From bestselling author Aimee Friedman, an acclaimed story about sisters, lies, and laughter -- now in paperback!

Katie and Michaela Wilder are New York City girls...and best friends. But everything changes when they move upstate to rural Fir Lake. Katie is horrified by their new surroundings: the too-friendly neighbors, the lack of a subway, the fact they live near actual cows. She's shocked when Michaela adapts to the country life effortlessly, dating a cute football player and attending homecoming with something resembling enjoyment.

And most shocking of all? She's started keeping secrets from Katie.
