(Synopsis from Goodreads)
Willa's Rambles:Quinn was the sister I was never to crazy about, until I read Brillant. Brillant was not my favorite of the Trilogy (I think Gorgeous deserves that title) but Brillant still had the usual combination of hilarity, surprise, and heart-warming story of growing up.
Our main character, Quinn, is the rock in the sisters and always expected to be the one who doesn't make the mistakes and is "perfect". But when she is just fed up with everyone overreacting, she lets loose. She falls for the guy she can't get, almost is killed in a car accident when the drivers have been drinking, and she makes mistakes.
The Avery Sisters Trilogy always makes you laugh and feel connected to the characters. You understand what they are going through and Rachel Vail writes characters that encounter situations that hit home for the teen audience. This trilogy has been a great success!
