Fifteen-year-old Carly's summer volunteer experience makes her feel more real than her life of privilege in Atlanta ever did, but her younger sister starts high school pretending to be what she is not, and both find their relationships suffering.
The drama and love between sisters as they grow-up is the focus of Lauren Myracle's young adult novel. At 15, Carly feels like a stranger in her wealthy, sheltered life in Atlanta, and is closest to her younger sister, Anna. But when she returns from a summer of finding herself in Tennessee, she's upset to discover that Anna is no longer the down-to-earth girl that she knew, but a sex kitten who has embraced all of the shallowness Carly abhors. Can they stay close with all the changes that being a teen brings? Myracle's humor and sensitivity to the challenges teen girls face, and sisters in particular cope with, is engaging and sweet.
