The Wrong Sister

Critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Caroline Leavitt explores the family ties that bind—and garrote—in two haunting stories. In “The Wrong Sister,” a younger sister yearns to be like her elder one, right down to cozying up to her boyfriend, with startling results. In “The Last Vacation,” a family finds itself imploding during a sunny Cape Cod vacation, and nothing will ever be the same. Moody, funny, and full of insights about what makes a family.
