    The relationship of two sisters is described by Jessica Martinez

    The relationship of two sisters is described by Jessica Martinez in The Space Between Us.  Responsible and goal-driven Amelia works tirelessly to achieve her dream of attending Columbia University in New York.  Charly, her younger sister, is wild and crazy, always getting in and out of trouble.  Amelia looks out for Charly and tries to prevent her from pulling any stunts that are too out of control.  One day Charly does not come home from a night of partying.  Amelia fears the worst and is extremely angry when Charly finally returns home.  For the next several weeks, Charly is a recluse and seems ill.  Finally, Charly admits to Amelia that she is pregnant and Amelia’s world changes.  They are sent to live in Canada until the due date and Amelia is furious. 
    The Space Between Us could be enjoyed by most teen girls.  Charly and Amelia are relatable teen girls who are frustrated by problems that most girls have.  More serious issues enter the book as it progresses: pregnancy and date rape.
    Martinez did a great job writing a book about sensitive issues.  The characters all seemed realistic and were memorable.  I give this novel four out of five stars.

    Great Understanding of Sibling Relationships

    I first read the blurb of this book, and said it completely described my sister and I. I bought this book and loved how inspirational it was. The fights sisters have and the words of hate expressed, because at the end of the day those words are meaningless. The love that is showed through the battles of having to change for someone who has been there for you your whole life. All while working on a relationship with someone who may be just as broken as you are. It is a fabulous book I would highly recommend!
