Rating: 5/5


Synopsis:  Sam is seventeen, starving herself and longing for oblivion. Her sister, Jena, is mentally scarred and desperate to remember. Between them, they share secrets too terrible to recall.

Eighteen months earlier, Sam was still full of hope: hope that she could piece together Jena’s fragmented memory after the vicious attack that changed their family forever. But digging into the past unearthed long-hidden lies and betrayals, and left Sam feeling helpless and alone in a world designed to deceive her.

Now, in a last bid to save her from self-imposed shutdown, Sam’s therapist is helping her confront her memories. But the road to recovery is a dangerous one. Because Sam has not only been lying to her doctors: she’s been hiding dark secrets from herself.


Review:   

This book surpassed all of my expectations!

The final twist is so well done that it managed to catch me off guard and when it all came crashing down, I suddenly realised that I wasn’t quite prepared for the whole truth. The subjects treated in this book are all pretty controversial which gives a dark and twisted tone to the well-executed plot.

This book will break your heart while taking you on a nerve-racking-roller-coaster where you’ll get to meet realistic characters with multiple layers to them, some of which are quite disturbing.

“My Sister and Other Liars” is absolutely and utterly brilliant and I would highly recommend you go grab a copy and get ready for a bloody good ride!

I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and the author for sending me a digital copy of this book.
