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 am a little vague on details about Bad Girls Don’t Die since I read it awhile ago. However, it is one of the best not-too scary books ever! (I am a scaredy cat when it comes to horror/scary stuff) It was a little strange when something intense was happening but then there was something funny happening overall. (does that make any sense?) Gosh, I am tired.. Oh well, back to the book.. BGDD isn’t one of the type of books that makes you want to sleep with the lights on which in my case was a good thing. However, you do get your fair share of chills and goose bumps.

Okay, so I have been seeing a slight pattern in endings with the books I have been reading–they all seem too peachy! I am not saying have major disastrous things at the end, but BGDD really had a good, satisfying ending that was a little predictable, but it will keep you thinking about it.

I do love how Mrs. Alender develops her characters even the secondary characters have depth about them making an overall more depth-er Alexis. This made the book more believable to me knowing a little about Carter (the class president) who isn’t much in the book, but you still remember him..

There is so much more I want to talk about this book now that I have my train of thought! However, I don’t want to ruin it for you.. so go ahead, buy it! I read this book late at night and with my phone light since it was a school night. However, I did dream of an alligator.. haha. You’ll get it when you read it, if you haven’t.
