Get excited for this bestseller to hit the shelves across the pond.


“I remember vividly the Sunday I said I was going to write a novel,” says bestselling author Rosamund Lupton. “There was a story I wanted to tell. I wasn’t sure yet how the plot would work, but I knew that it would be about two ­sisters. I had already imagined the older sister — starchy, uptight — and the phone call she gets in the ­middle of Sunday lunch saying that her younger sister — scruffy, an art student — had gone ­missing.”

We’re thrilled to share this page-turning, powerful novel with you! A thrilling story of fierce love between siblings, Sister is a suspenseful and accomplished debut with a stunning twist. Dip into the excerpt below and you’ll see why Sister became an instant bestseller in the U.K. “The first time I saw my name next to Stieg Larsson,” Rosamund Lupton recalls, “I laughed. It was just so incredible.”
