Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks by Lauren Myracle

All day long, I get comments on: (a) how awful my hair looks, and, (b) how hot my sister is. I don't get it. Do people not consider the possibility that maybe they're being the tiniest bit insensitive, saying things like, "Omigod, you must have wanted to kill your stylist," and then informing me how incredibly gorgeous Anna is? (45)

Fans of Lauren Myracle will want to read her newest book, Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks. After being gone for the entire summer, sophomore Carly returns to find her freshman sister Anna has grown, and the boys at their ultra-exclusive Catholic high school are noticing. While Carly tries not to be jealous, it's hard to ignore everyone's comments. Tension rises when Carly tries to distinguish herself from the rest of the rich Barbies, which she feels Anna is trying to become. Add in a hot exchange student who every girl desires and an unsupervised party, and the girls come to realize what is really important.
