. . . Then I Met My Sister
By Christine Hurley Deriso
A Young-Adult Novel Coming in April 2011 from Flux
Summer Stetson lives inside a shrine to her dead sister. Eclipsed by Shannon’s greatness, Summer feels like she’s a constant disappointment to her controlling, type-A momzilla and her all-tolo-quiet dad. Her best friend, Gibson, believes Summer’s C average has more to do with rebelliousness than smart,s but she thinks she can never measure up, academically or otherwise.
On her birthday, Summer receives a secret gift from her aunt—the diary Shannon kept just before she died. Suddely, Summer’s wondering: Is this love-struck, mom-bashing rebel the same Shannon everyone raves about? Determined to understand her troubled sister, Summer unearths painful family secrets. With each revelation, she comes closer to the mysterious and liberating truth about her family—and herself.
