Sass and Serendipity by Jennifer Ziegler

A tribute to Sense and Sensibility, Sass and Serendipity is a tale of two sisters. Gabby, the older responsible sister, always sees the glass as half empty. She only has one friend, and spends all of her time either studying or at her job trying to support their single mom. Daphne is a junior varsity cheerleader with high hopes and tons of friends. She is always super positive and loves to kick back and enjoy life. The two sisters never see eye to eye on anything. Gabby always wishes Daphne would get her head out of the clouds and come back to reality. Daphne wants Gabby to get off her back and live a little. When some extreme changes enter these two sisters lives, their lives get turned upside down and the girls start questioning their perspectives.
I loved this book. I wasnt sure how difficult it might be, considering one out of the three words in the title I hadnt seen before, but it was an easy read. (Serendipity means good luck, or events playing out in a good way.) Some realistic fiction books dont seem very realistic. This book applies to any two sisters, and is as real as can be. An engaging mix of realistic fiction and romance, I would recommend this book to any girl over 12, especially ones with sisters.
