I couldn’t put down “Sister” by Rosamund Lupton. It took me a minute to get adjusted to the way it was written, but after a chapter or two it wasn’t quite so confusing. This book really made me think about death and afterwards. I got a quote out of that book that really gave me a new meaning of grief: “Grief is love turned into an eternal missing.” That statement was really a profound one for me.
This book is about a girl that is missing and presumed dead. Her sister decides to give up life as she knows it to find out what happened to her missing sibling and during this time discovers what is missing in her own life. I highly recommend this book.
Three words that describe this book: great first novel!
You might want to pick this book up if: You like mysteries and don’t mind a few good cries while reading.
