Book Review: Starfish Sisters by J.C. Burke - Reviewed by bookwormS (20 Mar 2010)
Four girls worlds collide at a surfing camp for elite young female surfers. At first they are separated by jealousy, secrets and differences, but soon they become good friends and a team. They stick together, encourage each other and face each others problems as one. But will they all be good enough to be chosen for the next team? The girls will have to stay focused on their surfing to do this, and keep their friends that matter close. This is a fabulous book about friendship, and the troubles and secrets that can create a wall in friendships, but this book shows that these walls can be knocked down. This was one of my favourite books, and I couldn't wait to read the second one!
