really liked it
bookshelves: female-friendship
Recommended for: those close to their siblings
Read in June, 2008

This is a very touching book about sisterhood, only it's tackled in a way which I found to be very true-to-life. The gripes the sister's have about each other, the love that they share which is very unique, as any person who has a close bond with their sibling can relate to.

My favourite thing about this book was the fact that although they both witnessed the same events they remember them in completely different ways to each other. That is something I think we should all try to remember: that no matter how we're affected by something the person next to you will be seeing it in a completely different way and reacting to it accordingly.

I was sad to see the end of this book. The ending was bittersweet and brought tears to my eyes. This is a story that is both moving and funny: a book I will definitely be recommending to others.
