Our Sister, Again

(4 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Little Tiger Press

It’s three years since Isla’s older sister Flora died. Isla and her family would do anything to have Flora back, so when they’re offered the chance to participate in a top-secret trial which recreates loved ones as fully lifelike AI robots, they jump at the opportunity.

It’s amazing to have Flora home again – she seems exactly the same as the sister Isla remembers, except she has a charging port on the back of her neck, her body will never age, and she will never get sick. But what will it really mean to have Flora back? Can things really go back to how they were before? And what will it mean for the small island community where they live? Everyone had to promise to keep ‘Project Homecoming’ and Flora a secret, but when Flora starts getting threatening messages it’s clear that someone on the island is very unhappy about her being there, and it’s up to Isla to find out who, and why.

Exploring a number of ethical questions, Our Sister, Again is simultaneously an intriguing mystery and a moving story of grief, family bonds, and what it means to be human.
