    Sister by Rosamund Lupton
    This book is a mystery/thriller. Two sisters, Beatrice and Tess, have always been close after living through the trauma of losing their brother to cystic fibrosis when they were young and then their father walking out on the family soon after. As the story begins, a very pregnant Tess is missing, and Bea flies from the U.S. to London to help look for her. When Tess's body is found in a filthy park bathroom, the police believe she committed suicide, but Bea refuses to go along with that theory and continues with her own investigation right up to the shocking conclusion. I did find this book somewhat difficult to read. The narrator jumped back and forth between time periods, and I couldn't always tell immediately which time period she was speaking of. Also, even considering that her sister has just died, Beatrice has some fairly abrupt personality changes that didn't ring true. The author did do an excellent job of setting the scene and describing the surroundings for a real "you are there" feel to the book.
