Publisher's Summary

Lulu is getting the sister she never asked for in this hilarious audiobook filled with hilarious hijinks and feisty twists from Judith Viorst. 

Lulu has received the worst. News. Ever. She's getting a baby sister. No one ever asked her opinion on this debacle. But she'll tell you anyway because she no how, no way, no thank you wants a sibling. 

Undeterred, to prepare Lulu for big sisterhood, her parents bribe - ahem, ask - Lulu to attend Camp Sisterhood, aka big-sister training camp. As a sister in training (SIT), Lulu is assigned a variety of temporary little "siblings" who are supposed to be so much fun Lulu will become excited to have a permanent sibling of her own. 

Well, no one ever said Camp Sisterhood was supposed to teach Lulu how to be a good big sister, so Lulu resolves to be a bad big sister. She insults her little siblings. She taunts them with secrets. She even tricks one of them into carrying both of their backpacks up a mountain! 

But no matter what Lulu does, she can't shake the little terrors. Then some BITs (brothers in training) from the neighboring Camp Brotherhood start picking on Lulu's siblings, and Lulu responds by doing her red-faced, steam-coming-out-of-her-ears thing and showing those BITs who's boss! 

After all, Lulu's siblings may be duds, but they're her duds, and sisters have to stick together. Besides, in the end, Lulu figures having a little sister probably won't be as bad as a getting a tooth pulled. Probably.

Incomplete

The audio version is incomplete. It ends after chapter eleven, omitting the second half of the book: chapters 12-20. Very disappointed with the audio version.

The only Lulu book I'll buy

I thought this might be a fun read about a little girl learning how to handle becoming a big sister in a positive light. Boy was I wrong.

What this was was a book that told the story of a spoiled little girl who's parents are terrified of Lulu's disapproval. She hasn't learned anything by the end of the story except that she can get whatever she likes by refusing to do what her parents want. It certainly did not have any lessons a parent could help their child get over a new sibling coming into the home.

The author's snarky comments during the story telling doesn't add much, including the very last chapter. This is a perfect example of "best selling author" not really meaning "good story".
