“Bad Girls Don’t Die” is a haunting book by Katie Alender, in which it tells a story of a teenager named Alexis. Her scary high school experience made her question everything. Alexis’ younger sister is named Kasey. After a family argument it causes the family to act different including her sister Kasey. She had been acting out of the ordinary, and realizes that it is taking a creepy turn. Kasey claims nothing is wrong with her, but she is using old language, losing track of time, and her eyes turn different colors. Also, the house is changing too, doors open randomly and the lights flicker. Alexis starts to claims that it is all in her head, and that it is nothing to worry about. But the occurrences have become life threatening to her family and friends. Alexis thinks that the only way to stop it is by herself.

John Flanagan is the author of my book, The Ranger’s Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan. Flanagan became most famous for his book series, The Ranger’s Apprentice. John wrote these books for his son Michael. Flanagan has also written, The Brotherband Chronicles. The Ranger’s Apprentice has been in the New York Times bestseller list and has also earned the international success award for the seventh book in the series. He only has these two series. I have not read any of Flanagan’s other books but I look forward to reading the series.
