Jacob Have I Loved
We've talked talking about this book on Instagram. Newbery-winning classic by the author of Bridge to Terabithia. From the publisher: "I was proud of my sister, but that year, something began to rankle beneath the pride. Caroline is beautiful. Caroline is talented. Caroline is better. Growing up on a tiny Chesapeake Bay island in the early 1940s, angry Louise reveals how Caroline robbed her of everything: her hopes for schooling, her friends, her mother, even her name. While everyone pampered Caroline, Wheeze (her sister's name for her) began to learn the ways of the watermen and the secrets of the island."
The remarkable Newbery-winning classic about a painful sibling rivalry, and one sister’s struggle to make her own way.
Sara Louise Bradshaw is sick and tired of her beautiful twin Caroline. Ever since they were born, Caroline has been the pretty one, the talented one, the better sister. Even now, Caroline seems to take everything: Louise’s friends, their parents’ love, her dreams for the future.
For once in her life, Louise wants to be the special one. But in order to do that, she must first figure out who she is . . . and find a way to make a place for herself outside her sister’s shadow.
