Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender
REVIEW BY MARYANNE (Guest Teen Blogger)
A "social outcast," Alexis, begins to experience strange occurrences with her thirteen-year-old sister, Kasey. Kasey has always had a love for dolls, while Alexis has become and amateur photographer. However, Kasey's love has become obsessive, and with Kasey's sudden "black outs," boiling water on the unlit stove, and out of wack air conditioning units, things are becoming borderline creepy within their home.
When this book was dropped into my lap, I was unsure about what I'd find. The gorgeous cover drew me in, and I began reading it whenever I had time. This book never left my hands if I could help it. Alexis, witty and sarcastic, had me so in tuned to the story. When the book came to a funny part, I giggled. When it became intense, I couldn't put it down. I loved that the romance was subtle, which was refreshing. The book never strays from the plot. The only thing I didn't like about Bad Girls Don't Die are the cliche, stereotypical, "popular" types that always hate the main character or want on her to-be boyfriend. Overall, I think I'd like books to fall in my lap more often. This was definitely a pleasant surprise!
