Published: April 21st 2016
My review(spoiler free): Alexis Warren is a normal teenager, well except for her pink hair, always being cast as a “misfit” and not getting along with the cheerleaders (for various reasons). She’s also completely in love with photography or more specific shooting film. Although she’s not as obsessed with her photography as her little sister Kasey is with dolls. At first Alexis don’t think that much about it, because Alexis is herself a bit weird so why judge Kasey? But Kasey just keeps getting weirder and weirder until Alexis no longer can ignore it, but she has no idea what to do about it.
Now just to my opinions. I find everyone in the book interesting (but I will just mention quick that this was a reread for me so I don’t know how much it affects my opinions now). All the characters have background stories and they all have some flaws which I find is important to make a character more “real”. Of course we get most information about Alexis since she’s the main character but I still feel like you get a vision of the side characters.
I just have to say that I love the way Katie Alender are mixing normal, daily teenage life problems with humor and scary scenes. Her writing is fantastic and the way her stories always intertwine in the end is wonderful. I will have to share some of my favorite quotes from this book too, they’re not spoilers either so you can be calm.
“That’s the pathetic thing about high school. Everyone tries so hard to be something they aren’t. It’s gotten so I don’t know who I am, so how can I even try to be who I am, much less who I’m not?So with this said, I love this book.”
“I’m a giant pimple on the face of humanity.”
“Apparently when it’s two people, it’s quirky and funny, but when it’s a person doing the same stuff on her own, it’s rebellious and antisocial.”
Here’s the official book trailer and can I just say, I absolutely love the Bad Girls Don’t Die trilogy’s trailers especially after reading the books. They are brilliant.
