The book Same Difference by Siobhan Vivian is a realistic fiction book. This book is about a 16 year old girl. Her name is Emily. She has lived in Cherry Grove, New Jersey for most of her life. Now that she is getting older she has to think about college. She is in her senior year of high school. She has joined an art program in Philadelphia. Her best friend named Meg lives right next door to her. They spend their whole summer together. Sometimes they are in the pool or sometimes they are at their favorite coffee shop, which is Starbucks. Meg has a boyfriend named Rick. On the first day of Emily’s art program she bumps onto a guy in front of a coffee shop while she was looking for the Philadelphia College. Later that day she finds out that the guy she bumped into was her teacher assistant. Then the story continues as Emily faces some difficulties with having two best friends which are polar opposites.
The authors writing style was pretty easy to understand. The words weren’t that trick. It was the right level for me. Over all it was a great book. I would prefer this book to my friends and/or my peers, I think they would really like it. This book shows many aspects of a teens life which I found to be very interesting which made me want to read more and figure out what was going to happen next. Mirza H.; Teen Reviewer
