Bad Girls Don't Die review

What a weird, creepy book! Katie Alender has created a novel for young adults that will truly have you guessing from beginning to end. I didn't know who was good, who was bad, if there were ghosts, if these girls were just idea. It was nice to be kept guessing for once.

Bad Girls Don't Die introduces to Alexis and her younger sister Kasey. Alexis is a bit rebellious, really just wanting some attention from her emotionally and often physically absent mother. Kasey is a sweet, shy blue-eyed girl that suddenly starts changing to a mean, vindictive, and violent green-eyed girl. Alexis has no idea what's going on with her sister...or with herself for that matter. Is SHE crazy? Has something possessed Kasey or is it all in her head? Alexis has a lot of questions and not a whole lot of answers. And unfortunately, while waiting for answers, Kasey's strange and scary behavior continues to get worse and worse.

As you turn the pages, I can almost bet you are going to be saying "what in the WORLD is going on?!" And it's a good thing. Suspense-filled, this is a fun, yet creepy, book to read, with intriguing characters and a rather unique plot.

A nice choice for your YA shelves at the library.
