“From the opening sentence of Elizabeth Flock’s exceptional new novel, I was at its tender mercies. I kept asking myself, How did she accomplish this storytelling feat? What Happened To My Sister is heart-wrenching and funny in unexpected ways, beautifully told and so satisfying. These memorable, lovable characters jumped off the page and have lodged themselves in my heart.”

–Elinor Lipman, New York Times bestselling author of The Inn At Lake Devine and Then She Found Me 

“Elizabeth Flock has created a young heroine who will win your heart. Caroline Parker is fierce, bright, and endlessly lovable. Amid this well-plotted mystery, there’s a story of great hope, survival, and resilience.”

– Julianna Baggott, bestselling author of Girl Talk and Which Brings Me To You

“Haunting, harrowing, and exquisitely told, Flock’s brilliant, bold novel is all about imagination, grief, and one stunning young narrator’s struggle to transcend an unimaginable past in order to carve out a future. Absolutely unforgettable.”

– Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You

“[This book] is a gripping read that is at once heartbreaking and heartwarming. Flock masterfully combines a deeply affecting family drama with relentless suspense. You’ll find yourself reading late into the night to find out what life has in store for the indomitable Carrie Parker.”

– Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence

“[Elizabeth] Flock conjures the world of young Carrie with the pathos and heartbreak of Mary Karr’s Liar’s Club.  You will not put it down.”

– Antoinette van Heugten, USA Today bestselling author of Saving Max

“Carrie Parker is one of the toughest, scrappiest, most endearing child protagonists I’ve ever encountered in a novel. I fell in love with her immediately, and also with the rest of this wonderful cast of survivors—compelling characters the world has kicked hard, but who rise up and become stronger at those broken places. I was rooting for every one of them and haven’t stopped thinking of them since.”

– Katrina Kittle, author of The Kindness of Strangers and The Blessings of the Animals

What Happened to My Sister picks up a few [hours] after Me & Emma ends, and is another page-turner. I loved returning to these characters and finally finding out “what happened next”! I cannot recommend this pair of books enough, they are both wonderful summer reads.”

— Stacey Ballis, bestselling author of Good Enough To Eat and Off The Menu

“I should have been writing or doing research…but instead I kept reading this book. I couldn’t put it down I loved it so much. [What Happened To My Sister] tugged at me and wouldn’t let me go – not while I was reading it and not once I was done.”

— MJ Rose, bestselling author of The Halo Effect and The Book of Lost Fragrances
