When Skyler opens her school locker to find an ominous challenge, she knows she is in for a long year. Kina and her pals were on the warpath by hijacking Skyler Bram’s locker contents and spreading it at undisclosed locations around the school campus. Skyler really didn’t want to play Kina’s game, but was more than aware of the consequences of denying her nemesis this challenge. After all, Kina was a member of the elite Cool Kids Club. She and her cronies were not to be challenged. But Skyler and Kina share a secret that abruptly explodes in public, causing more than a stir in the social world of school and home. Can they learn to live together as biological sisters and convince their opposing circle of friends that all is well on the Bram front?

Little Bram by Michael C. Barrett is the story of half-sisters discovering their many similarities in the competitive atmosphere of teen drama. Michael C. Barrett weaves convincing dialogue and plot progression in this YA story of social drama so characteristic of today’s youth. Although the main characters of Skyler and Kina are projected as surprisingly mature in their attitudes, I appreciated the quality of writing that Barrett shares in this relatable tale. While the characters attempt to maintain their individual personalities, they learn the important lesson of tolerance that ultimately results in an unlikely friendship. As a supporter of quality teen fiction, I appreciated the war between good and evil represented in this highly readable novel.
