YA Book Review- The Complete History of Why I Hate Her by Jennifer Richard Jacobson

Getting a summer job at a resort in Maine might not seem like anything out of the ordinary for a teen, but for Nola it is a chance to live her own life for a little while. Her little sister, Song, has been battling cancer for a long time and Nola has forgotten what life was like before she (happily) spent all of her time helping her family. Almost as soon as she arrives at the resort, she is befriended by the exciting and addicting Carly. The two become attached at the hip and it seems like it will be the best summer Nola has ever had…that is, until Carly starts showing her manipulative side. Soon Nola can’t seem to do or say anything with Carly using it to her own advantage, and the friendship becomes  toxic.

Pick this up if you like summer stories, complicated friendships, or books from the perspective of a sibling to a cancer patient.
