Présentation de l'éditeur


When Alexis's little sister Kasey becomes obsessed with an antique doll, Alexis thinks she is just being her usual weird self. Things get weirder, though, when their house starts changing. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner blasts cold air. Kasey is changing, too. Her blue eyes go green, she starts using old-fashioned language, and she forgets chunks of time. Most disturbing of all is the dangerous new chip on Kasey's shoulder. The formerly gentle child is gone, and the new Kasey is angry. Alexis is the only one who can stop her sister -- but what if that green-eyed girl isn't even Kasey anymore?

Format:Broché
Alexis might not be perfectly well-adjusted to high school life, but she finds her niche as an outspoken pink-haired smart-aleck quite satisfying, thank you very much.

Her four-person family is far from perfect, but they have always managed to get by, in their spooky architectural jumble of a house. Alexis' mother spends more time at work than at home, but so do millions of other moms across America. Kasey, her doll-obsessed little sister, is sometimes too passive for her own good, but hopefully the doll-collecting is something she will grow out of. As for her father, they aren't exactly close, but he could be worse.

One night, after a family argument leaves Kasey in tears, Alexis comes to the rescue in the role of comforting big sister. Kasey requests a story, so Alexis soothes her with a made-up story off the top of her head. Since it is for her baby sister, the story revolves around a little girl and her doll, Kasey's favorite topic. Naturally, Alexis doesn't think much of the story, though come to think of it, it is a bit strange at how smoothly the spontaneous story rolls off her tongue.

However, shortly after Alexis' tale, Kasey starts behaving weirdly. More strangely than normal anyhow. It starts small, with her eyes sometimes changing color from blue to green and using old-fashioned language, like "oughtn't." At first, Alexis tries to brush away her foreboding feelings, deeming the odd vibes she is getting from Kasey as a figment of her imagination, nothing serious.

When mysterious lights appear in the middle of the night, doors close themselves, and the air conditioner goes haywire to the point where Alexis can see her breath in the house, she knows it is no overactive imagination.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A ghost story for people who don't like ghost stories--and those who do, too 8 juin 2009
Par Bookduck - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I didn't think I'd like this book; it doesn't take much to scare me out of my wits, and I don't typically read novels dealing with ghosts and possession.

But I read this one anyway. And I LOVED it.

Bad Girls Don't Die is more than a ghost story. There's a touch of romance and an air of mystery, and a challenge to really get to know people before slapping a label on them and deciding you can't be friends with them--a mistake most people, including me, frequently make.

Bad Girls has a well-paced, character-driven, intriguing plot that kept me turning the pages for hours when I only meant to read for minutes. Furthermore, if I had a Top 10 list of my favorite fictional people, Alexis would be on it. She's smart, funny, unafraid of getting her hands dirty, and I really enjoyed her first-person narration. And she has pink hair!

On a couple side notes, Bad Girls is a pretty squeaky clean read, ghosts and all. There's no sex, drugs, or gratuitous swearing--and I really appreciated that. (The cleanliness also felt natural, which is another plus. Cleanliness can feel just as forced as "edginess".) Thank you, Katie Alender, for acknowledging that those things are not a part of every teenager's life. Also, while Bad Girls is exceptionally well put-together, the ending wrapped up a little too quickly--and awkwardly--for me. But it fit. Overall, I have no large complaints.

If Twilight is a vampire book for people who don't like vampire books, Bad Girls Don't Die is a ghost story for people who don't like ghost stories. And I highly recommend it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Completely engrossing and downright creepy 6 mai 2009
Par The Compulsive Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Alexis Warren is a tough, sarcastic loner who is nursing a grudge against the cheerleading team for driving away the only friend she ever had. To deal with her loneliness, she turns to photography and seeks shelter in her dark room. After one peculiar night photographing her 100 year old house, Alexis's sister Kasey begins acting odd. She becomes spiteful and demanding, and she has extreme mood swings. At first, Alexis attributes her strange behavior to the ups and downs of being in middle school--but after a series of accidents that may not have been accidents after all, Alexis has to ask herself, Is something more sinister at work?

Snarky, engaging, and downright creepy, Bad Girls Don't Die is one stellar debut novel; Katie Alender has created one of the most engrossing and consuming novels of the year. The witty, casual tone of the novel, told from Alexis's point of view initially hooks readers, but it is the darker undertones concealed by Kasey's sweet face and her "innocent" doll collection that really ensnares readers and makes Bad Girls Don't Die such an unpredictable and tantalizing read. Alexis is a wonderfully dynamic character--she is strong and opinionated and learns how to deal with her issues in a mature manner, but along the way she also learns to recognize similar qualities in those she previously judged, making her likable without being cliché. Though the haunted house and possession stories have been done many times before, Alender's fresh slant on the topic will enthrall readers and leave them just a bit creeped out.

She has no idea what exactly is going on, but something weird is happening in their house, and much as she hates to admit it, Kasey has something to do with it.

Events spiral rapidly out of control, as midnight wanderings progress to thievery and even attempted murder. Alexis has no idea who to turn to - does anyone even believe in the supernatural anymore? People might just lock Kasey up as schizophrenic, but Alexis knows better. Her little sister is not crazy. Kasey is possessed.

Katie Alender's BAD GIRLS DON'T DIE is a haunting tale of one town's murderous history and a ghost that wants revenge.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect amount of creepiness- not enough to keep you up at night 13 novembre 2011
Par Cheyenne Teska - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Alexis is a pink-haired outcast. She may not have many friends, but she spends most of her time immersed in her photography. At night, both Alexis and Kasey notice a faint glow that can't be explained. It seemed to have been in the house, but through the viewfinder of her camera, Alexis realized that the light wasn't getting larger- it was getting closer. The next night, it seems as though her neurotic, oversensitive little sister, Kasey, changed. She's more put together and begins to speak differently.

Alexis can feel something different about the old house they've lived in since they were children, as if there was another presence. When strange things begin to happen, she pushes them aside, figuring that her sister had just gone off the deep end. Eventually, she realizes that there's more at stake than she realized. Lives are being threatened and she has to get as much information as she can muster up in order to save the people she never thought she'd get involved with.

I was torn whether to give this book a 4 or a 5 for rating. I enjoyed it a lot. It was a fast-paced read and the author kept the story interesting, with entertaining characters, dialogue, and unexpected twists and turns in the plot. Around the time I picked this book up, I didn't hear much about it and looking at the summary, I thought it was just about a creepy doll. Call me slow, but it didn't occur to me that it was about possession until someone mentioned it. There were even parts in the book where I had to stop reading just to gather what had just happened.

This was the perfect read for Halloween (especially since it took place in October, as well). I wouldn't call it a scary book, but it definitely had its creepy moments. You know, the ones where you check over your shoulder or snuggle a little closer to your cat. Or maybe that's just me.

I will definitely be looking into the sequel, From Bad to Cursed.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Would've been so much better if the main character weren't an utter cliche 28 octobre 2010
Par endlesswonderofreading - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book SO would've scored a four if the main character hadn't been so damn hypocritical and annoying. She was a complete and total cliche. You know, one of those "I don't care what you think of me" chicks that end up doing stupid things that just prove "Yeah you do care what people think, you flaming hypocrite!"? Well, Alexis was that in a nutshell. She was just SO cool with her pink hair and her anti-social, anti-cheerleader attitude. No, seriously, it's like they tried too hard to make her seem "hip" and "edgy" while being effortlessly cool. "A rebel without a cause." No. Just a bitch. One line in particular that just killed me. "Just say something real. Everyone tries so hard, and it all comes out the same. I just want someone to say something real." Seriously? Because the only REAL person in high school is you, Alexis. Everyone else is just fake, fake, fake. I like Kasey (yes, psycho/schizo, demon-possessed Kasey) more than I liked Alexis. Arrgh! She was so infuriating. Sigh. Now that I got that off my chest...

Bad Girls Don't Die had some seriously creepy moments. Like "chill up your spine while goosebumps are all over your body" creepy. Very effective. Sure, the whole the doll possessing thing has been done a little to death, but it was done particularly well here (not like in Dismantled: A Novel where I was rolling my eyes at the implausibility of the plot). I could actually see it happening. Dolls are just utterly creepy. It doesn't really matter how cute they are. They're evil, man. So, definitely good on the creepy (but not too creepy for all you semi-scaredy cats out there).

I loved Kasey. I just thought she was so adorable. I wanted more of her and her relationship with Alexis. The relationship should've been expanded on. In fact, the only time I was finding Alexis even mildly likeable was when she was with Kasey. Kasey definitely has main character potential. As it is the norm now for authors to release a book with the same plot and characters, but have a complete OTHER character narrate the exact same story, Alender should totally do this with Kasey. I would love to read this through her eyes. It'd be even more bizarre.

The romance between Alexis and Carter was completely and totally useless. I usually find romance useless in young-adult books anyway (unless your Sarah Dessen, that is or an actual romance book), but this was like really useless. Carter served absolutely no purpose in the plot. He was just there so that there could be a romance because every young-adult book needs romance, right? Wrong. It just came out stilted and forced.

Anyway, so as a whole, Bad Girls Don't Die was a pretty good book. I stand by what I said before. Had Alexis been a little more likeable, I would've overlooked the flaws and given this book a high four (or even a five), but her blatant unlikeability killed it for me (well not really but it did cause some major eye rolling by yours truly). Bad Girls Don't Die was truly creepy and an all around solid Halloweenish read. It did have some awkward and clunky moments (little discrepancies), but it is a debut novel, so that's to be expected. While it wasn't my fave, I am sort of looking forward to the next installment of this series. But seriously, does EVERYTHING have to be a series? This was a solid one book only novel. Why not start fresh with a new idea? How on Earth will a sequel work when there's no route to one? I'm not a big fan of the "Man, this book was an unexpected success! Let me see if I can milk it a little more!" type of spur of the moment series. Still, I'll read it. Um, yeah Bad Girls Don't Die? Recommended.
