Synopsis:
Sisters April and Jenn haven’t been close in years. Jenn’s too busy with school, the family antique shop, and her boyfriend, and April would rather play soccer and hang out with the boy next door.
But when April notices her older sister is sad about staying home for college, she decides to do something about it. The girls set off to revive a pact they made as kids: spend an epic day exploring the greatest hits of their childhood and all that Los Angeles has to offer.
Then April learns that Jenn has been keeping a secret that could rip their family—and their feuding parents—apart. With only one day to set things right, the sisters must decide if their relationship is worth saving, or if the truth will tear them apart for good.

Review

I adore sister books. I am so close to mine that when there are books about sister’s I try to make sure to read them. This one is no exception in showing the complicated relationship that two sisters can have during their teen years.

April and Jenn remind me of my relationship with my sister during my high school years. I was busy working and going to school and with three years between us we hadn’t walked the same hallways in years. We weren’t close but we did have great parents who supported and loved us. I can’t say the same for April and Jenn’s parents. They are the reason why this book is four stars instead of five. It was a struggle for me when it came to their parents so you’ve been forewarned.

April avoids her parents at all costs either with soccer or hanging out with neighbor, and best friend, Nate. She comes off as the spoiled younger sibling who never has to deal with the responsibility of keeping their parents under control. Her love of soccer has a scout coming to her upcoming games with the possibility of gaining a scholarship. Now that her sister is going to be busy with community college she decides to plan a day full of fun activities to help reconnect. I really enjoyed April’s character the best out of the two sisters and you really get to see how much her parent’s and older sister pay little attention to her. Jenn sees her as non-caring but April just feels like the petulant child that no one cares to deal with at all. By the end she decides that she will be heard.

Jenn was the rougher character of the two for me. She’s miss perfect grades, keeps her room clean, works at the family antique store, and turned down the biggest opportunity of her life. Or so everyone thinks. Deep down Jenn feels that the only thing keeping her family together is her. She needs control and when things start to catch up with her, the secret she’s been keeping for months, she realizes that sometimes things need to go out of control for them to get back on track. When she agrees to her sisters plans on a whim to get out of working at the store she doesn’t know that her whole world is about to change. She definitely had the most distinct character arc out of the two sisters and I really liked how much their relationship grew by the end.

My mom always told my sister and I that friends will come and go but sisters will always be there. When we were teenagers we never felt that way but as we grew older, and became the adults we are now, we couldn’t imagine living without each other.
