Dad has moved out and Mom has checked out, leaving the door wide open for the beautiful, erratic Rachel to torment her "loser, loner" younger sister, Nadine. With her family in full meltdown mode, Nadine is alone, trying to cope with Rachel's increasingly unpredictable moods. Friendless, but determined to turn her life around, Nadine meets Anne, who introduces her to field hockey and to her hot twin brothers, Matt and Cameron. As Nadine's star begins to rise, however, Rachel plots to bring her back down, and the tension ratchets up when Rachel starts dating Matt just as Nadine is getting to know Cameron better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and furious (and sometimes fun) read Has anyone else had a big bully as a sibling? Or suffered a marriage breakdown when it seemed impossible to cope and just wanted to run away? It was good to find out that I was not alone. Memories of my own family history flooded back as the chapters of this book flew by. I found the plot and characters pulled me in and I couldn’t put it down for long – read it on and off for six hours. Boom – suddenly the story climaxed and I was sorry that it was over! Good and interesting story line and many great twists along the way. I am an adult, but I really enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entertaining & useful book for young females If I had a teenage daughter, I would want them to read this book and use it to discuss sticky situations with me and others who are close to her. Nadine is a protagonist who is at once both hopeful and resigned, endearing and awkward, brave and resilient -- in short a realistic portrayal of a teen girl figuring out how to thrive. NemeSIS is an entertaining and easy read that can only inspire female youth to successfully navigate the complex labyrinth of ethical dilemmas and uncomfortable situations that often occur during high school, from bullying and cyber bullying to family breakdown, from peer acceptance to female relationship dynamics, from romantic crushes to self-identity issues.
