For Real by Alison Cherry - ADVISABLE

Cherry, Alison For Real Delacorte Press, 2014. $17.99. 290 pgs. Content: PG-13 for language (no Fs, 10 swears).

Claire has spent her life in the shadows and doesn’t seem to mind, but has done some branching out while her older sister, Miranda, has been at college.  When Claire and her parents go to pick her up from college, Miranda discovers her boyfriend is cheating on her. Claire tries to show her how she’s grown up and suggests revenge on Samir, the ex-boyfriend.  The three end up on a reality dating show called Around the World in Eighty Dates in hopes of sabotaging Samir and getting revenge.  

The book is slightly predictable but has some unexpected twists and turns that shows just how strong the bonds between sisters can be.
