After being accused and acquitted in the death of his girlfriend, seventeen-year-old David is sent to live with his aunt, uncle, and young cousin to avoid the media frenzy. But all is not well at his relatives? house. His aunt and uncle are not speaking, and twelve-year-old Lily seems intent on making David?s life a torment. And then there?s the issue of his older cousin Kathy?s mysterious death some years back. As things grow more and more tense, David starts to wonder?is there something else that his family is trying to hide from?
  • Firstly I want to mention this book is a page turner and very difficult to put down. Now with that being said, I loved the suspense of this book. David was acquitted of murder of his girlfriend Emily the year before. His parents have moved him to his aunt and uncle's house to live with them to finish out his senior year in high school. He's not really welcomed when he arrives and his little cousin, Lilly is very upset he's invading. Vic and Julia are very distant from each other so much so, they use Lilly as the go-between in all conversations. Lilly herself is more than a bit disturbing for an 11 year old. She asks things of David like, `how did it feel', etc etc.

    David will make a friend at his new school too, Frank, a skinhead. I think he adds just the right thing to the story. David needed a nonjudgmental friend who's an outcast himself. At the end they will become the best of friends. However, I would have liked to learn more about Frank.

    *****Spoilers below*****

    As the conclusion to the story moves closer to the end David learns that Lilly is the killer of her older sister that everyone thought committed suicide because it's just not possible a 7 year old child (at the time) could do something like that. What annoyed me most about this book is the fact that it's never really said what David did to Emily. I think he beat her to death in a rage, but it's unanswered. Also, it annoys me that Lilly is such a demon and yet it feels as though you are supposed to feel sorry for her because she's a child. From the start I did not like Lilly; I did like David, just wish more was explained about the murder he committed. David's aunt Julia is a witch, she spends most the book being nasty or very cold to David. Also, I almost had to laugh out loud at how Julia and Vic were completely blind to the fact that their precious little girl was a monster and how they felt it was alright to use her against each other and relay messages. How childish adults can be. And how blind. I can also say at no point did I ever feel sorry for either David or Lilly, I just preferred David to Lilly.

    All in all, this was a great book and I look forward to reading more from this author.

  • While I felt that this book was well written, the plot moved very slow and at times I felt like skipping to the end to find out what really happened. I think the character development was good but if you want a page turner, I highly recommend Please Listen by Carrie Vanlandingham. This book had me wanting to run home and check on my kids and students. I finished it in one night and still can't beleive what I read.

  • I knew when I started the first chapter how it would end. Like the title of my review says predictable. I kept reading only because I paid for the book. Sometimes the wording was awkward. For instance in one place it said that I put on the lights. How exactly do you put lights on? Another is when he talks about his dresser but it's a bedroom dresser. Is there another kind? I had to look to see when this book was written because the slang was out of date. No one says the net anymore referring to the internet. Also Tara Lipinski as a favorite ice skater? Even when this book was written in 2009 she had been retired for several years. I'm supposed to believe that an 11 year old girl knows who she is and that Lipinski is her favorite ice skater? Very doubtful.

  • This is a great book. I couldn't stop reading it. The Killer's Cousin is truly amazing and one of my favorite books.

  • This was an invaluable tool for struggling readers, they were able to keep up with students reader the print version.

  • Really good book. Great characters and really interesting story line. Bought it for myself then for my nephew and really enjoyed it.

  • This book was a great addition to my bookshelf. I only read it because my daughter was reading it for school and I am glad.

  • Though I’m not much of a reader, I did enjoy reading this fiction/mystery book about a teenage boy experiencing some strange things. Would you ever imagine your own cousin murdering their sister? David did and the worst part is… well I’ll let you guys figure that out yourself. David’s parents did not want him anymore, ever since he was acquitted for the murder of his girlfriend. They sent him to his Aunt (Julia) and Uncle (Vic) but that wasn’t a very good idea. The truth of the innocent little girl Lily was bound to come out sooner or later, she was stubborn and did not want to socialize with anyone. Lilys sister Kathy had committed suicide, or at least that’s what everyone believes.

    Throughout the book many incidents happen, and it is told in David's voice. His sentences flow smoothly, and he tends to talk on a personal level about his life at the moment; He hears voices in the attic, and sees shadows. David believes it is Kathy whispering “Help Lily,” even though no one else hears anything. I liked Nancy Werlin’s writing style but at certain points in the story I was kind of lost. For example, Lily didn’t like David but there was no reason not to. I think explaining people's feelings needed to be clarified. I mean don’t get me wrong overall the book was fun, and mysteries are my favorite. The cover of the book is eye catching, but the text is even better.

    I didn’t quite react to this book like I thought I would, most of the time other books that I read are “okay” but this one left me in awe; I admire the structure of the text, and feel like I go into a different world as I’m reading. This book made me think of what is going on in people's everyday life, like they say “you can’t judge a book by its cover.” David took us on a journey through one the most life changing times in his life.

    The theme of this book has to do with forgiveness and strength; In the end everything turned out well but it didn’t just happen, a lot was put into fixing things. David tries not to dig into his feelings, he hides everything inside of himself, but all the secrets come out eventually.

    Overall, I suggest reading this interesting, and admirable book; Just take a few minutes of your time everyday to read and few pages… and be prepared for a huge plot twist.
