the girls develop a friendship that turns closer to sisterhood There are fun adventures and twists along the way I m quickly learning that I much prefer Middle Grade stories to Young Adult YA often annoys the heck out of me I saw many reviews comparing this one to a modern day Parent Trap I can see some similarities, but mostly because of the Summer Camp aspect which I loved This book was so fun It is written in emails sent between the two characters, which was really fun This book was so enjoyable and different.The two girls Better and Avery are as different as can be but they form a beautiful friendship throughout this book.I absolutely loved it and I think everyone should read it This is a middle grade novel that I highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun book.
