SYNOPSIS – (From Goodreads)
When Alexis’s little sister Kasey becomes obsessed with an antique doll, Alexis thinks nothing of it. Kasey is a weird kid. Period. Alexis is considered weird, too, by the kids in her high school, by her parents, even by her own Goth friends. Things get weirder, though, when the old house they live in starts changing. 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. Kasey is changing, too. Her blue eyes go green and she speaks in old-fashioned language, then forgets chunks of time.
Most disturbing of all is the dangerous new chip on Kasey’s shoulder. The formerly gentle, doll-loving child is gone, and the new Kasey is angry. Alexis is the only one who can stop her sister — but what if that green-eyed girl isn’t even Kasey anymore?
This book is just so good, I had to read it again before I read From Bad to Cursed! The second time I read Bad Girls Don’t Die was almost like the first time. I could not put it down. Every page left me wanting for more, more, and more! But this time, I was able to read it at night. And let me tell you, I wasn’t scared of Sarah’s bright green eyes at all! (Okay, well, maybe just a little..)
I remember I was pretty scared when I was reading Bad Girls Don’t Die. I had to stop reading the book before I went to bed because I kept thinking about that DOLL. But it was weird how I didn’t give up on the book. Usually scary stories like this would seriously freak me out, but Bad Girls Don’t Die was different! So if you as me, it wasn’t too scary.
I think Lexi is a nice character. She’s different from almost every other girl in the book. It’s not that she’s anti-social, she just chooses to dislike pretty much everyone at her school. She has an interesting point of view and a really funny sense of humor! I think Lexi is fun to read about. Kasey seems to act a lot younger than her age. Maybe that’s just how she is, but I kept seeing her as a nine or ten year old, instead of thirteen. My sister and I are also two years apart, so if she ever got possessed, I do not know what I would do! I don’t think I would be as brave as Lexi.
The only thing I was a little disappointed about was the love plot with Carter. The ending with him was nice, but it could have been better. Hopefully it’ll get better in From Bad to Cursed!
Finally, I’m in love with the cover! It’s creepy and spooky state fits with the plot perfectly. The lace curtains make it seem vintage, too. If you haven’t been drawn to this beautiful cover, the book description (or perhaps my review) should! Read Bad Girls Don’t Die if you haven’t already! Katie Alender will not disappoint!
