9780545165747: The Deadly Sister

From the author of School for Dangerous Girls, another suspenseful stunner about a girl who helps her sister escape from a murder charge - and then falls for the murder victim's brother.

Abby Goodwin is sure her sister Maya isn't a murderer. But her parents don't agree. Her friends don't agree. And the cops definitely don't agree. Maya is a drop-out, a stoner, a girl who's obsessed with her tutor, Jefferson Andrews...until he ends up dead. Maya runs away, and leaves Abby following the trail of clues. Each piece of evidence points to Maya, but it also appears that Jefferson 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?

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up–Abby has always protected her delinquent younger sister, Maya, always been there to shelter her misdeeds (drug use, running away, etc.) from their parents. But now, when Abby finds Maya's boyfriend dead in the river with Maya's cell phone nearby, she is going to have her hands full because it sure looks like her sister killed Jefferson in a drug-induced haze. Abby springs into action and begins playing detective to see if she can pin the crime on a more likely culprit. It turns out that Jefferson wasn't the angel adults had perceived him to be, and there are plenty of people with motive to kill him. The Deadly Sister is riddled with red herrings and told by an unreliable narrator, which make the surprise ending all the more shocking. Well-drawn characters, realistic dialogue, and suspenseful twists and turns add to the appeal. Teens crave mystery, and this book will suit them just fine.Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL
