Synopsis from Goodreads: When Abby signs up for a DNA service, it’s mainly to give her friend and secret love interest, Leo, a nudge. After all, she knows who she is already: Avid photographer. Injury-prone tree climber. Best friend to Leo and Connie…although ever since the B.E.I. (Big Embarrassing Incident) with Leo, things have been awkward on that front.
But she didn’t know she’s a younger sister.
When the DNA service reveals Abby has a secret sister, shimmery-haired Instagram star Savannah Tully, it’s hard to believe they’re from the same planet, never mind the same parents — especially considering Savannah, queen of green smoothies, is only a year and a half older than Abby herself.
The logical course of action? Meet up at summer camp (obviously) and figure out why Abby’s parents gave Savvy up for adoption. But there are complications: Savvy is a rigid rule-follower and total narc. Leo is the camp’s co-chef, putting Abby's growing feelings for him on blast. And her parents have a secret that threatens to unravel everything.
But part of life is showing up, leaning in, and learning to fit all your awkward pieces together. Because sometimes, the hardest things can also be the best ones.
My Review: This is such a fun book! I had a great time reading this one. It had a parent trap vibe, without the identical twin aspect. The writing was really easy and flowing and I loved the sense of humor that Lord infuses into her books. I loved that this book wasn't super romance heavy. Sure its there, but this is a story about family and history and that plays a much bigger role than the romance aspect. I always think that YA books are sometimes too heavy on the romance. Overall I really enjoyed this and definitely recommend it! Though I do think that it makes a better summer read.
