The Opposite of Me by Sarah Pekkanen

The Opposite of Me: A Novel
Sarah Pekkanen
Washington Square Press

I absolutely loved everything about this book! It captured me, lured me in, brought me through nearly every emotion. I identified with the characters, especially Lindsay, as she struggled to claim her own identity, who she was and who she wanted to be. The book is a page turner and is very enjoyable to read. This book was not predictable. Things I thought would happen she turned another way. I loved it! The book is about two sisters who presume they know each other due to who or what they thought they were within their family. It turns out neither of them know anything! They are both jealous of each other, but soon find out the grass is not always greener on the otherside. They journey through sisterhood, life, love and loss (not always what it may seem) to find out that they are not what they think they are and that everyone needs to be themselves for who they are and what they want to be instead of what others want or how others view them.

Sarah, you did a wonderful job! I highly suggest anyone read this book, especially if you have a sibling, a friend, a relative.... anyone who you may have compared yourself too through the years. Isn't it wonderful that we are all unique and we are all special in our own ways, simply because that makes us who we are. This book was fresh, encouraging, funny, sentimental and easy to relate to! I read it quickly because I didn't want to put it down. I would suggest if you have not read it that you do so. Its a great read. You won't be disappointed as it leaves you wanting more from Sarah.....
