Kurzbeschreibung

A touching coming-of-age novel featuring a protagonist who's the kind of girl every woman wishes she'd had as a best friend growing up Billie Weinstein sees things most people don't see. Her sister, Cassie, has always been her touchstone, the person she turns to for advice and guidance, the person whose opinion means the most to her. But ever since Cassie left for college, she's seemed differentwithdrawn, obsessed with studying, and she barely eats. Billie can't talk to her parents about it; they act as if nothing is wrong, refusing to see the changes in their older daughter. Now Billie has become Cassie's confidante, the only one Cassie trusts enough to tell the truth to, and Billie is suddenly thrust into an unfamiliarand disturbingrole; one that drives her to make choices that will forever change the way she looks at the world. A poignant story of self-discovery, My Sister's Bones explores the shifting landscape of family, friendship, and love through the eyes of a young girl possessed of a wisdom far beyond her years. In Billie Weinstein we meet a character as funny, vivid, and endearing as any in recent memory, and watch her transformation as she achieves freedom from the seemingly unbreakable web of family ties.
