Sister Dear Book Club



Welcome to the Sister Dear book club! This is our space to discuss the five questions below, alongside author Hannah Mary McKinnon.

Follow along on social using the hashtag #SisterDearBookClub and tune in from 27th-31st July as we reveal the author’s insider answers every day over here and on the @Hodderbooks Twitter account. 


Question 1 : What do you think Eleanor was most terrified of? What, if anything, was Victoria afraid of?



Question 2: Was there a point you felt sorry for Eleanor?



Question 3: Which scene was the most pivotal in the story for you?




Question 4: Is turning into your mother inevitable?



Question 5: How do you think Gemma will grow up?








When Eleanor Hardwicke’s beloved father dies, her world is further shattered by the discovery of a gut-wrenching secret: the man she’s grieving isn’t her biological dad.


With her personal life spiraling, a desperate Eleanor seeks out the family she never knew she had, finding an infuriatingly enviable half-sister.


Perfectly perfect Victoria has everything Eleanor could ever dream of. Loving childhood, luxury home, devoted husband. And this gets Eleanor thinking – aren’t good sisters supposed to share?
