The Dead Girls Club

Summary: A supernatural thriller in the vein of A Head Full of Ghosts about two young girls, a scary story that becomes far too real, and the tragic–and terrifying–consequences that follow one of them into adulthood.

Red Lady, Red Lady, show us your face…

In 1991, Heather Cole and her friends were members of the Dead Girls Club. Obsessed with the macabre, the girls exchanged stories about serial killers and imaginary monsters, like the Red Lady, the spirit of a vengeful witch killed centuries before. Heather knew the stories were just that, until her best friend Becca began insisting the Red Lady was real–and she could prove it.

That belief got Becca killed.

It’s been nearly thirty years, but Heather has never told anyone what really happened that night–that Becca was right and the Red Lady was real. She’s done her best to put that fateful summer, Becca, and the Red Lady, behind her. Until a familiar necklace arrives in the mail, a necklace Heather hasn’t seen since the night Becca died.

The night Heather killed her.

Now, someone else knows what she did…and they’re determined to make Heather pay.

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

This cover kept catching my eye on Netgalley and I kept thinking about requesting it, but then I would worry that it was going to be toooooo scary. BUT, it really wasn’t scary. Suspenseful at times- but also draggy at times.

 

What I Liked:

The cover! It was dark and beautiful.

The mention of Baby, Baby by Amy Grant. That was MY song in the early 90’s.

The Dead Girls Club group. Even though I would ground my nieces to the end of time if I ever hear they are in a group like that.

 

Bottom line: This book had SO much potential- but it just didn’t live up to all I thought it could be.

    • It just didn’t live up to the cover or my expectations from the back cover copy. Of course-you may totally have different opinions (and I kinda want you to read it so I can see what you think!)
