Title: The Deadly Sister
By: Eliot Schrefer
Reading Level: Young Adult Mystery
Publisher: Scholastic Press (May 2010)
Abby Goodwin is sure her sister Tabitha isn't a murderer. But her parents don't agree. Her friends don't agree. And the cops definitely don't agree. Tabitha is a drop-out, a stoner, a girl who's obsessed with her tutor, Clyde Andrews...until he ends up dead. Tabitha runs away, and leaves Abby following the trail of clues. Each piece of evidence points to Tabitha, but it also appears that Clyde had secrets of his own. And enemies. Like his brother, who Abby becomes involved with...until he falls under suspicion.
Is Abby getting closer to finding the true murderer? Or is someone leading her down a twisted false path?
Eliot Schrefer has created a intricate web of lies in this Young Adult Mystery. After finding a young man dead on her morning run. Abby is sure that her sister can not be to blame. Although, discovering the truth may be a danger all its own. My attention was captured by the book description alone. Although, once I began the story I struggled to stay focused. The potential for an awesome story is evident, but the suspense was lacking. Ultimately, I don’t have a whole lot to review about this particular book. I find myself staring at my computer screen with nothing to say. I would rather not review a book than lack any words to describe it. Look for this book on a second chance giveaway.
