Perfect for fans of Sarah Mlynowski and Jenny Han, this heartfelt and humorous contemporary take on Sense and Sensibility follows two sisters—complete opposites—who discover the secrets they’ve been keeping make them more alike than they’d realized.  

For siblings as different as Plum and Ginny, getting on each other’s nerves is par for the course. But when the family’s finances hit a snag, sending chaos through the house in a way only characters from a Jane Austen novel could understand, a distance grows between them like never before.

Plum, a self-described social outcast, finally has something in her life that doesn’t revolve around her dramatic older sister. But what if coming into her own means Plum isn’t there for Ginny when she, struggling with a hard secret of her own, needs her most?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Thornburgh’s exploration of the power of social comedies and books by and about young women—works often deemed insignificant—shines. A funny, beguiling story of sisterhood, burgeoning self-awareness, and first love.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A charming riff on Sense and Sensibility, with fully realized characters and a setting—the Blatchley house—so well loved that it feels like a character in its own right…A smart, character-driven contemporary novel with a timeless feel. Highly recommended.

    School Library Journal

  • “The sisters’ relationship—what pulls them apart, what draws them together when their connection is strained—is the story’s beating heart…Wise, funny, [and a} thoroughly contemporary coming-of-age tale.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
