Title: Bad Girls Don’t Die
Author: Katie Alender
Series: Bad Girls Don’t Die
I’m going to get my major pet peeve with this novel out of the way, so I can talk about all of the things I really liked about it: multiple personalities are not a part of schizophrenia, so page 189 making that allusion threw me out of the story for a bit. I also don’t know if I like how that part of the storyline wrapped up in the end, but I’m not going to crusade against the novel because of this pet peeve. As my partner reminded me, it’s not something that the Joe Average Reader would pick up on.
I may be bringing up this novel in the child abnormal psychology course I’ll be taking at university this fall to see if any of my classmates have read it and what they felt about it if we end up talking about how mental illness is portrayed in popular culture.
That said, I really liked the novel. Once I started reading it, I was engaged for 80% of my reading. I could relate to nearly all of the characters and found myself really intrigued by how classic this modern thriller felt.
I cannot wait to get book two in the series and continue reading Alender’s work.
