A new love, a secret sister, and a summer she'll never forget.

From the beloved author of Tweet Cute comes Emma Lord's You Have a Match, a hilarious and heartfelt novel of romance, sisterhood, and friendship...
When Abby signs up for a DNA service, it's mainly to give her friend and secret love interest, Leo, a nudge. After all, she knows who she is already: Avid photographer. Injury-prone tree climber. Best friend to Leo and Connie...although ever since the B.E.I. (Big Embarrassing Incident) with Leo, things have been awkward on that front.
But she didn't know she's a younger sister.
When the DNA service reveals Abby has a secret sister, shimmery-haired Instagram star Savannah Tully, it's hard to believe they're from the same planet, never mind the same parents — especially considering Savannah, queen of green smoothies, is only a year and a half older than Abby herself.
The logical course of action? Meet up at summer camp (obviously) and figure out why Abby's parents gave Savvy up for adoption. But there are complications: Savvy is a rigid rule-follower and total narc. Leo is the camp's co-chef, putting Abby's growing feelings for him on blast. And her parents have a secret that threatens to unravel everything.
But part of life is showing up, leaning in, and learning to fit all your awkward pieces together. Because sometimes, the hardest things can also be the best ones.

It's like an inverse retelling of 'The Parent Trap.' Abby and Savvy discover they are full sisters via a DNA test. After an in-person meet they decide to attend the same camp. While getting to know one another they hope to also unravel the mystery of why one girl was given up for adoption while 18 months later, the second is not. Camp is complicated. Both girls find that long-time friendships are in crisis adding a new level of difficulty to their mission. Then both sets of parents show up--on the same day. The initial confrontation is drama-filled and adds to the mystery. Abby and Savvy have evidence that their parents were friends at one time. How can they repair the ruins? How can the girls keep from scorching current friendships? When is it an appropriate time to go from friend to more than friend. The couples in this new YA book are diverse, but I enjoyed having the romance aspect more on the back burner while friendships were explored and strengthened for both generations. There were moments when Abby and Savvy were discovering shared experiences that brought tears as did the forethought of Poppy. Not as fun for me as 'Tweet Cute,' but another entertaining title from Emma Lord.
