Dead Jealous


How did I get it?:
I bought it!


People think of Mother Nature as a gentle lady. They forget that she’s also Death…Sixteen-year-old Poppy Sinclair believes in quantum particles, not tarot cards, in Dawkins, not druids. Last summer, in a boating accident in the Lake District, Poppy had a brush with death. But the girl she finds face down in Scariswater hasn’t been so lucky. As she fights to discover the truth behind what she believes is murder, Poppy is forced to concede that people and things are not always what they seem and, slipping ever deeper into a web of lies, jealousy and heart-stopping danger, she comes to realise – too late – that the one thing that can save her has been right there, all the time.


Recently I have gave up on so many books. You won’t find out which ones as I don’t believe in publishing Did Not Finish reviews. I was just itching to find a book that could capture my attention, and take me out of this book slump that I’ve been experiencing. I remembered several bloggers recommending Dead Jealous. So I thought I’d ignore my Coming Up list momentarily and get stuck into Dead Jealous. I’m glad I did, because it got me out of my book slump and it was a thoroughly enjoyable reading experience! I’m so glad I’ve got Dead Silent ready and waiting to go!

Dead Jealous is essentially a murder mystery story. A story that I thought was brilliant. It felt original to have the story set against a Pagan backdrop. I haven’t read anything like this in Young Adult fiction before, so it was a pleasure to read! I was completely swept up in the mystery. It’s great to read such a intriguing young adult mystery book.

Poppy was a fantastic protagonist. She was likeable and real. I can’t wait to see what she gets up to next!

Would I recommend it?:
Of course!
