Bad bad bad bad girls....

Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender

Alexis is not what you would call popular. Pink haired and with quite a few outspoken acts of protest, she doesn’t quite fit in with any group at her high school – even the outcasts.

Kasey, Alexis’ little sister is a bit too old to be playing with the dolls she obsessively collects. As strange as that may be, things are about to get even more out there.

Doors open and close without anyone near them. A pot of water boils on the stove – while the burner is off. An air conditioner goes into overdrive, making it cold enough to see one’s breath – but the air conditioner is turned off.

And Kasey is acting, well, a bit crazy.

Can Alexis figure out what is causing her little sister act this way…before someone gets killed?

I. Loved. This. Book. Seriously. Could not put it down. I started reading it at lunch on Saturday and finished it by Sunday afternoon. If I didn’t have work and a need to eat and sleep, I think I would have finished it sooner!

Written in first person (from Alexis’ view), adds to the mystery of the story. You are only getting her perspective, which also adds to the fear she experiences when she realizes that her sister is the cause of the mayhem.

This is a great novel by a debut author, and one that I am highly recommending. Go check it out now!
