The September Sisters is a wonderful first book by Jillian Cantor. If you don't, you're just really cold-hearted and have no feeling. They just scream right off the page. That's the one amazing thing about this book - the feelings. The other amazing thing about this book is how well Jillian Cantor got into Abby's head. Ms. Cantor did a clever job at crafting the opening scene, because I was hooked from the very first page. The main character, Abby, was really well-written.

Of the dozen or so books I bought at last year's Festival of Books in Tucson, this is the only one I finished. The others were put away after the first few chapters. As a writer and editor, I know from personal experience how challenging it is to sustain the pace and keep the reader engaged throughout the length of a novel. The narrative arc and pacing of this book never flagged. I was engaged and interested from start to finish. In spite of never having children or a sister, I cared about Abigail and was cheering for her. Ms Cantor has a deft touch when dealing with the delicate subjects of first love, loss/grief, and the impact on a family from the stress of losing a child. I didn't want this one to end, but was satisfied with the way that it did finally end, leaving a sweet regret that I won't be spending more time with Abigail and her friends.

Abigail and Becky are your average sisters - fighting all the time about the little things in life. One morning when it's discovered that Becky's missing; Abby doesn't realize just how much her life has changed - without her sister, her mom falls apart, the neighbors start whispering about their family, and Abby's best friend drops her. She has no friends at school and no one to confide in. Abby desperately wishes for comfort, but her father is trying to track down clues to his daughter's disappearance while her mother shuts down and hides in her room. Abby doesn't know how to help her family get over this trauma. She tries asking questions and pretending she's grown-up enough to hear the truths, but really, she just needs someone to pay attention to her. When her new baby-sitter's grandson moves in, they start to connect. He's getting over his own family drama. With him, Abby can save stories about Becky without judgment. She also confides in Tommy about her family now vs her family before. Can she make sense of life without her sister?

Caution: Read this one with tissues.

As a sister, this book was realistically painful. My sister and I fought constantly for several years before we came BFFs again. I can understand the torment of Abby wondering where her sister is and if she's coming home. Not knowing what's happening is the scariest part of the journey. Time passes, but it doesn't feel real with the other part of you missing. This book is a a very powerful and emotional read. Fans of Lurlene McDaniel and teens looking for a tear-jerker will love this book.

Abigail and Becky are exactly two years and a day apart, and are often referred as the September Sisters by their mother. However, despite their close proximity of age, they constantly squabble with one another and compete for their parents' attention.

But after the sudden disappearance of Becky, Abby's whole life changes. Her mom grows more and more distant and her dad becomes overbearing and obsessed with the investigation. Abby is officially no longer an ignorant child, as she desperately tries to keep her family together.

Abby has no one to confide in until Tommy moves in next door. She soon finds herself expressing all of her emotions, pain, guilt, and resentment towards Becky and her disappearance to him. Along the way, Abigail also falls in love with him, even when everything in her world is less than perfect.

THE SEPTEMBER SISTERS, Jillian Cantor's debut novel, was truly unforgettable, with the perfect mixture of realism, great character development, and plot. Ms. Cantor did a clever job at crafting the opening scene, because I was hooked from the very first page.

The main character, Abby, was really well-written. All of her emotions were portrayed effectively and realistically, making it easy to sympathize with her. But, most importantly, she was a strong heroine, even given her tragic situation. One of the things that I thought was especially memorable were the contrasting emotions Abby endured throughout the book. At one point she was frustrated and even jealous of how much attention her sister received, even after she disappeared.

Her relationship with Tommy was a perfect depiction of first love and its exploring nature. It was interesting to see how their relationship developed, because when they initially met they were hesitant to become friends since they were forced to talk during lunch.

This one is definitely recommended and worth adding to your wish list.
