Great Gatsby Inspired!

I finished this book about a month ago and I have to say that I enjoyed it! It's a light beach read and is nice for the summer. The story is about two half-sisters sisters who are reunited after growing up apart by the death of an Aunt who was very close them. Aunt Lydia owned "Fool's House" in the Hamptons with quirky neighbors, that was utterly falling apart. Through the story the sisters grow much closer, have love interests and learn a lot about one another. "The Great Gatsby" is one of my favorite books, but doesn't have much to do with the rest of the novel. I'd recommend this book if you want to read something fun and light and enjoy a fun story about vacationing in the summer!

Speaking of "The Great Gatsby", Kate Spade has recently debuted famous book clutches. A fun addition that would have been perfect for the first party thrown in "The Summer We Read Gatsby" that the sisters attended! I don't know how much use that this clutch would get in my wardrobe, but it is certainly a conversation piece!
