Bad Girls Don't Die Review



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?
(Synopsis provided by GoodReads)

When I was in middle school, a friend of mind told me a scary story about a family that bought a doll named Lucy. In the story, Lucy creeps up the stairs and kills the whole family.  This book takes that sort of nightmare-esque story and expands it into a paranormal mystery.

Prepare to be amazed. I read this book for the third time yesterday, and still found myself fascinated by the spooky tone of this amazing book.

The book starts out slow and full of clichés. Then, it becomes more interesting when Kasey’s possessions begin and Lexi starts to lower her guard and interact more with other characters.
           
This book has great romance; I found myself eager to read the next moment between Lexi and Carter. Carter is a sweet, normal and interesting character that was a perfect match for Lexi.  The places where Carter enters a scene are random, but his scenes are amusing. I especially enjoy his entrance of opened a door that banged onto Lexi’s head.

The terror: While reading, I waited in suspense to see what Kasey would do next.  Lexi receives several spooky memories that describe the evil doll’s past treacheries and history. Kasey’s eerie possession is gradual and the stages are shown well. At first, Kasey is pretty normal and just experiencing some instances of blank memory. Then, Kasey starts hurting Lexi and scaring everyone in the town.

The realism: The book consists of a typical awkward family dinner, a teenager striving for independence, a beloved hobby and the relationship between sisters. Lexi’s family has trouble communicating at dinner. The main character’s flaw is trying to hard to solve her problems by herself. I enjoyed reading about Lexi’s photography hobby; I love how Lexi used her skills in this hobby to solve one part of the mystery. Lexi and her adorable sister Kasey fought many times in this novel, but in the end show that they are always there to help each other out.
           
I liked how the friendship between Lexi and Megan was gradual. Lexi extremely disliked Megan in the beginning, so it was understandable why it took forever for them to finally work together. They only started working together once they resolved their differences. Megan’s past was interesting to learn and added depth to her character.

I enjoyed how all the main characters ended up in the climax at the end of the novel. I admired Lexi and the other’s bravery. This was an awesome debut novel with an entertaining plot.
