Lindsay and Kerrie Ann are sisters who have known hardship from an early age, when their mother was sent to prison and they were separated and sent into foster care. Thirty years later, Lindsay is still trying to reconnect with her little sister. When they are finally reunited, neither sister's expectations are met. Kerrie Ann feels intimidated by the classy, more educated Lindsay, while Lindsay is dismayed by Kerrie Ann's streetwise ways. They immediately clash as Lindsay becomes threatened by Kerrie Ann. Simultaneously, Kerrie Ann struggles with the prospect of losing both her home and her boyfriend and is thrown into even further turmoil when her daughter's foster parents put in a petition to adopt her. As the two sisters engage in the fiercest battles of their lives, they are drawn together despite their differences.

About the author (2011)

Eileen Goudge was born July 4, 1950 and grew up in the San Francisco bay area. She began writing at the age of eight. At eighteen, she dropped out of college, ran off with a man dodging the draft, and got married. Two years later, she was divorced, with a baby, and had to go on welfare. She decided to become a professional writer, started writing non-stop and managed to sell a few articles. In the early eighties, she was chosen to help launch a new line of teen romances, which became the successful Sweet Valley High series. She now had enough money to end another bad marriage and move to New York City with her two children. She continued to write the Sweet Valley High titles while working on a novel. Her first novel, Garden of Lies, was sold in 1986 to Viking for nearly one million dollars. Since then, she has written over thirty novels for young adults and over ten works of women's fiction. Her other works include Thorns of Truth, The Diary, and Once in a Blue Moon.
