NemeSIS by Susan Marshall

Dad has moved out and Mom has checked out, leaving the door wide open for the beautiful, erratic Rachel to torment her "loser, loner" younger sister, Nadine. With her family in full meltdown mode, Nadine is alone, trying to cope with Rachel’s increasingly unpredictable moods. Friendless, but determined to turn her life around, Nadine meets Anne, who introduces her to field hockey and to her hot twin brothers, Matt and Cameron.

As Nadine’s star begins to rise, however, Rachel plots to bring her back down, and the tension ratchets up when Rachel starts dating Matt just as Nadine is getting to know Cameron better. When Matt’s interest starts to fade, Rachel goes into overdrive. Is Nadine ready to risk it all in a final showdown with her sister?

Firstly, I truly loved the blurb done for NemeSIS that pulled me right in and got me downloaded it right off the ARC section from the galley. Honestly, it has been a while now that I've been reading the book and I just finished it. I know it has been out for a year and so but still I couldn't abandon a book, even if I didn't enjoyed it, without a review. Now that I have sometime to sort out my thoughts to review an ARC once again, I am glad to have this opportunity to do so.

I shall start with the plot. Basically, the whole book is just about sibling-relationship that needs to be fixed. The whole point of the book and beyond that, I don't think I have anything to say that truly captivated me to really thoroughly enjoy the book because it revolves around just the rivalry between Rachel and Nadine. Other than that is the old plain high school scenarios and love interests that seems a bit cliche as well but I can give it flirty and cute.

Ultimately, NemeSIS gave me the sense of having to actually see the point of being the responsible one because sibling-relationship has to be about teamwork and not destroying that little haven when the only family you have is your sibling. That is the message I like that this book emphasizes on throughout the story and to return the same kindness to our own siblings in our unique lovingly way.
