The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain
Riley MacPherson grew up thinking her family moved because her older sister committed suicide. After her father’s death Riley starts to sort through his belongings to discover that her sister committed suicide after being accused of murder. Then as she digs into her family’s story she begins to suspect that her sister is still alive and out there somewhere living under a new identity. Riley desperately wants to find her sister but is afraid that if she does she will put her sister at risk because there are people still looking for her and wanting her to stand trial.
From the beginning of the book you know that Lisa (now Jade) is alive and fled to California. You read about the life she begins under her new identity while twenty-three years later Riley starts to sort her father’s things. You’d think there wouldn’t be a lot more secrets to be revealed but there are plenty! Riley learns a lot more than she bargained for about her family as she starts the journey to find Lisa.
Suspenseful and hard to put down, this is a great summer read.
