From the author of How to Say Goodbye in Robot, the story of a fractured family and three sisters' secrets

The Sullivan sisters have a big problem. On Christmas Day their rich and imperious grandmother gathers the family and announces that she will soon die...and has cut the entire family out of her will. Since she is the source of almost all their income, this means they will soon be penniless.

Someone in the family has offended her deeply. If that person comes forward with a confession of her (or his) crime, submitted in writing to her lawyer by New Year's Day, she will reinstate the family in her will. Or at least consider it.

And so the confessions begin....

Some involve love.
Some involve hate.
Some involve life.
Some involve death.

No secret is too big or too small for the Sullivans, or for author Natalie Standiford, in this smart and funny novel about the confessions that can bring families together...or tear them apart.

Natalie Standiford is the author of How to Say Goodbye in Robot and Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters. She is originally from Maryland, but now lives in New York City and plays in the all-YA-author band Tiger Beat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time or money...... I was expecting this book to be serious instead it consisted of events and characters that would never occur in real life. The story was very stupid and just dragged on the only reason i continued was because i wanted to know the ending but....the ending was stupid and had nothing to with the rest of the book you could read the first chapter and then the last and they would make a great short story the was no need for the rest of the book the sisters are very weird and people like them probably wouldn't exsist in real life they spend the book confessing to the grandmother there faults because she has cut them out of her will and says if she does not get the right confession she(who is dying of cancer) will leave them nothing in the end the grandmother proclaims that it was there little brothers confession (there little brother was hardly mentioned in the story) that was the one she wanted sha also said the doctors told her that she was invincible/immortal so the cancer wounldn't hurt her and making the time they spent on there confessions wasted ........this book was not fantasy why have immortality in it....... secondly i felt stupid for reading this book it had major plot issues and the author made the book even stupider by adding jokes like immortality and other stuff. All in all i would not reccomend this to anyone veryy stupid and a joke don't waste your money....

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters*"This book has a long shelf life ahead of it, and can be easily offered to any teen as an excellent read." -School Library Journal, starred review"[H]umor abounds in the inner workings of this interesting and unusual family." -Kirkus Reviews"Standiford makes reading about Baltimore high society and the flawed, pampered, but likable Sullivans feel like a wickedly guilty pleasure.... Readers will wish that more family members had confessions to make." -Publishers Weekly"[A] sweet and charming new novel." -Voice of Youth Advocates
