Bad Girls, Good Girls, and even Moms love this book, by Deb Eve

Aside from when I was an adolescent, I’ve never been a big reader of young adult literature. Oh and another thing, I’ve never been a fan of thrillers of any sort, ghost stories in particular. Yeah, me and Deb Katie’s book were in trouble from the get-go. And yet, BAD GIRLS DON’T DIE grabbed me from the beginning and wouldn’t let me go. There is something so appealing about Alexis…

Applauding Bad Girls Don’t Die by Deb Meredith

I have a confession to make. I’m a wuss about ghost stories. Pretty funny for a mystery writer, huh? But I don’t really like when things go bump in the night. I had too many experiences getting scared around the campfire, I guess. But even though Bad Girls Don’t Die is a ghost story, it’s a book I couldn’t put down. It’s a story about a teenager struggling with parents…

BAD GIRLS DON’T DIE… but they can whine! by Deb Katie

As I write this post, it’s Monday evening. I’m at the office, because my husband’s working late. The big excitement today was that the “honor system” candy dish came in $8.25 under, provoking a very entertaining and scathing email. I’m mad at myself because I ate too much over the weekend and haven’t worked out since Saturday. My left eye itches, because I have terrible hay fever. My dog has…

Deb Kristina celebrates BAD GIRLS DON’T DIE

Alexis, the heroine of Bad Girls Don’t Die, is my kind of girl. Not because I had pink hair and spouted controversial, passionate opinions in high school – if only I’d had that kind of guts! – but because Alexis can spot a phony a mile away. She also makes no exception for phonies among the “rebels” who have their own code of conduct every bit as rigid as that…
