Genre: Suspense, Mystery
Alice: Beautiful, kind, manipulative, liar.
Clare: Intelligent, loyal, paranoid, jealous.
Clare thinks Alice is a manipulative liar who is trying to steal her life.
Alice thinks Claire is jealous of her long-lost return and place in their family.
One of them is telling the truth. The other is a maniac. Two sisters. One truth.
Sister, Sister is about Clare Tennison who lived her whole life remembering her little sister, Alice. Her sister didn’t die or went missing for good. She was just taken by their father and brought to America and never heard of since.
Until one day, they received a letter from Alice and things were never the same after that. Especially when she finally came to England to visit.
When Alice finally arrived, I thought could this be the real Alice? Would she cause trouble to the family and marriage of Clare and Luke? Or maybe she will be this one manipulative psychopathic bitch that will drive Clare into insanity?
I had so many questions forming already on the first few chapters. I also started to even question the true intentions of Leonard Carr and Tom Eggar. Because Leonard seems to be too keen in pushing Clare to be the best in their field. While Tom, the fact that she was Clare’s ex in college, seems to be too caring and always there when she’s going nuts.
But of course, everything will be answered when you read the book.
The thing that I hate about the story is how Alice’s sudden departure took over Clare’s life. She has a successful career and a loving family and yet, she still grieves every year on Alice’s birth month. I understand that she is family but sometimes we need to let go in order to move forward. I believe the reason behind this is that she still lives with her Mum. Marion is the one who can’t move on.
Anyways, this is a good read. It will really make you upset and angry with all that is going on.
