2014 book 81

Dana Reinhardt's We Are The Goldens
Reinhardt's latest YA book (after The Summer I Learned to Fly and A Brief Chapter in my Impossible Life) centers on the younger of a pair of sisters, Nell, looking forward to starting high school and living the dream. But things aren't as dreamy as she'd imagined, especially once she finds out a secret of her sister's, putting her in a moral quandary.  Really solid writing, and I appreciate that Reinhardt is centering her story on an ethical dilemma and on the relationship between sisters. Nell's experience with romance is also more realistic than that of a lot of YA books, which was great. B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in May.
