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?

My Thoughts:

Have you ever read through a book just hoping that it will get better? 
That was me while I was reading Bad Girls Don't Die. I really wanted to like it and I gave it a fair chance by reading it till the end, unfortunately it just didn't do it for me. I felt like this book had so much potential to make my skin crawl but the author just didn't take advantage of it, I mean what is scarier than a doll that can possess people.

This book was lacking on scary scenes, I felt like the author was focusing more on the main characters high school life instead of focusing on the possessed sister. I also found this book extremely predictable, I like a book to keep me on my toes and maybe even have a plot twist at the end. I will not be continuing with this series since I just don't see the point in it even being a trilogy. I'm truly disappointed I just saw so much potential in this book it’s sad that the author didn’t take more advantage of it. The only thing I liked about this book is the cover it's definitely creepy.
