Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Oh my goodness gracious, Estelle!
My heart SWELLS with all of these feelings that I’m having right now about how much I want to read this book. I can’t even tell you how much I want to read it. I have to find it.

(YAY, I just checked and my library has a copy! YAY!)

VeganYANerds - Wonderful review, Estelle! I’m so glad this book was more of what you were expecting in a story about the Shore. I’ve had it on my to-read list for ages and I don’t even know why. The fact that it’s about sisters really appeals to me!

Alexa Y. - Oh wow! This book sounds really great. I love that it’s about sisters, and I love how it features the both of them dealing with their own separate issues. It’s an intriguing book, and I definitely think I need to read this.

I’m glad it served as a nice reminder to you of the Jersey Shore. I’ve only been twice, but it made me sad too to see what happened after Sandy hit 🙁

elena - aww i’m so glad it brought out memories for you and proved to be a refreshing read. i love that they have similar issues (like with skate and her bf, rosie and wondering about her love live) yet remain their own person. great review!

Hollie @ Music, Books and Tea - I hadn’t heard of this one before I saw your review, but you’ve made me want to hunt out a copy of it! I love that this doesn’t seem to be a typical sibling book where they spend all their time together too, and that it seems to deal with some tough issues too. Great review! 🙂
