From bestselling author Aimee Friedman, an acclaimed story about sisters, lies, and laughter -- now in paperback!

Katie and Michaela Wilder are New York City girls...and best friends. But everything changes when they move upstate to rural Fir Lake. Katie is horrified by their new surroundings: the too-friendly neighbors, the lack of a subway, the fact they live near actual cows. She's shocked when Michaela adapts to the country life effortlessly, dating a cute football player and attending homecoming with something resembling enjoyment.

And most shocking of all? She's started keeping secrets from Katie.

Although not the star pupil at Anna Pavlova Academy like her older sister Michaela, high-school freshman Katya “Katie” Wilder is accustomed to the ballet school’s cutthroat atmosphere, as well as to the constant lights, noise and people of New York City, where she has lived her entire life.

Common Sense Media

The plot is standard-issue (a teen asserts her independence, a fish out of water realizes her new home isn't so bad after all, a little sister discovers the big sister she worships isn't perfect), but the sisterly bond is appealing.
