Peace, Love, & Baby Ducks

I am very tempted to read A Clash of Kings after finishing A Game of Thrones, but I guess I should read this. Maybe I will read them at the same time.

So, Ashley has already read this book. It was her August selection. Here is a link to her first post: Ashley's August Pick

Title: Peace, Love, & Baby Ducks
Author: Lauren Myracle
Year Published: 2009
Synopsis: Growing up in a world of wealth and pastel-tinted entitlement, fifteen-year-old Carly has always relied on the constancy—and authenticity—of her younger sister, Anna. But when fourteen-year-old Anna turns plastic-perfect-pretty over the course of a single summer, everything starts to change. And there are boys involved , complicating things as boys always do. With warmth, insight, and an unparalleled gift for finding humor even in stormy situations, beloved author Lauren Myracle dives into the tumultuous waters of sisterhood and shows that 
even very different sisters can learn to help each other stay afloat.

 Why?: I don't think this would be a book I would pick out for myself at the bookstore. Ashley picked this and enjoyed it. It will be nice reading outside of my comfort zone. 

Expectations: I expect this to be a story focusing on a relationship between two sisters. I expect self image and popularity will come into play. I have not read anything about this book at all.

Judging a book by its cover: The cover is cutesy and feminine. The peace sign is made up of flowers. From Ashley's posts it seems like each of these aspects of the title will be an act of the 
novel. I'm interested in what baby ducks will have to do with anything.

Well, Here it goes!
