The Deadly Sister

The Deadly Sister by Eliot Schrefer
Abbey is jogging and finds the body of a popular fellow classmate. Jefferson. She also finds her sister’s cell phone next to the body. Her sister Maya is a known stoner, school dropout, and unpredictable character. And Abbey’s only thought is to save her and find the real killer.

The plot twists nicely, leading us down many paths, through Maya’s tattoo artist and cross-dressing friends, past Jefferson’s obvious need to have sex with and control every girl, through his drug dealing, into his trailer home and nerdy brother, who is set up by a panicking Abbey as the killer.

There is enough suspense to make this a completely satisfying story – one where the suspense follows all the way to the last word. 8th graders will love this. The high school crowd will own it completely.
