9780061686481: The September Sisters

Abigail Reed and her younger sister, Becky, are always at each other's throats. Their mother calls them the September Sisters, because their birthdays are only a day apart, and pretends that they're best friends. But really, they delight in making each other miserable. Then Becky disappears in the middle of the night, and a torn gold chain with a sapphire heart charm is the only clue to the mystery of her kidnapping. Abby struggles to cope with her own feelings of guilt and loss as she tries to keep her family together. When her world is at its bleakest, Abby meets a new neighbor, Tommy, who is dealing with his own loss, and the two of them discover that love can bloom, even when it's surrounded by thorns.

This exquisitely written first novel illustrates life as it truly is—filled with fear and danger, hope and love, comfort and uncertainty.

About the Author:

Jillian Cantor is the author of two young adult novels, The September Sisters and The Life of Glass. She has an MFA from the University of Arizona and was a recipient of the national Jacob K. Javits Fellowship.

From Booklist:

In this debut novel’s dramatic opening, Abigail is called out of her tenth-grade class to hear the words that she’s been waiting for since her sister, Becky, went missing two years ago: “They’ve found her.” Who took Becky? Where is the body? Was she murdered? The police consider Abigail’s depressed mother a prime suspect. Is she cheating on her husband? The story goes on too long, but what will hold readers, along with the suspense of the whodunit, is the honesty of the sibling story. Abigail remembers her quarrels with her sister and their rivalry for their parents’ attention, and her first-person narrative tells the truth about the breakup of a family; her grief, anger and long-time jealousy; and even her complicated feelings after she makes out with the boy next door. The dialogue, clipped and intense, leaves room for readers to recognize their own experiences in the words. And, always, there is the suspense: Where is Becky? Is “missing” worse than dead? Grades 7-12. --Hazel Rochman
