Written in the form of a letter from Beatrice, the older, more substantial sister, to her younger, bohemian sibling, Tess, the narrative reveals within the first few pages that Tess has gone missing and is found dead. Bea and Tess, even with a big age difference and an ocean between them, were incredibly close, so when Bea receives the "phone call," she drops everything and races from New York City to London. Although Tess's death is ruled a suicide, Bea knows her sister would never kill herself. As Bea frantically tries to find the murderer, in the process losing pieces of herself, the reader is catapulted into the search. VERDICT Beautifully written with an unexpected twist at the end, this debut literary thriller was a best seller in Britain and a Richard and Judy Book Club Pick. Thriller fans will eagerly await Lupton's next book. [See Prepub Alert, 12/6/10.]-Marianne Fitzgerald, Annapolis, MD (c) Copyright 2011.

I enjoyed reading "Sister" very much and highly recommend it. Rosamund Lupton's writing style is refreshing and different. Her two centre characters, Beatrice (the narrator), and Tess (her missing sister)are enjoyable an intriguing. The plot is gripping and the ending an emotional experience to be treasured, with a deightful twist.
How different could sisters be? The two central characters of this book could not be more different until the disappearance and murder of the baby sister sets Bee (the older sister) on a course that leads down a lonely and dangerous track. I could not put this book down and days after completing it I am still comprehending and enjoying the narrative. As a avid reader who has read many many books, this is one like no other, written so very skilfully and in a manner that not only lets the author own the narrative but the reader too! Thank you Rosamund Lupton! Can't wait for your next one!
An excellent read, a definite page turner, written with extraordinary insight into the closeness of the bond between two sisters, one moment deeply moving and tear inducing, the next light and funny.

This was so over the top. I found Beatrice extremely annoying, continually talking to the dead sister, who was so idealised that she was just too perfect. And what was all the rubbish about not being able to tell her mother she was pregnant because she wasn't married, and that her mother wouldn't want the dead baby buried with her because they were Catholic. There was also a lot of moralising about students being though of as promiscuous, and all the drug nonsense - her little sister wouldn't touch drugs - stuff like that. This is a contemporary novel - it might be that I'm from Oz and this is an English book but it was so prissy and moralistic and unbelieveable - a bit like 'I smoked a joint once but didn't inhale' sort of nonsense. I wouldn't bother with this one.
