Review: What My Sister Knew by Nina Laurin

What My Sister Knew
by Nina Laurin

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Pages: 384
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  We're not just siblings; we're twins. We're supposed to be able to read each other's thoughts. Although Eli is a few minutes younger, he always seemed older, always one step ahead.

It turns out that Eli kept many secrets. And he told many lies. So although he was once seen as the golden child-while I stood by as the silent sister-his web of deception led to a guilty verdict for the arson that killed our parents.

Now his thirteen-year sentence has been served, and Eli is free. But we are still bound by a secret. Which is dangerous because he has nothing left to lose, and I have everything.

Kritters Thoughts:  A set of twins, a boy and a girl.  There are secrets old and new.  There are questions and maybe they will get answered.  

I loved this book.  I love when a book's purpose is to make me question if the narrator is reliable or not.  I wondered off and on if I thought that Andrew was "the good twin" and if she was not at fault for anything at all.  Of course, I will not divulge anything, but I loved how the whole twin part of the book went down.  

The other major part of the book in my opinion was the concept of your sins of your past still not being settled.  I loved how the secrets, the lies and the drama from the past kept coming up and nothing would get resolved until all of it came out into the open.  

I will say that I do read a lot of mystery thriller books and I probably predicted the ending a lot earlier than I wish I had.  I wish that it hadn't been as obvious where it was going to go, but I still appreciated the journey of the story.  

I liked this Nina Laurin book a bit more than her other, Girl Last Seen.  I will more than likely read her next one when it comes out!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
