Jess might look exactly like her twin sister Anna but they couldn’t be more different. Anna is outgoing, quick to smile, and always looking to make friends. Jess is an introvert who prefers to be alone with a good book. But that doesn’t stop them from being best friends. They love to spend time together and they never keep secrets from each other.
At least that’s what Jess thought before Anna died.
Found on the ground outside her bedroom window, everybody assumes Anna was sneaking out after curfew when she slipped and fell. Where was she going? Was she meeting a boy? And why would she keep it all a secret from Jess?
Everyone is sure it was an accident, but Jess can’t believe it. She’s sure Anna wouldn’t lie to her unless there was a good reason and she won’t stop until she gets the answers it seems like no one else wants to know. She’s going to solve this mystery no matter what. She owes it to her sister.
The Window is a sad story about the ways we grieve after a loved one dies, and some parts, especially the twins’ mother’s reactions, are hard to read. But it’s also a story of young romance and the bonds of family that even death can’t break.
