Blog Tour: Review + Quotes: She’s the Worst by Lauren Spieller + Giveaway

Sister stories will always pique my interest. And the sisters in She’s the Worst are some of my favorite. They make mistakes, hurt each other, and have to find their way back to each other.


Sisters April and Jenn haven’t been close in years. Jenn’s too busy with school, the family antique shop, and her boyfriend, and April would rather play soccer and hang out with the boy next door.

But when April notices her older sister is sad about staying home for college, she decides to do something about it. The girls set off to revive a pact they made as kids: spend an epic day exploring the greatest hits of their childhood and all that Los Angeles has to offer.

Then April learns that Jenn has been keeping a secret that could rip their family—and their feuding parents—apart. With only one day to set things right, the sisters must decide if their relationship is worth saving, or if the truth will tear them apart for good.


(Disclaimer: I received this book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

Coming from a complicated sister relationship myself, She’s the Worst is a breath of fresh air. It’s got to be one of the most genuine and complex sister relationship I’ve ever read. And in that there’s a slice of truth. Told from dual perspective, we are able to see their days from both April and Jenn’s perspective – their own secrets. We can get stuck in our own head, our own problems and perspective, but our unique perspective allows us to see each of their perceptions of each other. Each of their duties, obligations, and feelings of sacrifice.

It’s this tenuous balance between living for our family and apart from them. How we have to break out on our own, start living for us. The characters truly stand out in She’s the Worst as they grapple with expectations, doubt, and responsibility. Bottom line, if you have ever had a relationship with a sibling where you’ve grown apart, said things you can’t take back, or haven’t spoken to for a while, She’s the Worst is going to resonate with you. It’s a story about family, our dreams, and realizing that we can’t be strong for anyone else if we can’t be true to ourselves.
