Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender


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?

Epic Wins:
  • Alexis- She is tough as nails and just as stubborn. I say this in the most endearing way, of course. 
  • Carter- Oh. Carter. Well he has a troubled past but he is slowly getting over it. It's cute the way he like her. 
  • I loved the writing, it was so clear and painted a realistic picture (yes she made ghosts seem real). 
  • Alexis's love of photography. She is so tied to it and truly seemed to have a knack for it. 
  • Megan- You know the girl who is pretty. popular, and against all odds is rather kind? Yeah that's Megan in a nutshell. 
  • I love Alexis and Carter's relationship, it made the creepy ghost story less oh-my-gosh-she-is-being-attacked-by-a-ghost and more adorable. 
  • Coraline has it, Paranormalcy edged around it, and now I present you with the cute and creepy book that i9s Bad Girls Don't Die. 
  • The constant mystery behind the ghost and what it is going to do next really keeps you on your toes. 

Epic Fails:
  • The evil ghosty. She is messed up with a hint of crazy. Hard to figure out which one was the evil ghost. 


A good balance of cute, creepy, and teenage problems. Hit the books, hit the books. 

just sayin,

Let me know what you think was an epic win or an epic fail, or if you feel like it make robot sound like beep beep boo bop. Really I could careless just keep it clean.
