Publisher's Summary

From two extraordinary authors comes a moving, exuberant, laugh-out-loud novel about friendship and family, told entirely in emails and letters.

Avery Bloom, who's bookish, intense, and afraid of many things, particularly deep water, lives in New York City. Bett Devlin, who's fearless, outgoing, and loves all animals as well as the ocean, lives in California. What they have in common is that they are both 12 years old and are both being raised by single, gay dads.

When their dads fall in love, Bett and Avery are sent, against their will, to the same sleepaway camp. Their dads hope they will find common ground and become friends - and possibly, one day, even sisters.

But things soon go off the rails for the girls (and for their dads, too), and they find themselves on a summer adventure that neither of them could have predicted. Now that they can't imagine life without each other, will the two girls (who sometimes call themselves Night Owl and Dogfish) figure out a way to be a family?

Read by Cassandra Morris and Imani Parks, with Michael Crouch, Sullivan Jones, Bahni Turpin, and Renata Friedman, featuring Cassandra Campbell, Robbie Daymond, Giordon Diaz, Alexandra Harris, Jonathan McClain, Emily Rankin, Abigail Revasch, Erin Spencer, and Emily Woo Zeller.

Charming and funny

This is a quick listen that is sweet and funny. I thought it was totally charming. I’ve been listening to some dark true crime, and this was just the listen to lighten things up for me.

Amazing book!

One of the things I loved about this book is that it tells readers that every family is different... and not one is perfect. Avery and Bett are such lovable characters and their story is sweet and heartwarming. The Audible version of this is told very well with a wide cast of narrators which makes it very entertaining. Highly recommend this!!

Funny and Captivating

The Audible was so good. I really enjoyed everything about this book. Even the repetitive Re re re re.
Enjoyed it so much I bought the book and CD audio for my 13year old grand daughter. I hope she likes it as much as I do.
Don't miss out on this one.
