me. I’ve never had the greatest self-esteem and it makes me feel better about myself just to be around him. I never would have guessed in a million years that I could land a guy like Channing.
But, you went to a dance with Jeremy, not Channing. What was up with that?
Okay, I know Jeremy is Lexi’s ex-boyfriend, so before you start lecturing me, let me give you the details. Jeremy and I have been friends forever. He’s like my best guy friend. Anyway, he was feeling really down over Lexi dumping him and needed a date. I felt sorry for him, so I went to cheer him up. Plus, things weren’t exactly going that great between me and Channing at that moment anyway.
What did you learn in Mistaken Identity?
I learned that sometimes even BFFs can’t be trusted, especially when it comes to guys. I learned that if you really love a guy, sometimes you just have to trust him, no matter how bad things look. And, I learned that sometimes BFFs don’t stay BFFs forever and that’s okay.
I’ve heard there will be a sequel to Mistaken Identity. Will you be in it?
The sequel to Mistaken Identity is called Shattered Identity. It will be out in March. It’s Lexi’s story and I’ll play a small part, but I’m taking a back seat so she can tell her story.
