Allie is in a downward spiral. She’s got to find a way to cope now that her older sister Leah is dead. Leah was perfect, popular, sassy, and loving.
But then she killed herself.
Allie tries to self-medicate with pills, weed, cough syrup, promiscuity — anything she can get her hands on — so that she doesn’t feel the pain, the questioning: Why didn’t Leah honor their pact? They were supposed to go together.
The Sister Pact is a great YA novel that shows the true feelings and thoughts of depression and the aftermath of suicide. Allie is also struggling with divorcing and bickering parents, an ex-boyfriend, a new love interest, and one of the most challenging things she’s ever faced: losing her art, not being able to find her colors.
Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion.
