characters The Smart One and the Pretty One

summary ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Claire LaZebnik review The Smart One and the Pretty One 103 Stumbles across the decades old documentFrustrated and embarrassed by Ava's constant lectures about financial responsibility all because she's in a little debt Okay a lot of debt Lauren decides to do some sisterly interfering of her own and tracks down her sister's childhood fiancé When she finds him the highly inappropriate twice divorced but incredibly charming Russell Markowitz. Claire LaZebnik s The Smart One And The Pretty One is the story of two sisters trying to understand each other as adults while simultaneously boosting each other as they share difficult experiences And though I wanted to like the Nickerson girls and cheer for them from the get go I just had too many issues with this bookFirstly both sisters felt like such stereotypes to me Ava is a lawyer yes of course she is while Lauren worked at a fashionable boutiue stocking up on clothes and other items she couldn t really afford She s materialistic and a little bratty She craves the spotlight and demands it of everyone in her life In terms of stereotypes she s the poster child for youngest sister while Ava has her post as mature big sister all locked upI never felt like I really got to know either of them I was standing at a distance looking in as they dealt with their myriad of problems Part of what kept me disconnected was the narrative voice third person and the fact that I couldn t get into the minds of either woman The novel would have functioned better for me if it were told by one of the sisters preferably Ava because she annoyed me far less though Lauren s insight might have helped me understand her better as a characterWhile we saw the Nickerson daughters evolve by the end of the novel it just wasn t enough to redeem them in my eyes While LaZebnik can certainly write I didn t identify or like any of her characters and like a fight with my own sister The Smart One And The Pretty One left me with an unsettled feeling in my stomach

summary ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Claire LaZebnik review The Smart One and the Pretty One 103 When Ava Nickerson was a child her mother jokingly betrothed her to a friend's son and the contract the parents made has stayed safely buried for years Now that still single Ava is closing in on thirty no one even remembers she was once engaged to the Markowitz boy But when their mother is diagnosed with cancer Ava's prodigal little sister Lauren comes home to Los Angeles where she. I wanted a light fluffy read before I tackled a serious and heart tugging book from my stash I just never got into the plot other than to feel disgust and frustration with the two sisters Ava and Lauren Ava is a presentable but frumpy hard working lawyer Younger Lauren is cute and perky and in financial trouble Finding herself fired from her job facing eviction from her New York apartment and burdened with debt she ups and moves back to California to literally sponge off her family when she learns of her mother s cancer Ava tries to get Lauren back on track with finances while Lauren tries to make over Ava When Lauren found a betrothal agreement between her parents and Russell Markowitz s parents made when the two when were about 7 years old she goes all out to bring the two of them together and to seal the deal Along the way she meets Daniel at the hospital where his mother is also undergoing chemo A strange love hate relationship develops between the two I found all the characters shallow and spineless with no real spark of personality The only character I truly enjoyed was Nancy the girls mother who remains cheerful and hopeful that she will beat the cancer that her own daughters don t seem to take very seriously Light and fluffyI got that but it fell flat for me when I continued to read and not care about the outcome of the plot one way or the other
