...One of us is wise like an owl + stays up late observing things. And the other one is fierce like a shark + is always on the move. Maybe it seems like we have nothing in common, but that isn't true. Together, we cover land + sky + sea. Together, we are a team.

...families are made from people who want to be together more than they want to be apart

What animates my soul is having a friend like you.

Sweet book about two girls who live across the country from each other thrown together through no choice or desire of their own, because their dads may be getting married. But when their dads decide they aren't right for each other, the girls just can't accept that. They go to great lengths to try to bring them back together with unexpected and unintended results. The one weakness in my opinion was the entire premise on which the book (including even the title) is built: the letter format used. In my opinion, the authors tried a little too hard to make the story work within the epistolary format. I think the story would have been stronger if they had just told it straight out rather than trying to fit the story-telling into the confines of letters and emails.
