The Honeymoon Sisters by Gwyneth Rees

The Honeymoon Sisters was just what I wanted at the time I read it. I had recently tried a rather gory novel, and put it down again, and I was in the library trying to choose a book to read when its eye-catching yellow cover persuaded me to borrow it.
It certainly pulled my heartstrings, that’s for sure! This amazing book’s plot is so simple yet so astonishingly brilliant. Poppy lives with her mum most of the week, and she can’t remember a time when she didn’t have a younger foster brother or sister.
But when their most recent charge moves on, the last person Poppy expects to host is Sadie Shaw, the new girl in her class. Poppy just doesn’t understand why her mum has fallen for Sadie’s sweet-as-honey act. Poppy knows just how horrid she can be. But the two sisters begin to bond, over their big secret, they’re cousins!
This amazing book has its fair share of negatives, but on balance it was great. When I saw the author’s name, I wasn’t so sure as I’d never heard of Gwyneth Rees before, but as soon as I read the first sentence, I knew I would enjoy this book.
