How strong is a bond between sisters, even if they are only half sisters? I think through this book you find that sharing a mom is a bond that can overcome almost anything. Tara and Sky are half sisters who have lived through quite a few disappointments in each of their lives, but they don't realize what emotions each sister has had to live through until a true tragedy hits and they are on a road trip of sorts.
Being a sister this book hit real close to my heart. Although my sister and I have not faced the level of personal struggle that these characters have, I saw in them the difference that sisters can be affected by the same situation.
Ann Pearlman does a magnificent job of switching between the two characters to show the full story, at one point the characters describe the same fight and how intriguing to see how each one "heard" the fight. The descriptions of feelings, people and places were just spot on, it made me feel like I could really see it, but I wasn't overwhelmed by it at all.
A sweet companion novel to The Christmas Cookie Club. It was great to see a larger story come out of a book that I loved so much that I plan on rereading during the holidays again this year.
