Summer's Secrets in Then I Met My Sister

Then I Met My Sister by Christine Hurley Deriso

Synopsis: Shannon has been the backdrop of my life since the moment I was born.

Summer Stetson lives inside a shrine to her dead sister. Eclipsed by Shannon's greatness, Summer feels like she's a constant disappointment to her controlling, Type A momzilla and her all-too-quiet dad. Her best friend Gibson believes Summer's C average has more to do with rebelliousness than smarts, but she knows she can never measure up; academically or otherwise.

On her birthday, Summer receives a secret gift from her aunt; Shannon's diary. Suddenly, the one-dimensional vision of her sister becomes all too solid. Is this love-struck, mom-bashing badass the same Shannon everyone raves about? Determined to understand her troubled sister, Summer dives headfirst down a dark rabbit hole and unearths painful family secrets. Each revelation brings Summer closer to the mysterious and liberating truth about her family,and herself.


The Ten Secrets Summer has:

1. She's scared to death that she's a lot like her mom.

2. She wishes guys liked her more.

3. She really does care about grades but fears she's not smart enough to excel.

4. She wishes she knew her dad better.

5. She kinda hates her dead sister.

6. She hides depression and anxiety by being glib.

7. She doesn't feel beautiful and hates that she cares.

8. She's scared of college.

9. She wishes she could relate to girls better.

10. She's afraid of death but more afraid of life.
