Unpaid Annotation
A fascinating sister-turned-sleuth suspense story. Kelly's younger sister, Hannah, had always been strong-willed, but things take a sudden turn for the worse after Hannah prepares a blood project for the school science fair. Trouble begins at home between Hannah, her father and her stepmother, but Kelly soon begins to hear frightening rumors around town and at school about her sister's rebellious activities.
