Seeking to become more sophisticated and a seventh grade Somebody, Jackie goes too far in observing and copying her older sister and precipitates war between them

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7 Stories about sibling rivalry abound , and My Sister the Meanie is no better and no worse than most of them. In this one, seventh-grader Jackie desperately wants to be asked to join a club at school, but assumes she is being excluded because she doesn't act mature enough. In an effort to remedy this situation, Jackie and best friend Natalie spend as much time as possible observing and emulating Jackie's older sister, pretty and popular Sharon. From here the scenerio is predictable and the situations exaggerated as Jackie and Sharon work through a series of misunderstandings that lead first to all-out declared war and finally to reconciliation and the realization that they can, in fact, be friends. The message here is not an original one, but the story moves well, and the motives, if not always the actions, are believable. A good addition to collections where Ellen Conford and Lois Lowry are popular. Trish Ebbatson, Mansfield-Richland County Public Library, Ohio

From Publishers Weekly:

The author of the popular Kobie series takes a look at sibling relationships, focusing on Jackie, a bratty but ennobled younger sister who is constantly overlooked in favor of her "perfect" older sister, Sharon. The sisters are equally to blame for the misunderstandings between them. And it is reasonably clear that the truce at the end is but a temporary moment of calmthe sisters can't solve everything at once. But there are signs of strain in attempting to turn the sisters' battle into a substantial plot, anddespite the humor in their mistakesthe antics don't add up to real sustaining action. Ages 9-13.
