Sisters April and Jenn haven’t been close in years. Jenn’s too busy with school, the family antique shop, and her boyfriend, and April would rather play soccer and hang out with the boy next door.

But when April notices her older sister is sad about staying home for college, she decides to do something about it. The girls set off to revive a pact they made as kids: spend an epic day exploring the greatest hits of their childhood and all that Los Angeles has to offer.

Then April learns that Jenn has been keeping a secret that could rip their family—and their feuding parents—apart. With only one day to set things right, the sisters must decide if their relationship is worth saving, or if the truth will tear them apart for good. (Goodreads)

The first thing that drew me to She’s the Worst by Lauren Spieller was the adorable cover. Not only is it super cute, but it’s also pink, and I absolutely can’t resist the color pink. The storyline for the book sounded super cute, so I was really excited to check it out.

To sum it up, She’s the Worst is the story about two sisters who used to be really close, but have drifted apart over the years. When April thinks her sister, Jenn, is depressed about not getting to go away for college, she plans a fun day in an attempt to cheer her up. But Jenn has a pretty massive secret that could be pretty destructive to her family, and the secret is about to come out.

The story is told from alternating viewpoints between the two sisters, and I always like this because we can get both sides of the story, so to speak. The relationship between the two sisters felt very realistic, as I’m sure a lot of sisters have this kind of relationship. The constant bickering and arguing between the two felt real, but it started to get on my nerves as the book went along. BUT, these two were saints compared to their parents, who were definitely the worst part of the book.

(Also, my favorite character is definitely the boy next door!)

I thought the storyline for this book sounded really interesting, and I was definitely curious to check it out. I do enjoy adventure stories, and getting to read about places I have never been. I will probably never made it out to California, but it was fun getting to visit through these girls. The setting was definitely the best part of the book.

Overall; She’s the Worst was a quick read, and I very much enjoyed taking the journey with the girls as the story went along. Though the girls arguing and bickering did get on my nerves, I still enjoyed the storyline. But don't let this stop you from reading the book! I hope you check it out, and enjoy it!
