The September Sisters by Jillian Cantor
Abby and her younger sister Becky were born two years and one day apart. Like many sisters they argue nearly all the time about many small issues. But one night Becky disappears. The police investigate and the family forms search parties but there is no sign of Becky. With her mother in deep depression, her father trying everything possible to find Becky, and her old friends ignoring her, Abby is completely alone. She finds a new friend in Tommy, the grandson of her next door neighbor who has moved to her town with problems of his own. This is a realistic story of Abby's life and her family as they cope with the unknown about her sister.
