But when her older sister, Sophie, shows up at the graduation determined to reveal some long buried secrets, Julia's carefully constructed plans come to a halt. Instead of the summer she had painstakingly laid out, Julia follows Sophie back to Vermont, where Sophie is opening a bakery - and struggling with some secrets of her own. What follows is a summer of revelations - some heartwarming, some heartbreaking, and all slowly pointing Julia toward a new understanding of both herself and of the sister she never really knew.
I have a feeling this book is going to be adorable. I have two sisters of my own who I'm very close to, so I love reading books with sisters in them. This one looks like a really great novel about the importance of family, so I'm quite excited. And I love that the characters start a bakery, too. I've always wanted a cupcake shop of my own!
