by Lauren Myracle

Penguin Young Readers Group | May 13, 2010 | Trade Paperback

Peace, Love, And Baby Ducks is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Wealth. Privilege. Way too many pastel-tinted opinions. That is Carly’s life, and . . . It’s. Getting. On. Her. Nerves. Carly is ready to ditch the southern princess act and become real. The thing is, she’s always counted on her little sister, Anna, to love and support her—and tell her how right she is. But when Anna turns “hot” over the course of a single summer, everything goes weird. Suddenly Anna’s swimming in the deep end with the big girls while Carly watches from the kiddie pool, alone. Carly’s always relied on the constancy of her sister, but now everything is different, and she’s not so sure she likes it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well..... ...... really good in the beginning, the middle was a bit dull, but the ending was great. I would recommend it, it was cute, very predictable but an OK read.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from was expecting more... If you are just looking for a simple and light novel, you will like this one. While there were some humorous banter between Carly, her sister and her friends, and many comedic Carly moments, there weren't any memorable or "wow" moments in this novel. Myracle's other novels were really good and had their own gimmicks (in the format of IMs). But for some reason this one did not do it for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heartwarming AND Hilarious! After spending her summer getting in touch with nature, 15 year old Carly decides to put aside her materialistic life and focus on the things that really matter. As in, things that are not related to money, clothes or appearances. But when Carly comes home suffused in her new outlook on life, she is shocked to find out that her little sister, Anna has morphed into a barbie doll! As in, her former companion and dorky sister has turned into the sexy girl that all the guys lust after. Including the object of Carly's affections... Along with her sister's transformation, Carly has to deal with a lack of acceptance from her best friend. Carly's new views of life set her apart from the main crowd, a fact only emphasized by her sister's complete transformation into a "Barbie." Anna's change really shakes Carly and Anna herself, up. For one thing, Carly can't help but feel inferior to her newly hot sister, causing the two to grow apart. And on another, Carly can't seem to realize what her sister is going through and that the grass on the other side isn't always greener... Eventually Carly whips her life back into shape with new and old friends who actually appreciate her for who she is. People who are real. But when Anna's struck by a problem that only her sister can solve, both realize the true meaning of sisterhood. I adore Lauren Myracle's TTYL series which has been one of my favorite YA rereads ever since...well...the first one came out! So obviously, I had some pretty high expectations from Peace, Love and Baby Ducks. And, she didn't disappoint me. Being a sister myself, reading about Carly and Anna's relationship was really intruiging. Their relationship versus the one between my sister and I. While it was fairly different from the ones my sisters and I have, the sisterly banter and their fights were all too realistic. In fact, pretty much everything was on target relaying to the characters in the novel. The parents, Cole (the "sexy, bad boy", Roger (who may or may not be Carly's ironic love boodle, the snobby girls at the Christian private school that Anna and Carly go to and Anna and Carly themselves. It was really easy to picture the characters, and relate to them...or hate them, depending on who they were. The only thing that kind of irked me was how blind Carly could be at times. There were some moments where I just wanted to dive into the book and shake her till she regained some common sense... Anyways, the storyline was pretty good, I have to say. It was unique yet typical all at the same time. As in, it could have just been a generic storyline about a girl getting to know and accept herself as well as others. But instead, it was a heartwarming and HILARIOUS story about a wacky teenager and her sister and the way they dealt with the problems that were thrown at them. Oh, and did I mention that it was really funny? I love the way that Lauren Myracle managed to tackle important problems while keeping the mood light and fun. It made for a really enjoyable read.
