Franny feels like her life is too ordinary and that she has no special talents. Her sister, Zooey, meanwhile is one of the best ballerinas at her elite ballet school and has just been offered the role of a lifetime playing Juliet in an upcoming production. Franny secretly likes her newspaper editor and desperately wants to write a valuable article for the paper. Things do not work out well for either sister when Zooey breaks her leg and is sidelined from the performance and Franny’s debut article is rejected by her crush. The two are forced to spend more time together than they have in years and they learn that they have many misunderstandings regarding each other. Can they find a way for them to co-exist without one of them feeling less than worthy?
This story sounds simple, but the characters draw the reader in. Even readers who do not have siblings will be able to identify with that person that seems to have everything together while they do not. Everyone has that person and this book really shows that no one has a perfect life and everyone thinks someone else has a better life than they do. There is also a bit of romance and some lighthearted drama in the book that young high schoolers will enjoy. Recommended for readers who enjoy Sarah Dessen novels.
