Publisher's Summary

Sally O'Malley made a promise to her daddy before he died. She swore she'd look after her sister, Troo. Keep her safe. But like her Granny always said, actions speak louder than words. And Sally would have to agree with her. Because during the summer of 1959, the girls' mother is hospitalized, their stepfather has abandoned them for a six pack, and their big sister, Nell, who was left strict instructions to take care of them, is too busy making out with her boyfriend to notice that Sally and Troo are on the loose. And so is a murderer and molester. Highly imaginative Sally is pretty sure of two things. Who the killer is. And that she's next on his list. If nobody will believe her, she has no choice but to protect herself and Troo as best she can, relying on her own courage and the kindness of her neighbors.

Nice little tennage read

I was disappointed that the reviews made this sound like a mature person's read. Okay story, mostly written simply and for young adults

A good, but sometimes rambling story

Would you try another book from Lesley Kagen and/or Lesley Kagen?

Probably not - althoug the story was good, the many side detours and made this a hard listen.

Would you recommend Whistling in the Dark to your friends? Why or why not?

It depends. We discussed this book in bookclub yesterday and the response was that half really liked it and the other half thought it was slow

Do you think Whistling in the Dark needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, the book tied up everything very nicely.
