Description-

  • Lily has lived with her mom since her parents got divorced several years ago, and her dad has recently remarried to a woman with a daughter her age, named Hannah. But now, Lily's mom has gotten a once-in-a-lifetime work opportunity in Africa and she'll be gone for a year, and so Lily is moving in with her dad—and new stepmom and new stepsister. It'll be as easy as apple pie, right?

    Wrong. Lily promises her dad that she'll try to get along with everyone, but she is not happy about it. Her stepmom is nice, but she's no replacement for her real mom, and Lily feels like she barely gets any one-on-one time with her dad anymore.

    The real problem, though, is Hannah. What starts out as tension between the new stepsisters becomes a full-on war, both at home and at school. Harmless pranks turn into total sabotage. Can Lily survive the year—or is her family fractured beyond repair?

    Lily has big plans for this year's fall festival: She and her mother are going to bake the wining pie together.But then Mom announces she's moving to Morocco for a year on a fellowship, and Lily is going to live with her father and his new family. Lily's not looking forward to it, but at least she doesn't have to change schools and she can still enter the pie contest. Stepmom Kimberly is welcoming, but stepsister Hannah? Not so much. She's cold and standoffish and a bit full of herself. To add to the tension, the girls have to share a room. Their living styles aren't exactly compatible: Lily is a tidy, organized planner, and Hannah...is not. But Lily has promised Mom she'll do her best to get along with Hannah. Unfortunately, Hannah has other plans, and soon the girls are pranking each other back and forth, often with real consequences. Can the girls end this prank war before someone really gets hurt? Readers will note some bumpy plot points, such as Lily's surprise when Hannah retaliates and that Dad and Kimberly are so wrapped up in their own problems, they don't notice their daughters aren't as sisterly as they'd hoped they'd be. Seventh-grader Lily narrates in an exposition-heavy first-person perspective loaded with exclamations and interrobangs. Lily is multiracial and presents white: white on her father's side and with a Moroccan great-grandfather on her mother's. Lily's possible crush is biracial, the son of a Vietnamese-American father and Swedish mother. Several other characters of color are suggested by naming convention.Uneven and unsubtle--but sweet. (Fiction. 8-13)
