Cute book and sometimes charming. I don't have a sister but it seemed like the were always trying to one-up on another. It seemed to lack authenticity sometimes. For example, some things appeared contrived or just too well written to have been in a personal, non-edited letter. Good light read.

I must be 30 years too old for this.

Great if you want a light read with lots of laughs! There was a lot that you could relate to about relationships & life in general! You often couldn't just leave one letter until you found out what happened next, in the next correspondence. Definitely a book for the ladies!!

Loved this book. Lighthearted and truly a conversation between two sisters. I have two of my own and this book so reminded me of talks we had before we all got married. The real conversations you have so rarely as an unguarded adult.

Not one of my favorites but when I read it while at work, my co-workers wondered why I kept getting the giggles :-). Parts of the book were hilarious. Glad I read it but it won't be a twice-read book.

Forced myself to read at least half of the book...couldn't go on. It has it's funny moments, but not enough to hold my attention.

Pretty good. It is how I imagine sisters would talk to each other as they enter adulthood and friendship.

Super funny but no plot, climax etc. Reminded me of texts between my friends and I discussing our latest observations.
