Book Review: Sister by Rosamund Lupton


If you happen to be lucky enough to be on vacation next week, or the whole summer for that matter (jealous), then you might need a few books to include in your beach bag. Who wants to go and sit on the beach with nothing to do but sit there and…tan. OK, still bitter about people having vacation, but I’ll get over it. To help you pass your oodles of free time, the debut book called Sister by Rosamund Lupton is generating all kinds of buzz and might be worthy of a look.

This book has some met to it, so don’t expect it to be a fluffy summer read. There is a bit of sadness, a lot of intrigue and and some extra mystery thrown in for good measure.

The jist of the story is that the main character Beatrice finds her sister dead. The police rule it a suicide, but Beatrice knows her sister would not do that. Beatrice decides to investigate on her own and what she finds – lots of crazy things she didn’t know about her sister and officials within the community – gives her reason to keep digging further. At the risk of losing herself in the investigation, Beatrice presses on in order to get to the truth of what really happened to her sister.

The book has a bit of sadness in it, since Beatrice is dealing with the loss of her sister, but there is a lot of plot twists and turns. If drama is what you prefer to read, this book hasĀ  it! Great book will keep you turning pages and you will be sunburned in no time.
