The Sorta Sisters

The Sorta Sisters
by Adrian Fogelin

This is a story written for "tweens" and enjoyable by all ages. Two young girls, both smart and both misfits at school, have never met each other but become pen pals. Anna, a 12-year-old foster child, lives in Tallahassee with a wonderful foster mother and Mica, age 11, lives on a beat-up boat with her marine-biologist father whom she adores but who can't properly care for her. Through their correspondence, the reader learns about the girls' lives, interests, fears and successes. A great read with the bonus of terrific illustrations of Florida sea life and plant life as both girls share their lives with each other.
