A suicide pact was supposed to keep them together, but a broken promise tore them apart
Allie is devastated when her older sister commits suicide–and not just because she misses her. Allie feels betrayed. The two made a pact that they’d always be together, in life, and in death, but Leah broke her promise and Allie needs to know why.
Her parents hover. Her friends try to support her. And Nick, sweet Nick, keeps calling and flirting. Their sympathy only intensifies her grief.
But the more she clings to Leah, the more secretes surface. Allie’s not sure which is more distressing: discovering the truth behind her sister’s death or facing her new reality without her.
This is one of those reviews that I hate writing. I don’t have very many nice things to say. The story primarily revolves around Allie as she goes into a downward spiral after her twin sister commits suicide. I had a really hard time connecting in any way to Allie. I felt like her character was just missing something. Throughout much of the book I was just annoyed with her and I found myself not really caring how her story ended. I didn’t really like any of the supporting characters either. They just sort of fell flat for me.
The entire plot ended up being mediocre. It was lackluster and forgettable. It took me almost two weeks to get through it and I only finished it because it was a NetGalley. I won’t tell you not to read The Sister Pact. I can tell tell you that I did not enjoy it. As always I recommend that you make this decision for yourself.
