My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbalestier
Publish date: November 15, 2016
Publisher: Soho Teen


 The premise of this book promises for a disturbing psychological thriller. It reminds me a lot of the Jasper Dent series by Barry Lyga except for the ultra-creepy father we have a ten year old sister. If you haven't read the Jasper Dent series, I highly recommend it though it gave me really weird dreams while reading it. I'm hoping for a similar reaction with this one. 

What if the most terrifying person you know is your ten-year-old sister?
Seventeen-year-old Aussie Che Taylor loves his younger sister, Rosa. But he’s also certain that she’s a diagnosable psychopath—clinically, threateningly, dangerously. Recently Rosa has been making trouble, hurting things. Che is the only one who knows; he’s the only one his sister trusts. Rosa is smart, talented, pretty, and very good at hiding what she is and the violence she’s capable of.

Their parents, whose business takes the family from place to place, brush off the warning signs as Rosa’s “acting out.” Now that they have moved again—from Bangkok to New York City—their new hometown provides far too many opportunities for Rosa to play her increasingly complex and disturbing games. Alone, Che must balance his desire to protect Rosa from the world with the desperate need to protect the world from her.
