Description

THE PARENT TRAP comes to the digital age! When Ruth Quayle used a special app to search for pictures of herself online, she found dozens of images of "Ruth Quayle"--and one of "Ruby Starling." When Ruby Starling gets a message from a Ruth Quayle proclaiming them to be long-lost twin sisters, she doesn't know what to do with it--until another message arrives the day after, and another one. It could be a crazy stalker...but she and this Ruth do share a birthday, and a very distinctive ear.... Ruth is an extroverted American girl. Ruby is a shy English one. As they investigate the truth of their birth and the circumstances of their separation, they also share lives full of friends, family, and possible romances--and they realize they each may be the sister the other never knew she needed. Written entirely in e-mails, letters, Tumblr entries, and movie scripts, FINDING RUBY STARLING is the funny and poignant companion to Karen Rivers's THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ME.

Professional reviews

"A trio of narrators is the perfect match for this epistolary novel. Nora Hunter brings equal parts trepidation and enthusiasm to the voice of 12-year-old Ruth Quayle, an adopted child who discovers she may have an identical twin living in England. Through a series of email and social media posts the truth slowly unfolds. Charlotte Cole and Nora Hunter give the two girls a heartfelt connection, and their emotional "tween-speak"--with both British and American accents--will have listeners chuckling. Liam Aiken applies a calm, level-headed tone to Ruth's best friend, J Edgar, who attempts to keep Ruth's emotions in check. Also notable is Susan Duerden as Ruby's mom, Delilah, a flighty artist whose lackadaisical approach to parenting rings true. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
