Aimee Friedman - Year My Sister Got Lucky, The

Year My Sister Got Lucky, The

Author: Aimee Friedman

  • AGES 12 - 14 
  • Genre Young Adult
When Katie and Michaela Wilder are uprooted from their New York City apartment and planted in rural Fir Lake, it all just seems so...weird. Katie especially is horrified by their new surroundings: the too-friendly neighbors, the local uniform of sandals paired with socks, the very idea of milking a cow. She's shocked when big sister Michaela slips into her country persona effortlessly, dating a football player and attending homecoming with something close to enjoyment. As far as Katie's concerned, they are city girls, and if the city won't come to them, Katie will bring the city to Fir Lake farm country.

A cross between The Simple Life and In Her Shoes, The Year My Sister Got Lucky is funny, heartrending, and wicked.

"Through her complex characters and their responses to the world, Friedman has transformed the traditional YA novel about moving and growing up and away into an authentic, real-life exploration of adaptation and acceptance. A delightful, funny, insightful journey." — Booklist
