Publisher's Summary

Breakups. Family secrets. Stumbling toward independence.
A riveting and humorous exploration of love, secrets, and sisterhood, It's Not My Favorite is the poignant story of two sisters who discover they must confront their past, let go of their religious guilt, and summon everything in their power to escape their arrested development.
Gwenn Hutchinson runs The Organizer by day and bails her little sister out of emotional quicksand by night. Between that distraction and the full-time job of creating a vivid fantasy life for herself, she can almost drown out her mother's post-divorce ranting, "I've always had a man to take care of me, Gwendolyn. You're not gettin' any younger, you know."
Rachel Hutchinson bakes away her anxiety while avoiding a painful breakup with her secret girlfriend. The only people who don't know this "girlfriend" secret are her judgmental parents, Pastor Ed and Shirley.
Just when it seems things can't get worse, Gwenn finds a pack of old photographs that may uncover a family secret. Will these pictures lead to the truth, or bring them face-to-face with the reality they've worked so hard to avoid?
It's Not My Favorite is the first book in the hilarious, fast-paced, romantic comedy, The Lake Effect Series, full of snappy dialogue and memorable, quirky characters, guaranteed to win a spot in your heart.

It's Not My Favorite

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I expected more from this novel than I received. It's less about two sisters and more about one of the sisters and her possible brother/lover. I really liked Rachel, whose story line is mostly crammed into a few small chapters while the main plot focuses on Gwenn. I feel like Rachel would have been much more interesting as the main character in this novel, or at least a serious secondary character. Her LGBT plot line was much easier to read than Gwenn's pretty boring life. Gwenn is so desperate to escape her born again parents that she daydreams that she was swapped at birth. After finding a photo of a man that she thinks might be her father, Gwenn embarks on a journey of discovery which takes her to a possible brother and a physical journey to another continent. Daniel, I was leery about. Like... he follows Gwenn across the world after meeting her twice because he's in love with her? Why exactly did his therapist not flag this up as worrisome behaviour? I realise that the therapist tells him to get Gwenn to view him as a lover and not as a brother to progress the plot line, but I really didn't like it. He was stalking.

That being said, the best part of this novel was the interactions between Gwenn and Rachel. It was easy to feel the friendship and love between them and that sustained this novel. The audio narration was also spectacular and I found it really easy to get into.

Not what I thought, pleasantly surprised.

I almost didn't give this book a valid chance. I am so glad that I did. Funny and touching. “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
