I bought it!
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?
I had heard so much about Bad Girls Don’t Die but I was worried to read it as I have a very vivid imagination. I decided to just go for it and I’m so glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I can’t wait to read more from the series.
Bad Girls Don’t Die centres around Alexis and her younger sister Kasey. Alexis is a keen photographer and is often taking pictures at all times of night. Kasey is absolutely obsessed with dolls, which Alexis finds strange. What’s even stranger is that Kasey is getting stranger by the day. Her eyes are changing colour, she’s speaking in a really old fashioned way and she has an incredible amount of strength for a pre-teen! Alexis is convinced that her sister is possessed and she endeavours to find out who or what is behind the possession!
I think readers will either love or hate Alexis. She’s quite rebellious, but at the same time she’s incredibly moany about her family life. She hates the fact that her mum works 24/7 and doesn’t pay much attention to her. Kasey is an incredible character. I found her cute at some points and terrifying at others.
The storyline is action packed and so easy to read. It’s not too scary. I found it more of a creepy, thriller read. I just wanted to know what on earth was going on! I’m intrigued to see how this series progresses.
