My Sister was a thrilling and suspenseful read from beginning to end. It maintained tension and intrigue whilst also looking at the bond between sisters and the aftermath of a life-changing event.
The characters had great depth and were continually developed throughout the novel. I was instantly suspicious of Elle. Irini is hesitant to see her again after managing to avoid her for six years and the reader is gradually told why through flashback chapters.
Since Irini knew nothing of why she was given away, I felt as though I was with her on her journey to find answers to questions which had affected her whole life. I felt her emotions with her and her frustration as the truth remained elusive and always just beyond her grasp. In each chapter, Adams feeds through tidbits of information, revealing more and more about the Harringford family's past whilst still keeping the information tantalisingly out of reach. This kept the pages turning as I desperately wanted to know the dark secret and what had really gone on inside the Mam Tor household all those years ago. I got so into reading that I accidentally broke the spine, which is something I never do!
There were plenty of small twists throughout, leading up to a massive twist at the end which I wouldn't have predicted at all. The ending was satisfying for me and I felt it wrapped up the book well.
Overall, I'd give My Sister five out of five! It was a suspenseful and engrossing read which I'd definitely recommend picking up.
