Bad Girls Don't Die by: Katie Alender

Summary: Alexis thought she led a typically dysfunctional high school existence. Dysfunctional like her parents' marriage; her doll-crazy twelve-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 class president. Alexis knows she's the only person who can stop Kasey -- but what if that green-eyed girl isn't even Kasey anymore?

Review: Bad Girls Don't Die was a kick ass great read that leaves you wondering what will happen next.

Alexis has a not so normal life. Her parents hardly pay attention to her, she's sure her sister is not sane, the cheerleaders are out to get her, and she has feeling for a boy who's not even her type. When her sister starts acting weirder than she normally does, Alexis knows that something is up, that something must be controlling her sister,but what?

I was so surprised with this book. I was expecting just a creepy, suspenseful book but it was far more than that. It felt like it could happen to almost anybody, it was so realistic. Alexis had to be my favorite part of the book. She was so funny, awesome, and had that I-don't-care-about-anything attitude that wasn't overdone.

Carter was so swoon-worthy. I felt bad at some of the stuff but Alexis was only doing it for his own good. Megan I also really liked too. I really just didn't like Kasey but she didn't ruin the book for me. There was some parts that made me creeped out by her and some where I got angry at the girl.

This book was so awesome, I wonder how the next one's gonna be like.

Overall: Kickass awesome!
