The Last Child by John Hart
Johnny is 13 and has lost his twin sister. She's disappeared, kidnapped and killed probably, and his family has paid the consequences. His father left. His mother drinks too much and medicates herself. And Johnny is haunted by the feeling that he can still help her. So Johnny is on the hunt for her abuser, because there is always the chance she's still alive, right? With the help of a local cop, Johnny embarks on a remarkable chase and string of coincidences to solve the mysteries of his life. But real life doesn't always work out smoothly, and neither does Johnny's life.
I was up really late reading this one because I just had to know the ending. It's a nail-biter and I really was rooting for Johnny to be happy.
