Alexis thought she had a typical dysfunctional high school exsistence: dysfunctional famil, he crazy doll obsessed sister Kasey, and an antisocial attitude.
When a family arguement results in a tearful sisterly bonding experience. Alexis realizes the her life is no longer dysfunctional. It is scary and dangerous. Kasey is acting like a her normal self, until her blue eyes are changing to bright green.. She is using language that is decades old. She is also blacking out time chunks of time. There old house is acting odd too. Doors are opening and Closing on their own, Water is boiling on a unlit stove, and a unplugged air conditioner is making it freezing.
Alexis wants to think that it is all in her head and that there is no connection between her sister and the house. Also that both are harmless. Until she finds a list of names, a plot, and the history of the house. Soon, she gets help from two unlikely sources.
I loved the characters. Alexis was funny, fresh, and not the normal anti-social. I found Kasey and Sarah to be great villians. Carter and Megan were awesome too. I didn't expect Megan to help Alexis. Carter was a sweet guy. The plot is great. It was scary and full of action. This book was really original. The creepy doll obsession was a nice touch. I have always hated collecter like dolls. I love the parts that Alexis was doing Photography, because I have always wanted to do it. Alender's writing was fresh and exciting. I liked the descriptions of what happened. I recommend Bad Girls Don't Die to anyone that likes anything scary , creepy, or paranormal. It is the perfect book for that.
