    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...

    I was sitting in the parking lot with kids #3 & #4 waiting on #2 when my 9 year old daughter asked ?What?s that book about?? After a brief description she said, ?Mom- that book was MADE.FOR.ME. It?s sort of like Parent Trap with gay Dad?s but with emails and letters? Wi...

    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...

    Absolutely loved this! A girl gets a random email from another girl. Turns out their fathers are dating and the girls are being sent to camp, to get to know each other while the dads are travelling around China. The girls are unimpressed with their fathers? plotting and are agreed th...

    Avery Bloom and Bett Devlin are not having it! So what that their dads met one another at a convention in Chicago and now they are in love, that doesn't mean the two 12-year-old girls have to be immediate sisters or anything. And their dads are sending Avery and Bett to the same summer...

    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. ...

    ?Avery, you don?t know me but I?m writing to you anyway. This is awkward but I?m just going to say it. Your dad + my dad ARE NOW A COUPLE. That isn?t my business, only it IS my business because my dad wants to send me to a summer camp that you?re going to.? So begins o...

    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 ...

    2.5/5 I feel like I was stabbed in the back with this. First of all, what the hell was that about the wedding? Whose wedding was it? I was reading and then suddenly some very confusing lines came up. Someone said this reminded them of the Parent Trap, which I don't remember anyth...

    I went into this book without high expectations, and I was definitely blown away. This is such a light hearted happy book about friendship and family- and what those words can mean. I laughed a bunch. I enjoyed reading about how the main characters Avery and Bett grow and change over t...

    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. ...

    ?I really like reading stories with an unreliable narrator, because the person telling you what happened can't be trusted with the facts and you have to figure it out. Maybe when it's your own story, you're always going to be an unreliable narrator" -Avery (Night Owl)? To Night ...
