Gr 7-9-Stepsisters Diana and Stephanie live with their recently married parents most of the time but go to their "other" families for weekend visits. Diana, who is having adjustment problems, is compared to Stephanie (the good girl) and resents it. But is Stephanie really the good girl, and why does she dislike her stepbrother Matt so vehemently? When he is involved in a serious automobile accident on Christmas and Stephanie's grandmother is also hospitalized, the girls are finally honest with each other and test their relationship. This bibliotheraputic dream come true will be appreciated by many readers, who will ask for other books in the series because they will want to know more about these believable characters.-Kathy Lyday, South Caldwell High School, NCα(c) Copyright 2013.

Stepsisters Diana and Stephanie have made progress, but when Stephanie’s grandmother is hospitalized and Diana is suspended for fighting a bully, the holes in their patchy relationship threaten to grow wider. Oddly enough, it is the beaching of a pilot whale on the North Carolina coast that brings the two girls together and gives them a fresh awareness of their own weaknesses and empathy with each other. A bit heavier than others in the Sisters in All Seasons series, with its awareness of suffering and death on several levels, this title adds a satisfyingly thoughtful element. Grades 5-8. --Melissa Moore

This book is so good. I love Stephanie, because I react the same way when I hear someone has fallen ill. This realistic fiction book will have you turning pages. There was never a part in the book that annoyed me. I loved it through and through. The book was very enjoyable, and I don't think this book could be any better.
There was a happy ending, but it still left you wondering about some things. I'd love to read other books by this author, and I've already finished this series. I like how every chapter alternated between Diana and Stephanie's point of view. The flow was good, not too fast or not too slow. I highly recommend this series, because its a really great story. Anybody between the ages of 10-14 should try this book series.
I was surprised at the number of step-families in this story. The main characters are stepsisters and there are others mentioned too. This was one of the first times I had read a book like this.
I enjoyed having the perspective of both Stephanie and Diana by alternating chapters. It was nice to have different perspectives, because I learned more about all the characters. Diana needs a lot of guidance which was more noticeable by the different perspectives. I was glad she was able to succeed with her feelings and viewpoints.
I would recommend this book to all young teen girls. It is worth the read.
