I suppose I will start on that sunny Saturday in September when I first realized how acutely I wanted to murder my sister…
For two sisters as different as Plum and Ginny, getting on each other’s nerves is par for the course. But when the family’s finances hit a snag, sending chaos through the house in a way only characters from a Jane Austen novel could understand, the two drift apart in a way they never have before.
Plum, a self-described social outcast, strikes up an unexpected friendship with the class jock, while Ginny’s usual high-strung mentality escalates to pure hysterics. Plum finally has something in her life that doesn’t revolve around her big sister, but what if coming into her own means she’s not there for her Ginny when she needs her most?
Heartfelt, humorous, and perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Mylnowski, this contemporary take on Sense and Sensibility follows two sisters—complete opposites—who struggle to find themselves outside of the shadow of their late father.
