Title: Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks
Author: Lauren Myracle
Publisher: Dutton Books
"Wealth, privilege, and way too many pastel-tinted opinions... that's Carly's life. And guess what? It's. Getting. On. Her. Nerves.
Carly wants to be real, and she's always counted on her little sister, Anna, to love her and support her - and tell her how right she is. But when Anna turns "hot" over the course of a single summer, everything goes weird. Suddenly Anna's swimming in the deep end with the big girls - the plastic-perfect-pretty girls - while Carly watches, hurt, from the kiddie pool. And of course there are boys involved, complicating things as boys always do."
I've read a few other things by Myracle, and have loved it all. She just has this way of writing that is so light and fun and easy to read. This book was no exception.
This book has "great summer read" written all over it. It's absolutely cheesy, but that's what makes it so fun. A lot of the story is about the sister dynamic. And I'm not gonna lie... it makes me wish I had a sister - even though some if it is a bit rocky. Brothers just don't supply that kinda fun bond. Alas.
I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun, light, summer read. Especially if they're already into chick lit. I'm pretty sure the other reviews agree with me.
