The Sister Pact
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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 secrets surface. Allie's not sure which is more distressing: discovering the truth behind her sister's death or facing her new reality without her.

The Sister Pact by Stacie Ramey

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Sister Pact “Small red pills. Bright pink Benadyls. Yellow Coricidins. Followed by bottles of cough syrups.”

This was quite an emotional story about a girl whose sister had committed suicide.

Allie was quite a messed up girl, she obviously had issues about her sister’s suicide, but she also had issues with pills and cough medicine, and seemed to always turn to medication whenever there was something happening in her life that she couldn’t deal with.

The storyline in this followed Allie in the time after her sister’s death, and dealt with drug abuse and addiction as well as Allie’s pain over losing her sister. There was a little bit of romance, and a bit of mystery over why the girls had formed a suicide pact in the first place.

The ending to this was okay, and it did seem like Allie was on the road to recovery.

6.5 out of 10
