Meet Siri: New Jersey-born ballerina who loves cooking and hard rock.
Meet Jamie: L.A.-raised aspiring comedian with bright red hair who can talk to anyone.
Siri doesn’t remember anything about the life she and Jamie shared before their parents separated. But Jamie remembers everything about Siri, even though the two haven’t seen each other in over a decade. That is until Siri’s back injury and Jamie’s stage fright lead them both to an off-the-grid retreat. After a rocky start, Siri and Jamie—with the help of some glitter and a riddle—realize that they aren’t just two strangers who coincidentally look alike, but sisters separated by their parents years ago.
Cue the Freaky Friday switch of bodies, The Parent Trap master plan to get their family back together, and a dash of romance.

Filled with hilarious and relatable voices, BETTER TOGETHER is the heartfelt perfect mix of The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, and a bit of Rainbow Rowell’s FANGIRL. Exploring love, relationships, and vulnerability, BETTER TOGETHER will have readers of TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE and ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER falling in love and ready for more from Christine Riccio.
