The Deadly Sister by Eliot Schrefer

Source: Publisher

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

This book was an intense thriller. I don't usually read thriller, but this one blew me away. The writing was amazing and Eliot knows how to keep the reader engaged. Never did I run into a slow part in the book where I wanted to skip.

Abby Goodwin is your typical nice girl who does everything right, and there's her sister Maya who's the opposite of her. Maya's now accused of the murder of Jefferson and right after that you go on a roller coster. You won't know who to believe and you will not know who to trust. And let me say this, the ending will shock you completely! You will not believe what will happen and your mind won't even go there.

I loved the cover of this book and how it doesn't give away anything about the plot. It does make it seem mysterious, yet it captures the book.

Overall, if you're into mysteries/thrillers, this book is for you. It's the type of book that keeps you up all night to finish so you will know who was the person behind all of this.
