What's it like to have a famous sister-and always live in her shadow? Just being 14 is bad enough, what with starting a new school, being practically the only person without a cell phone, and not being recognized as the great artist you really are. But imagine having an older sister who constantly steals the spotlight, who's a likely candidate for a figure skating gold medal in the Winter Olympics, and who somehow finds the time to be after the same guy you are. Be prepared to laugh, be prepared to cry, as feisty Karen Fenstermacher comes to grips with sibling rivalry and first romance in Skater Sister. The universal theme of this novel is the desire to be appreciated for who we are, even when we live in someone else's shadow. A heartwarming fiction for tweens, older girls, their families, and anyone who loves figure skating.
