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?

"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."

--Starred Review, School Library Journal


"let me tell you, The Deadly Sister was so creepily good, I would rather you read it yourself ... Eliot Schrefer is the author of another thrillingly creepy book–and serious page-turner–The School for Dangerous Girls.  The Deadly Sister is a great follow-up and a perfect read-alike."



"The Deadly Sister is a perfect summer thriller."
