Review: Bad Girls Don't Die

Bad Girls Don't Die

By: Katie Alender

My Grade: A

Pages: 346

Alexis thought she led a typically dysfunctional high school existence. Dysfunctional like her parents’ marriage; her doll-crazy thirteen-year-old sister, Kasey; and even her own anti-social, anti-cheerleader attitude.

When a family fight results in some tearful sisterly bonding, Alexis realizes that her life is creeping from dysfunction into danger. Kasey is acting stranger than ever: her blue eyes go green sometimes; she uses old-fashioned language; and she even loses track of chunks of time, claiming to know nothing about her strange behavior. Their old house is changing, too. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner turns the house cold enough to see their breath in.

Alexis wants to think that it’s all in her head, but soon, what she liked to think of as silly parlor tricks are becoming life-threatening–to her, her family, and to her budding relationship with the student council VP. Alexis knows she’s the only person who can stop Kasey — but what if that green-eyed girl isn’t even Kasey anymore?

My Opinion:

This book was an easy read. Its full of suspense and keeps you reading until the end. It's almost creepy at some points but it's the kind of creepy that keeps your attention. If you believe in the whole paronormal thing this really is a book for you. The storyline was awesome, there was some romance to the book and the ending was almost expected but still good.

Sounds like a good book! I'm usually interested in any story with paranormal events.
