What is it about? (Summary from GoodReads)
Mila Flores and her best friend Riley
have always been inseparable. There’s not much excitement in their small town
of Cross Creek, so Mila and Riley make their own fun, devoting most of their
time to Riley’s favorite activity: amateur witchcraft.
So when Riley and two Fairmont Academy mean girls die under suspicious circumstances, Mila refuses to believe everyone’s explanation that her BFF was involved in a suicide pact. Instead, armed with a tube of lip gloss and an ancient grimoire, Mila does the unthinkable to uncover the truth: she brings the girls back to life.
Unfortunately, Riley, June, and Dayton have no recollection of their murders, but they do have unfinished business to attend to. Now, with only seven days until the spell wears off and the girls return to their graves, Mila must wrangle the distracted group of undead teens and work fast to discover their murderer…before the killer strikes again.
I did not expect to fall in love with this book as much as I did! I was still feeling a bit audiobook slumpy when I picked this up, but ended up listening to all of this in two days! The mystery was so interesting and I just could not stop until I knew where it would end!
Immediately from the start this book is kinda dark, and I was really liking that!
I basically loved everything about this book! The writing, the characters, the sarcasm (oh please give me more!), the witch part, the setting!
It was all perfect! It might sounds overexaggerated, but whatever. Honestly I haven’t read many YA mystery, but this one is definitely on top of the list.
I really liked that there was just this little bit of magic, it made the story so much better! But also darker! And the humour, it was just good! I guess it just really matches my humour!
‘You wouldn’t understand. It’s a dead girl thing.’
‘Oh great. Another clique I’m not cool enough to join. Possibly literally.’
‘Spells are just prayers with more steps and a name to scare people’
The only reason I took half a star is because Mila at some points became unreasonably annoyed at times, at least I didn’t really see why. But for the rest everything was great!
I really hope Lily Anderson will write more, whatever it is, I will read it!
