This was one of the best books Ive read in a while. It is al labout two sisters who used to be so close. Now that they are moving they start to grow apart . Soon the younger sister Katie does not even know who her older sister Mikalya is any more. It is all about sisters,friendships, live,love and dance. It was a great book

I didn't realize when I selected this Free Friday selection it was a YA story. I am definately not a YA. That said, it was very good and held my attention. I would recommend for Jr and Sr high girls.

Sisters. Best friends. Confidantes. Future ballerina Michaela and little sister-slash-insomniac Katya "Katie" Wilder are like Eloise- city girls no matter what. Until they get uprooted from chic, sleek, NYC and move upstate to a tiny little town upstate. Katie is totally sure she'll hate every second of it, while Michaela sees it as a new start, a chance to begin again. Michaela makes new friends, and though she tries to hold on to her friendship with Katie at first, slowly Katie stops being a mjor part of her life. Throughout the book, Katie begins to accept life in her new town, and makes new friends, finds new passions, and learns who she really is. Michaela adjusts instantly and soon has new friends, a boyfriend, and a new life. By the end of the book, Michaela and Katie realize that no matter what, they are sisters and that is something that will never change. Each girl carves her own path, even if it was a little different from the one they dreamed of in New York City. I first grabbed this book as I was leaving the bookstore, and I wasn't sure if I would like it. From the inside flap, it sounded like a silly little book and I put off reading it. Then I actually read it. Within the first page, I was hooked. Being a ballerina, I could really relate, and I loved, loved, loved how Aimee incorporated dance. In four hours, I finished it. I literally could not put this book down. It's told from Katie's point of view, but I fell in love with Michaela's character, and liked that despite how perfect she was at the beginning, she grew a backbone and developed her own interests and new talents. Both girls change for the better by the end of the book and really find out what sisterhood, friendship, and trust means deep down inside. If you are looking for an amazing book, get this one. I promise that it is totally worth your money. FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS!!!!

I loved this book. Instead of giving you an overkill of a teen novel, this has a completely different plot! I enjoyed it very much and reccomend it to many people that like a love story with many other elements such as friendship and trust too!

Beautiful novel, by Aimee Friedman (after reading Breaking Up, I read this, and was pleasently surprised) that I don't think I'll ever forget: Characters: Micheala and Katie were both great characters, but I couldn't really relate to Katie, I felt kind of trapped with her, if you know what I mean. I didn't feel that the pain she felt was because of Micheala's behavior towards her, I think that rather, she was a tinsy bit jealous of her sister. How she watched Micheala say goodbye to her boyfriend and kiss him from the window, it showed that her thoughts were a little mixed up- I mean- all the time she was trying very hard Not to fit in, which I didn't really understand. While her sister, only tried her best- and succeeded, instead of mourning about the move. I'm not trying to be mean or anything, I'm just saying that I didn't understand Katie that much,if she wanted to fit in she had to work for it, but nonetheless she was a very good character in this book. The closeness between the two sisters was shown very well, too. Plot: Great plot, I loved every bit of it and it moved forward with every page turn, which wasn't surprising- knowing that Aimee Friedman is the author :)) It was well developed and thought out, especially the beginning in the NY, but I was dissapointed she didn't keep it up till the end, after the move. I wanted to know more about the new place and I would have liked to have seen more description about it too. Otherwise, it was a very good plot! Writing: Again, a little more descriprion would've been nice. I would have loved to see more adjectives here, and a little more description of how the main characters looked would have been appriciated too :)Though, I know, Aimee's style is kind of like that, I don't want it to become a poor vocabulary. As I said before, in the plot, it would have been better if she had kept the writing from the beginning, at the rest of the book, too :) I would recommend to Aimee Friedman fans :)

'The Year My Sister Got Lucky' is a cute and charming book. I read it in about a day because once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. Aimee Freidman is a great author - this book is well-written and almost anyone can relate to the events that go on. I liked the way the characters were described in the book and it felt like I got to know them. I recommend it to all girls, especially sisters.

I am both a sister and a dancer, and I must say, when I read this, the first quote opened my eyes. The author's words are so true to any sister - I was amazed at how much of myself I discovered when reading this book. Just finished the last 170 pages tonight. Good story line, not very predictable. Interesting names of the characters and places. If you've ever been to NYC or dream of seeing the Big Apple someday, I advise you to pick this one up, too. Hope you enjoy reading The Year My Sister Got Lucky!

This book was OMG amazing. After I finished this afternoon I couldn't stop thinking about it and was almost about to cry the story couldn't continue. It's one of those books that you want to get to the end to accomplish reading the book but then again you want the story to be infinite. It was amazing. I recommend this book for people who like books about realistic fiction and modern girls and relationships and their lives.
