Penelope Malone is the president of the “Larks,” an elite high school club comprised of seniors and juniors that basically rule the school. Pretty and popular, these girls are also mean, back-stabbing snobs that are being targeted by a psycho killer whose intent is to "pick them off," one by one.
Cass Vincenti is the odd guy in school that is attractive yet easily overlooked. With a past that’s subject to many rumors, his behavior is often viewed as peculiar and unpredictable. Inserting himself into the midst of the ensuing chaos, one must question whether Cass is actually a
friend or foe.
An unlikely alliance is formed between Pen & Cass, as they formulate theories and work together to uncover the truth. And somewhere along the way, a romantic connection develops and grows. But with each senior Lark that winds up dead, Penelope’s life hangs in the balance. Hence, a future for this pair hangs in the balance, as well.
While reading books within the YA genre is not my typical norm, thrillers most definitely are. Thus, as an established fan of Monica Murphy, I found the premise of “Pretty Dead Girls” to be intriguing and unique.
Although my early guess as to the killer’s identity proved to be spot on, as the storyline progressed, I began to waver in my conviction. And while I was ultimately proven right, the motive behind the murders was not as easily deduced. Unfortunately, both the motive and conclusion was not as impactful as I had hoped. Still, “Pretty Dead Girls” grabbed my attention right from the start and held me captive right up until the very end.
Thank you to Entangled Publishing & Negalley for an advanced copy of this book, which I voluntarily reviewed.
Anyway, I loved this book, I found myself glued to the pages trying to figure out the mystery of who it is (I love mysteries) and of course I love romance, and I really enjoyed that part of it. The characters were very well written. I hated the mean girls. Loved Penelope, the main protagonist. I suspected so many people. I was on and off about certain characters, one minute I trusted them, the next minute I didn’t. (Trying not to give away too much) But it was just fun! I love books that make me think, reason, analyze and try to guess before the book ends. I haven’t been reading that many mysteries this year, and this book made me remember how much I love a good Suspense/Mystery/Romance....I’m not asking for too much, am I? Lol
I recommend this highly for someone who likes Young Adult, Thrillers, Suspense, Mystery and Romance. Oh and may like the show Scream Queens or the slasher movies, Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. If that’s your thing, you will probably really enjoy this book!! I know I did!!
~Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book via Social Butterfly PR & NetGalley. The opinions expressed are my own.
Penelope Malone is the head of the popular girls, also known as the "Larks". They are the best athletes, smartest students and the crém de la crém of their elite high school. But they are also the Mean Girls of the school. The girls who run the social hierarchy and the clique that can determine your whole high school existence. But now someone is out for revenge and the Larks are being killed off as fair game. The likely suspect? The mysterious loner Cass who lives with his grandmother. Can Pen figure out who has a target on her back before it's too late?
I really liked this thriller. It was fun and addicting and a definite page turner. An amazing read you could get lost in as you become consumed with the characters, snappy banter and the whodunit mystery. I did not want to put this down the minute I started it!
All in all this was fantastic and I look forward to reading more books like this from this author in the future! Bravo! 4 stars! ~Ratula
