“In her debut novel, Kain writes bravely and beautifully, respecting the reader’s capacity to respond with openness and a raw understanding of the turns life may take and to hold judgment as nuanced characters discover the many facets of their own complex beings.” –Booklist (Starred Review)

“Fans of emotional powerhouses such as Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones (Little, Brown, 2002) and Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why (Penguin, 2007) will enjoy the novel’s insight into the complexities of sisterhood, adolescence, and the “good” and “bad” behavior therein.” –School Library Journal

“While having Sarah speak from beyond the grave gives this novel a touch of the supernatural, Kain keeps her story and everyone in it grounded in reality.  The author offers profound reflections on life, death, and the bonds of family, and as the suspense surrounding Sarah’s death intensifies, readers will find it hard to put this novel down.” —Publishers Weekly

“A haunting, dark and at times harshly beautiful exploration of the scars left by hurt and loss.” (Paranormal suspense. 14 & up) –Kirkus

“In the tradition of Jodi Picoult, Jamie Kain’s The Good Sister begins with pieces of a story that are brought together with increasing momentum and culminates into a poignant ending…Featuring an incredible depth of character development that reflects a deep understanding of the unique relationship between sisters, The Good Sister is a poignant read that will make you reach for the phone and check in on your sibling.” –Seattle PI review

“Rachel and Asha’s lives and loves make for fascinating reading as the mystery of what really happened to their sister Sarah slowly unravels and threatens to destroy them. I couldn’t put this book down.”

Jennifer Echols author of Dirty Little Secret and Such a Rush

“Haunting and compelling…THE GOOD SISTER had me hooked from page one.”

Allison Van Diepen, author of Snitch and Street Pharm

“The Good Sister is grand. It’s a deeply felt novel. Its narrators, the three sisters (all of whom are not only good but also beautiful), are so wonderful, I’m left believing in angels. Jamie Kain is a celestial storyteller, both brilliant and wise. The Good Sister breaks my heart every time I turn a page.”

Paul Griffin, author of Stay with Me and Burning Blue
