The Parent Trap comes to the digital age!

When Ruby Starling gets a message from a Ruth Quayle proclaiming them to be long-lost twin sisters, she doesn't know what to do with it - until another message arrives the day after, and then another one. It could be a crazy stalker . . . but she and this Ruth do share a birthday, and a very distinctive ear.

Ruth is an extroverted North American girl. Ruby is a shy British one. As they investigate the truth of their birth and the circumstances of their separation, they also share lives full of friends, family, and possible romances - and they realize they each may be the sister the other never knew she needed.

Finding Ruby Starling is a funny, poignant, and thoroughly modern tale written entirely in e-mails, letters, Tumblr entries, and movie scripts.

KAREN RIVERS writes rich and funny novels for middle-grade readers, young adults, and the occasional grown-up - including The Encyclopedia of Me, Waiting to Dive, and What Is Real? She lives in Victoria, BC with her two children and a noxious-smelling dog. Visit her online at and @karenrivers.
