Amy and Laura based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Marilyn Sachs gives us a portrait of sisterly love in this conclusion of the 'Amy' books. Amy's never been fond of Laura and vice versa. Of course they should be fond of each other, they're sisters, but Laura's never cared for Amy the way sisters should, except for fighting Amy's battles for her. But now things are bad. Mama's home and life isn't the same anymore. Laura becomes a monitor, and Amy dares her one day to report her, see what happens to you then Laura. Laura goes for it and unfortunately Amy doesn't realize that Laura really went for it, reported her, and at the end of the day Amy becomes a sniveling mess of tears because her sister really did go and report her. I'm not to give the ending away but Amy and Laura become friends after a ugly fight at the end of Open House Week. The fight causes Mama to know she's home, and Amy and Laura to know more about themselves and each other ~ in a story of sisterly love.
