Life as It ComesUnknown - 2007
Sisters with nothing in common? That's Mado and Patty. Studious and responsible, 15-year-old Mado is the family brain. Patty, on the other hand, is a carefree 20-year-old party girl who lives on her own and has plenty of boyfriends. The two are following divergent paths . . . until their parents die in a car accident and a family court judge reluctantly appoints Patty as her sister's guardian. Now these two improbable siblings face the challenges of growing up together--but it's Mado who quickly assumes the big sister's role. And it's not a role she particularly wants--especially after Patty announces that she's several months pregnant. . . . Anne-Laure Bondoux writes with insight, humor, and poignancy about the bonds between sisters--and the challenges of everyday life. From the Hardcover edition.
