From Alison Cherry, author of Red, a novel PW declares “sparkles with wit,” comes a terrific new book about two sisters and one big question: how do you know who’s for real?
No parents. No limits. No clue what they’re in for.
Shy, cautious Claire has always been in her confident older sister’s shadow. While Miranda’s life is jam-packed with exciting people and whirlwind adventures, Claire gets her thrills vicariously by watching people live large on reality television.
When Miranda discovers her boyfriend, Samir, cheating on her just after her college graduation, it’s Claire who comes up with the perfect plan. They’ll outshine Miranda’s fame-obsessed ex while having an amazing summer by competing on Around the World, a race around the globe for a million bucks. Revenge + sisterly bonding = awesome. But the show has a twist, and Claire is stunned to find herself in the middle of a reality-show romance that may be just for the cameras. This summer could end up being the highlight of her life . . . or an epic fail forever captured on film. In a world where drama is currency and manipulation is standard, how can you tell what’s for real?
Why I’m Waiting
This book sounds so fun. I love the fact it’s based around two sisters who have a close bond. One is shy, one is outgoing, it’s the perfect mix! The idea of the Around the World race sounds so fun and reminds me of The Amazing Race, which I used to love watching. I can’t wait to see what sort of adventures the girls go on and see how they grow and expand their horizons. I have a feeling that they’ll learn a lot from each other!
What are you waiting for this week?
