    DNF'd at 5% but the information that these kids are sharing with each other was seriously pissing me off. Being totally unsafe and giving out personal information about themselves, their families, where they live, how old they are, the summer camp that they'll be at over the summer and...

    Audibook Review 4.5 stars rounded up Total Parent Trap vibes, but obviously not the exact storyline. If you are a fan of the original movie you will start singing ?Let?s Get Together? yeah, yeah, yeah ? to yourself quite often, or at least I did. ? Bett and Avery?...

    This epistolary novel from two authors I've never read before tells the story of two young girls, Avery and Bett, who reluctantly become friends and are then put into a situation where they have to fight for that friendship. From reading the blurb, I expected the whole book to take...

    There are so many wonderful things to say about this modern day, epistolary novel. Where to start? the characters sucked me in--the feisty, anti-rule Bett and Avery, the overly aware intellectual who reads so much that the world is a scary place, a place which one should avoid. Both ar...

    This was wonderful. I loved The Parent Trap (both the Hayley Mills and the Lindsay Lohan versions) growing up so I was really excited to see a fresh take up the story. I loved the friendship between Bett and Avery and how, like with real friendships, there were bumps in the road. I lik...

    People always talk about YA books, but Middle School books are having their own Renaissance. This epistolary novel is a prime example. The premise is simple: a young girl reaches out to a stranger to let her know that their dads are dating. Through their correspondence (along with addi...

    Loved this middle grade novel written in emails and letters. Funny and well developed characters, gay dads and happy kids. Each daughter is smart in her own way, and the 2 learn and grow together. I received an ARC from Barbara?s Bookstore, all thoughts are my own. ...

    THE cutest book ever! The characters are charming but not overly simple. The entire story had me on the edge of my seat with every page turned. This book will be great for reluctant readers since the format of letters back and forth are pretty short most times. When the letters get...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars I desperately wanted to read this book for several reasons: 1. I am a HUGE fan of Wolitzer's work. I have read, and adored, many of her adult and YA books. 2. There is just something about camp books that delights me. 3. I love epistolary novels. 4. There ...

    An epistolary retelling of The Parent Trap with modern flair. Adventurous Bett Devlin and overcautious Avery Bloom have no interest in being friends, but their dads have fallen in love and are sending them to the same summer camp to get to know one another. Bett and Avery reluctantly u...

    This was such a cute and refreshing read! It's middlegrade but that does not mean that there's nothing to take from it for someone older than that! Highly recommend for people of all ages who are open to learn something new through the eyes of Bett, Avery and everyone around them. ...
