Brianna longs for the day not to have her annoying younger sister, Julianne, as a constant tag-a-long. Life would be so much better with someone else. To solve her problem, Brianna decides to trade in her sister, just like a used car. Much to her pleasure mother says it’s possible through the Sister Exchange. Brianna is beyond excited and happily listens in on her mother’s phone call. Each choice presented to Brianna never seems up to her standards, until the final choice. Should she make this exchange or stick to who she knows?

  1. This sounds like a really cute book. I like the cover.

    I'm the oldest of four siblings and I don't ever remember wanting to trade away any of my siblings, but I've known a few kids who've wanted to do that very thing, lol.

    Have a great week!

  2. LOL, it sounds like something I wanted to do many times! I was an only child until I was almost 9 and then my Mom had 4 children in 6 years.

    Great review, Donna!
