Secrets, Lies and My Sister Kate by Belinda Hollyer
Families have all sorts of secrets - some big and some small. Twelve year old Mini guards her biggest secret carefully. No one knows her true name - it's just too awful to share! But there is another family secret that is tearing apart her big sister Kate. A secret that Mini can't seem to unravel. But, it's a secret that is so big that Kate is changing into someone Mini doesn't know and understand.
And then Kate simply disappears.
This is a story of the choices parents make and the way they play out for the children - not always in the way that they expected. This is also a story of the depth of sister-friendships and the bonds that are created between sisters. And - what it takes to maintain those bonds.
Mini is the one family member who really doesn't know what is happening - but she is also the one who has the potential to find her lost sister.
This is a quick and easy read and is in the Middle School Library.
