dead-girls-society

You are cordially invited to participate in a game of thrills and dares. Tell no one, and come alone. If you dare.

Hope is sick of everyone treating her like she’s breakable. Sure, she has cystic fibrosis (basically really bad lungs), but she’s tired of being babied by her mom and her overprotective best friend, Ethan, not to mention worrying about paying for her expensive medication and how she’s going to afford college. And she’s bored with life in her run-down New Orleans suburb.
When an invitation arrives from a mysterious group that calls itself the Society, Hope jumps at the chance for some excitement. This could be her ticket out. All she has to do is complete a few dares and she just might win some real money.
But the Society isn’t all that it seems…and soon Hope finds that playing the game isn’t a choice—it’s a requirement.

About the Author:

Michelle Krys

I’m the author of the YA novels HEXED and CHARMED, plus the upcoming DEAD GIRLS SOCIETY (Nov 8, 2016), all from Delacorte Press/Random House Children’s Books. I’m repped by Adriann Ranta of Foundry Literary + Media. Visit me at michellekrys.com or follow  @MichlleKrys on Twitter, @michellekrysbooks on Instagram, or mkrysbooks on Snapchat.

MY THOUGHTS

Hope has cystic fibrosis and has been home from school for what seems like forever.  Her best friend, Ethan, stops by to chat and bring her homework so she can keep up with school.  Her breathing has gotten a bit better and she convinces her mother and doctor to return to school.  When she receives a mysterious invitation, she decides that she must find out what it is all about and even though she is a “good girl”, she borrows her mother’s car and at midnight ends up a deserted warehouse.  There she finds the popular kids from all cliques at school.

The group is challenged to dares in order to win a cash prize but no one can tell who or how the challenges were set up.  Each dare is set up to find a weakness in the girls, especially Hope.  The story is full of nail-biting moments and you will definitely have to read this one straight through.  I found it a bit predictable but overall it was a very fun read. Parents:  some alcohol/drug references, implied violence, some language but pretty safe for younger teens.
