From two extraordinary authors comes a moving, exuberant, laugh-out-loud novel about friendship and family, told entirely in emails and letters.

Avery Bloom, who's bookish, intense, and afraid of many things, particularly deep water, lives in New York City. Bett Devlin, who's fearless, outgoing, and loves all animals as well as the ocean, lives in California. What they have in common is that they are both twelve years old, and are both being raised by single, gay dads.

When their dads fall in love, Bett and Avery are sent, against their will, to the same sleepaway camp. Their dads hope that they will find common ground and become friends—and possibly, one day, even sisters.

But things soon go off the rails for the girls (and for their dads too), and they find themselves on a summer adventure that neither of them could have predicted. Now that they can't imagine life without each other, will the two girls (who sometimes call themselves Night Owl and Dogfish) figure out a way to be a family?

"Featuring a dramatic climax and a host of surprising twists, the novel affirms that families conventional and unconventional are families just the same." —Publishers Weekly

"The novel manages the difficult balancing act of using increasingly ridiculous, and often funny, situations to drill home the idea that every close relationship takes hard work, particularly when things start going south." —The New York Times

"A sweet tale of two girls who become best friends online. It'll appeal to reluctant readers, thanks to the short, breezy way the story is told by email and letter exchanges." —Common Sense Media

"This hilarious book seamlessly covers a variety of important topics, from puberty to race." —Vancouver Sun
