A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR

NAMED A BEST BOOK OF 2020 BY NPR

ONE OF THE TOP TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR-- PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR--VULTURE

"Daisy Johnson is the demon offspring of Shirley Jackson and Stephen King." --The Observer

"Builds a gothic plot to an artful and shocking climax."--The New York Times

"Ends with a magnificent twist." --The Boston Globe

From a Booker Prize finalist and international literary star: a blazing portrait of one darkly riveting sibling relationship, from the inside out.

One of her generation's most intriguing authors (Entertainment Weekly), Daisy Johnson is the youngest writer to have been short-listed for the Man Booker Prize. Now she returns with Sisters, a haunting story about two sisters caught in a powerful emotional web and wrestling to understand where one ends and the other begins.

Born just ten months apart, July and September are thick as thieves, never needing anyone but each other. Now, following a case of school bullying, the teens have moved away with their single mother to a long-abandoned family home near the shore. In their new, isolated life, July finds that the deep bond she has always shared with September is shifting in ways she cannot entirely understand. A creeping sense of dread and unease descends inside the house. Meanwhile, outside, the sisters push boundaries of behavior--until a series of shocking encounters tests the limits of their shared experience, and forces shocking revelations about the girls' past and future.

Written with radically inventive language and imagery by an author whose work has been described as entrancing (The New Yorker), a force of nature (The New York Times Book Review), and weird and wild and wonderfully unsettling (Celeste Ng), Sisters is a one-two punch of wild fury and heartache--a taut, powerful, and deeply moving account of sibling love and what happens when two sisters must face each other's darkest impulses.
