Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender

This was a book that CJ had checked out and the cover and title so intrigued me that I decided to read it, even though CJ was bored with it.

And it was a nice read. Nothing that blew me away but a good teeny-bop book with some supernatural touches.

Alexis is a stand-out high schooler, with pink hair and a brooding attitude. A non-conformist, so an instant like from my POV.

Alexis and her younger sister, Kasey, live in a big, old, beautiful, mess-of-architecture of a house that ends up having a bit of history. The reader learns about it through dreams, neighbors, and the 'research project' that Kasey ends up becoming obsessed with.

Along the way, the reader follows familiar teenaged angst in a brooding Alexis as she deals with the popular cheerleaders of the school, and student council president, Carter Blume.

I enjoyed it. It isn't memorable but it isn't bad. But let me tell you, I'm really looking for a book to envelop me into its world.
