Style. Sabotage. Sisterhood. When Cate and Andie Sloane's Upper East Side dad met Stella and Lola Childs's British-model mom, nobody thought a transatlantic relationship would last. But then their parents drop the M-bomb--marriage--and it looks like Cate, Andie, Stella, and Lola are going to be one big happy family. Well, big anyway. Meet: Cate Sloane: She dominates the ninth grade at exclusive Ashton Prep. Tantrum-prone and competitive, Cate would rather wear Laura Ashley every day than be second best at anything. Luckily there's not a rival in sight. Yet. Andie Sloane: Twelve-year-old Andie desperately wants to walk the runway. Her face is flawless, and boys flock to her like love-struck sheep. There's just one leetle problem: She's only 4' 11". But with a new supermodel stepmom, she'll be voguing in no time. Right? Stella Childs: With her take-charge attitude and a closet full of supermodel swag, Stella was the It Girl at her London middle school. She's determined to rule Ashton Prep--even if that means dethroning the current queen bee. Can you say British Invasion? Lola Childs: London boys called gawky Lola "Sticks," but she's got a new mission in Manhattan: boyfriend or bust! With the help of her boy-magnet stepsister, Lola sets her sights on supercute Kyle Lewis. Too bad Kyle's only got eyes for . . . Andie.… (més)

This was a really great tween book. It had just enough drama and girl fights to really make the book good. I did have a problem with keeping the girls straight for some reason. About half way through the book I did finally keep Cate and Stella seperated and figure out who they were. But even after finishing the book I am still having a hard time remembering Andie and Lola's characters. I think it is because all of the girls are so much alike. Cate and Stella are the fashion divas and want to be popular. While Andie and Lola are both the outcasts in each side of the family and want to be like their older sister.

Saying that I did think that this book was really good. It starts off with Stella and Lola moving to the US with their mom who is going to marry Cate and Andie's dad. You think they are going to get along at the beginning but then things change and it gets so bad that their parents wedding is called off. Only to have the girls come together for a very emotional and cute ending. This is a great read for any tween or adult. ( )

"Here's a story, of a lovely lady"... Okay, well maybe this isn't really The Brady Bunch. Although a man, Winston Sloane, does meet a woman, Emma Childs, and they do fall in love. Each has two daughters of their own, and in this over-privileged world, thus begins the war to become the Alpha girl.

Meet Cate Sloane, the alpha at home and at school. Cute clothes, cute hair, basically a cute style, there is no reason that she wouldn't be the president of Ashton Prep's "sorority," Chi Beta Phi. Being the alpha is all Cate knows and is the only thing she will accept. So Cate understands that she is going to have to stand her ground once the new girls arrive.

Next is Cate's sister, Andie Sloane. Before, both girls were inseparable, always doing everything together. However, once their mother passed away, Cate began to drift away, leaving Andie by herself. Sure, Andie tries to fit in with her sister and her clique, but this just led to Andie being dubbed "copy-Cate." Her goal in life is to show up her sister and become a top model. It's just fate that her father found Emma, one of the hottest models around.

Stella Childs is like the Cate of her family - stylish, popular, and extremely annoyed with younger sister. Stella just is not able to fathom why her mother would make them all move to New York, forcing her to leave her friends and school behind. Just learning upon arrival that she will be living with Winston's daughter, Stella is already set for battle, and she won't let anyone push her around.

Lola Childs is nothing like her sister. Tall and awkward with bad hair and a viola. Lola definitely does not care; at least she has her cat, Heathy, by her side. All she wants is a sister who won't make fun of her and would at least share some of the same interests.

During the first meeting, Cate and Stella pair off immediately, already impressed by each other's fashion decisions. This leaves Andie with Lola, and Andie definitely does not want to be seen with her. Stella and Cate get off to a great start, but when a slumber party reveals a more alpha side of Stella, Cate just isn't having it.

Just in this first installment, it's already the battle of the alphas, boys, and wardrobes. Winston and Emma have yet to wed. The girls better get it together before the vows are taken... or is that even what they want?

Author Anna Carey takes on another view of the Upper East Side, this time featuring four soon-to-be sisters who do not mind if they trample on one another. Like a mix of THE CLIQUE and GOSSIP GIRL, fans of both will enjoy this new series along with its high maintenance characters.

Get ready for a lot more gossip, a ton of fashion, and a whole bunch of backstabbing. ( )

Sloane Sisters was such a cute book! I’ve been off the bandwagon when it comes to novels the likes of Gossip Girl, The Clique and books that are known for their catty drama! But I’ve recently started reading the new GG series and I must admit I am a fan. However, this series is geared more toward the younger set, like GG for your little sister, and I’ve attempted to read a series similar, The Ashleys... and I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t even finish the book. So, I was initially skeptical when I first heard about this series. But I’m happy to report that this novel is beyond readable, it’s even enjoyable. It’s fun, witty, different and of course full-o-drama! And the whole spin on the girls becoming sisters, was very different! It definitely made for some interesting drama. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this series and absolutely recommend it for tweens! Plus it’s pink. Growing up I was never a fan of pink, but now I have a slight obsession. Especially pink covers! ( )
