The Deadly Sister by Eliot Schrefer

From the author of The School for Dangerous Girls, a suspenseful stunner about loyalty, sibling rivalry, and murder.

Abby Goodwin is sure her sister Maya isn't a murderer. But her parents don't agree. Her friends don't agree. And the cops definitely don't agree. Maya is a drop-out, a stoner, a girl who's obsessed with her tutor, Jefferson Andrews...until he ends up dead. Maya runs away, and leaves Abby following the trail of clues. Each piece of evidence points to Maya, but it also appears that Jefferson had secrets of his own. And enemies. Like his brother, who Abby becomes involved with...until he falls under suspicion.
Is Abby getting closer to finding the true murderer? Or is someone leading her down a twisted false path?

Abby has always been the perfect older sister. She has protected Maya, been her alibi on countless occasions, and remained positive when everyone else was ready to give up. Now, something has happened, and Abby may not have the power to save her little sister this time. While out for a late night run, Abby stumbles across the body of Jefferson Andrews, the most popular guy in high school. As she tries to wrap her head around the gruesome scene before her, she notices something familiar sticking out of the mud. It is Maya's phone. Yes, Abby had mentioned that Jefferson was going to be meeting up with some girl named Caitlin, but she was just trying to prepare Maya for the fact that she was simply his latest conquest in a long line of "love em and leave em" relationships. How could she have predicted that Maya would follow him and ... she can hardly imagine it ... kill him? From the moment Abby discovers the cell phone, she finds herself in a desperate race to cover for Maya. Her younger sister's life has been off track for years now. Through their parents' divorce and reconciliation, Maya has been causing nothing but trouble. Her multiple piercings, refusal to go to school, experimentation with drugs, and her week-long disappearances have frustrated and worried her parents until they have finally given up. But now that Maya may be involved in a situation that could jeopardize her freedom and perhaps her life, Abby can't just sit back and do nothing. What follows is a journey full of enough plot twists and turns to keep readers' heads spinning. Abby is pulled in countless directions as she attempts to protect Maya, please her parents, and persuade the police investigators that her sister is innocent. Is Maya the killer? Could it be the victim's own brother or some other jealous ex-girlfriend? Author Eliot Schrefer keeps his readers guessing right up to the end. THE DEADLY SISTER is a perfect summer thriller.

This is not a book i thought i would ever have intrest in. I ended up liking it a lot. Though just to warn you, there is a serious plot twist at the end!

I gave The Deadly Sister a 22/24. The length is perfect for junior high ages and is good for kids maybe a year younger. The dialogue is one of my favorite parts because there wasn't too much or too less dialogue. It doesn't confuse you either. The ending is great because it doesn't end in the middle of the sentence and doesn't leave you hanging. The action is phenomenal, adventurous, and cool. The detail really helps me understand the story too. The title was weird because I don't think it goes with the story at all.
