Total Parent Trap vibes, but obviously not the exact storyline. If you are a fan of the original movie you will start singing “Let’s Get Together yeah, yeah, yeah” 🎶 to yourself quite often, or at least I did. 😉

Bett and Avery’s Dads are dating – to their shock and dismay. To get them to bond, the dads are sending them off to summer camp. Boy are they unhappy; they are the complete opposites with nothing in common and do not want to be forced to be friends, worst of all sisters. Their communications over email are hilarious and they will eventually get used to each other when all goes to heck. What type of shenanigans will they find themselves in? What life lessons will they learn? Give it a go and find out!

The story is told over a series of emails and letters (similar to When You Read This by Mary Adkins which I loved). I have to remember that the audience for this book is middle grade and with that I made sure my rating reflected that (to the best I could). It was really fun and brings you back to your youth.

My only criticism of the audio versus the actual book: during the first half of the audio there is an ongoing email chain, when the narrators are reading the subject you hear “re: re: re: re: re: re:, re:, re:, re:, re:….” for like 10 seconds – wish it were stated as “re: times 20.”

Are you a fan of The Parent Trap? Not the Lindsay Lohan one, but the original!
