Bad Girls Don't die

by : Eunice castaneda

"Alexis thought she led a typically dysfunctional high school existence. Dysfunctional like her parents' marriage; her doll-crazy twelve-year-old sister, Kasey; and even her own anti-social, anti-cheerleader attitude."

When a family fight results in some tearful sisterly bonding, Alexis realizes that her life is creeping from dysfunction into danger . Kasey is acting stranger than ever: her blue eyes go green sometimes; she uses old-fashioned language; and she even loses track of chunks of time, claiming to know nothing about her strange behavior . Their old house is changing, too. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner turns the house cold enough to see their breath in .

Alexis wants to think that it's all in her head, but soon, what she liked to think of as silly parlor tricks are becoming life-threatening to her, her family, and to her budding relationship with the class president . Alexis knows she's the only person who can stop Kasey but what if that green-eyed girl isn't even Kasey anymore ? What will happen next ?
