Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gripping thriller This book is told in alternating timelines – parts are told 15 years before the fire, parts are told in the present 15 years after the fire. Bit by bit we get glimpses of what happened and get to piece the puzzle together to get a clear understanding of what happened. What My Sister Knew starts off with Addie after a car crash. She wakes up in her car and starts to look for help, and wakes up again later in a hospital with no memory of what happened. Eventually she is released from the hospital to go back home with her adoptive mother, since her parents have died years ago in a house fire that was started by her brother Eli. Addie is watching TV one day, and sees that her brother Eli is suspected of murder. Addie is contacted by the police, as the police think that Addie can help them find her brother Eli. What unfolds is a shocking tale of twists and turns that you will not see coming, and nothing is what it seems. Will Addie be able to help the police find her brother? Is her brother Eli innocent? A great book that will have you guessing to the end, and will shock you with all the secrets and lies. A must read!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good thriller I enjoyed this thriller, it captured my attention enough to read through it in 2 days. It had a few good twists, but the final one you could see coming. I would recommend this book if you like this genre! I wasn't disappointed.
