Carly changed over the summer. She is stronger and at peace with who she is. But her younger sister Anna changed too. Anna grew boobs. Anna and Carly are totally different. Carly has to be the strong sister, and be there when Anna needs her. Which she does a lot. But sometimes things happen that pin sisters against each other and you'll have to find a way to push past all the bad and start new.

I really liked read this book. A lot of only children probably wouldn't have been able to understand why Anna and Carly would fight the way they did and the reasons behind them. But I have a younger sister and I see why Carly gets angry at Anna. Carly was a very relatable main character. I could even see myself as her. Of course my sister wouldn't betray me. Still it's easy to remember times that I might have said things to my sister that made her feel like she was worth less then me. Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks was a great example of how High School can try to break through something as strong as sisterhood. The whole concept of the story was fantastic and I was left thinking about how I affect my sister. Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks was way better then I expected it to be and I would recommend it to anyone in the mood for a feel good story or has a sister.
