Peace, Love and Baby Ducks by Lauren Myracle Book Review

Peace, Love and Baby Ducks by Lauren Myracle
(Dutton, Hardcover, May 2009)
Carly and her little sister Anna have always been close. They complement each other and, in a world of Southern wealth, they keep each other sane. When Carly comes back from an all-summer outdoor camp, she finds that Anna has changed. Suddenly, Anna is hot and Carly is worried that her down-to-earth sister has disappeared in a flurry of bikinis, short skirts, and crushes. Carly finds herself lost and missing her sister. Will the two find common ground?

Peace, Love and Baby Ducks is a perfect book to take to the beach or to summer camp. It's filled with laughs, boy troubles, peace signs, sisterly foibles, and even a few tears. This book is destined to be passed from friend to friend, from sister to sister. Carly is a lovable heroine whose morals are well-intentioned but may need just a little tweaking. I thoroughly enjoyed watching her and Anna as both grew as women and as sisters. Mixing a lot of laughs with some tough decisions, Lauren Myracle is gifted at bringing humor to serious situations.


  1. I like the cover a lot. Great review.

  2. Aw, thanks, Em! So glad you liked it!!!

    Hey, Duckies of Love Contest has just been launched--tons of fabu prizes! Check it out if ya want...

  3. My only experience with Lauren Myracle is How to Be Bad, which I thought was great. I've since become a fan of E. Lockhart, but I have yet to read more Myracle. This one sounds cute. Have you read Bliss?

  4. Aw, I'd love to read this, I had a friend who suddenly became like that, just clothes/boys 24-7. It was really unnerving ^_^
