    higly recommended psychological thriller

    This is the story of two (half) sisters, Kitty and Alison. Alison a few years older and always the good girl , wants desperately to have the sister of her dreams. One who stands up for her, looks up to her and sue can do fun stuff with. Unfortunately, Kitty is not that kind of sister. She likes to drive Alison nuts, likes to ruin things for her. When Kitty and her best friend and blood sister Vanessa come up with a plan to make life miserable for Alison, something goes terribly wrong. It was a slow start for me, getting into the story. But once I got a few chapters in it was impossible to stop reading. It was painful to see how the story unfolds. The flashbacks to the time of the accident and the months leading up to it show a dysfunctional family and that it isn't always enough to be the good girl. Reading about Kitty's difficulties after the accident and how she is trapped in a body without the possibility to make herself understood, is frustrating and I wanted to yell to all the personnel in the group home that they have to listen, to watch, to see that Kitty is there, wanting to communicate. And I don't think that this picture we get of homes with disabled people is far from the truth, which makes it even more difficult to read. I think there is only one person in this story I don't have sympathy for. And this is Vanessa. I don't understand how a little girl can be so mean and manipulative. No, I don't have any warm feelings for Crispin either. He got what he deserved and I can understand how Alison did what she did. All the other characters I could understand why they acted certain ways. Children, even sisters, can have a rocky relationship. Parents can be in situations that aren't good for their children and hurt them along the way. Do you like reading psychological thriller, than this is the book I highly recommend adding on your tbr-list. I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Books (UK)!

    Really enjoyable

    Normally I read a lot of crime thrillers about police pursuing serial killers so this was chosen as a deliberate change of tempo. I found the narrative of the two sisters a very clever touch to show the unfolding series of events from different perspectives. Time and time again there were twists in the plot, lies told by the main protagonists and equally damaging omissions of truth that lead to a series of catastrophic events. These developments are always credible and when secrets are revealed, the reasons for deception are understandable to the reader never outlandish. The tone of the book is best summed up in the words of Sir Walter Scott "Oh what a complex web we weave when first we practice to deceive."
