Fifteen-year-old Plum and her older sister Ginny find their relationship tested by family finances, personality differences, and the secrets they are keeping from each other.
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 May #2
*Starred Review* Plum and her older sister, Ginny, live with their mother in the sort of literary household where arguments arise concerning "the best film adaptation of a Jane Austen novel." Their beloved, ramshackle Victorian home needs repair, but private-school tuition is expensive, and their family's precarious financial situation looks increasingly bleak. Smart and hard-working but overwrought, Ginny is enduring the agonies of senior year (Will her chosen university accept her? Will financial aid cover the cost?). Meanwhile, 15-year-old Plum, who has no friends beyond her sister, tries to earn money by tutoring Tate, a sports-minded classmate who hangs out with the Loud Sophomore Boys group. And, as it turns out, he's a great kisser. While Plum and Ginny emerge as sharply defined, complex individuals, the secondary characters are often intriguing as well. Plum's first-person narrative guides readers through a year when her sister seems to drift away, leaving Plum to challenge herself and process new experiences on her own. A crisis leaves them both shaken but, in the end, closer than ever. The author of Who's That Girl (2017), Thornburgh offers a story that's as witty, intelligent, and perceptive as its narrator. A rewarding novel that revolves around change, reflection, and, yes, sisterhood. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
