Mistaken or Assumed Identities for Teens

People don’t always need a stage and a spotlight to play a role. Whether it’s a case of mistaken identity, trying to become someone they aren’t, or maybe serving as a spy, people don't need a stage to assume new identities.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore — In a world where some people are born with extreme and often-feared skills called Graces, Katsa struggles for redemption from her own horrifying Grace, the Grace of killing, and teams up with another young fighter to save their land from a corrupt king.


What happened to goodbye by Sarah Dessen — Seventeen-year-old Mclean begins to lose sight of who she really is after she tries to reinvent herself at each school she attends after her parents' divorce and her father moves her from town to town.


Openly straight by Bill Konigsberg — Tired of being known as "the gay kid", Rafe Goldberg decides to assume a new persona when he comes east and enters an elite Massachusetts prep school--but trying to deny his identity has both complications and unexpected consequences.
