I really enjoyed this story, told in a series of e-mails and letters. In a sort of modern-day "Parent Trap" with a twist, Avery and Bett find out that their fathers are dating and have arranged for them both to go to the same summer camp so they can get to know one another, as their dads are getting serious and thinking about marriage. At first, both girls are vehemently against the idea and refuse to cooperate, but have been secretly communicating via e-mail.

Much to their surprise, Avery and Bett find themselves becoming friends even though they have nothing in common, and before long they are excited about the idea of being sisters and begin making wedding plans. But much to their dismay, their fathers' relationship has begun to unravel and they have an ugly breakup. But the girls aren't ready to give up on the idea of becoming a family, and plot to get their dads back together.

This is a sweet, touching story that helps redefine the meaning of family and shows that families can change, blend, and grow in many different ways.
