Bad Girls Don't Die (Bad Girls Don't Die #1) By: Katie Alender

Five Stars

Goodreads Summary:

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?

Am I the only person that thinks the title is stupid? But the cover was sort of pretty. I wasn't going to read this until my friend shoved it into my face and threatened me to read it. 

Alexis is a great main character. She's really spunky, and I like her. The way the author wrote her voice really made me relate to her. 

Kasey being posessed was really interesting to read about. This girl made me realize  I wasn't crazy for hating dolls. 

The love interest, Carter, was awesome. He didn't take up Alexis's entire thoughts. A great thing this story does is that romance doesn't take up the entire plot. It's only a little important.

The way the back story was fed in was awesome. It wasn't just dumped; we found out about it a little at a time.

Megan Wiley, the cheerleader, isn't the typical annoying blonde. She's really important in this story.

The plot moved along at a satisfactory pace.

I'm definitely buying the next two books. I want to know what happens next to Alexis.
