The Year My Sister Got Lucky by Aimee Friedman

Front Flap: Katie and Michaela Wilder are sisters, best friebds, and born-and-bred New York City girls. Katie loves the feel of concrete beneath her feet, the roar of the subway, and the glamour of her world-class dance school. And her older sister Michaela feels the same way. But the Wilder sisters' luck is about to change. The girls are uprooted from the city the summer before Katie's freshman year and planted in rural Fir Lake, a town full of overalls, cows, and mountains. In other words, Katie's worst nightmare. While Katie suffers through shopping withdrawal, Michaela transforms into a smalltown social firefly, flirting with the hot quarterback and soaking up nature with her new hick-town friends. As in, people who think camping is fun. Does Katie even know her sister anymore? And after Michael hides a jaw-dropping secret from her, does Kait even want to? I thought this was a great book that's different from other glamorous ones about two sisters. I so wish I had a sister! I have two younger brothers which is good and all but I'm just saying. Katie, or Katya, which I like Katya, is always so jealous of Michaela, of course that's always the case when the other feels to pressured or thinks the other one is lucky. But I like how Katie struggles but then in the end she learns about her sister and what she really does want and what she really wants to and that her friends back home aren't so miss worthy anymore! But she learns things she never thought about before. I find that stories with smaller towns do that, since in the city it makes you so engulfed into that lifestyle and it's all you care about but in like a country setting they think they'll hate it but they get used to it. You kinda have to whether you like it or not but it was a really great story of two sisters and their lives becoming separate but knowing theyll be there for each other always no matter what they go through. Love that!
