Big Brother, Little Sister by Elena Southworth

A fun romp…

This hilarious tale from the first-time teen author (13-year-old) introduces the irritable, but thoroughly likable 9-year-old protagonist. With his older sister already in college, 17-year-old Matthew is left alone to deal with the shenanigans of his younger sister, the super-mischievous Aaliyah who tries her best to be the most-irritable sibling in the world. When a summer vacation is planned to celebrate Matthew’s upcoming graduation and eighteenth birthday, the siblings are beyond excited. But little Aaliyah’s aptitude for inviting trouble gets in the way. The hilarious situations, nonstop fun, and the neatly crafted storyline that builds up to an emotionally charged finale will keep readers turning pages. Southworth doesn’t shy away from the story’s sharp edges as she explores the crushing effects the bad parenting can have on the child and the way it affects other siblings. This lively and entertaining tale frequently stretches the limits of plausibility, but both children and teens will find the story relevant and timely, hoping for a return visit from the memorable cast.
