rgz Street Team: Sarah reviews Sloane Sisters by Anna Carey

The rgz Street Team is a group of teens who bring YA reviews to our blog, led by Postergirl Miss Erin. Find out more.

Today, Sarah reviews Sloane Sisters by Anna Carey:


"When Cate and Andie Sloane's Upper East Side dad met Stella and Lola's British model of a mom, none of the daughters thought that this relationship would last. Suddenly their parents announce that they are getting married. Cate, Andie, Stella, and Lola are going to have to be one big happy family. Cate has found a rival in her future stepsister, Stella. Cate likes being #1 at Ashton Prep. Can she handle that Stella might be IT, with her British accent and closet swag? Andie wants to be a model, but at 4'11", her chances are slim. Will having a model as a step mom help? Lola only has one plan for living in Manhattan. To be her longtime friend Kyle Lewis' girl friend... but will his eyes for Andie make it impossible?

"Sloane Sisters was very cute. I have 3 sisters, so I know what it is like in the craziness aspect. This is definitely a Gossip Girl-like novel for a younger set and it was really well done. It was really humorous, fun, and drama-filled. The writing was good. The characters were pretty well developed. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I also love the cover. It is adorable.
