The Sister Pact (Paperback)
A suicide pact was supposed to keep them together, but a broken promise tore them apart. A powerful story of sisterhood, young adult depression, and love.
Allie is devastated when her older sister commits suicide—and it's not just because she misses her. Allie feels betrayed. The two made a pact that they'd always be together, in life and in death, but Leah broke her promise and Allie needs to know why.
Her divorced parents hover. Her friends try to support her. And Nick, sweet Nick, keeps calling and flirting. Their sympathy only intensifies her grief, her guilt.
But the more she clings to Leah, the more secrets surface. Allie's not sure which is more distressing: discovering the truth behind her sister's death or facing her new reality without her.
A great pick for:
- Fans of Kathleen Glasgow and Jodi Picoult
- Readers looking for young adult novels about depression, romance, sisterhood, and forgiveness
- Buyers of contemporary young adult
