Peace, Love & Baby Ducks by Lauren Myracle
Peace, Love & Baby Ducks is a really sweet story the follows the lives of one family, especially the two sisters. While Carly and Anna may be from the same privileged family they are nothing alike and the eldest, Carly has to deal with the fact that her little sister is growing up. While Carly likes to be different and does not care what anyone has to say, Anna is a 'Blonde Barbie' and conforms to the other girls at their school. This novel follows the good and bad parts about two sisters in the same high school together and the issues they have to deal with. It really makes you wish that you had a sister of your own, even if it isn't always a good thing.
I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys reading realistic fiction, as long as they were older than thirteen. The characters were easy to relate to and some of the underlying themes that were spread through the novel, like racism, help make it more realistic. This book addresses many things that really do occur, which is great as it makes it really believable as you can identify with the problems that the characters have to deal with. It was aonother AMAZING book by Lauren Myracle, and I hope many people read and enjoy it!
