Another amazing book from Lauren Myracle:
Carly is a free-spirit–she loves dressing like a flower child, listening to sixties music, and doing everything she can to differentiate herself from her fellow students at Holy Redeemer High School, including her sister Anna.
Over the summer, Anna transformed from Carly’s little sis into a beautiful high school freshman with an enviable figure.
The girls’ relationship is tested numerous times over the course of the semester when confronted with crazy hair, high dives, boys, new friends, ex-friends, clueless parents, parties, and of course, baby ducks.
This is a wonderful book! As usual, Ms. Myracle presents us with a wonderful (albeit flawed) main character who we’d love to hang out with. Throughout the novel, we love Carly, regardless of her missteps. We wince when her hair is ruined, silently plead with her to recognize Roger for the great catch that he is, and cheer every time she and Anna manage to work things out.
A fast, fun & perfect beach read!
