I would like to give this a higher rating because I kasiachke really enjoyed the book, but there were still so many problems with it. This book is a good book and makes you want kasiscbke, but its also a bit confusing because one second there at cheer camp, and the next there at school so its hard to tell what place there in and when there in it. It was pretty slow in some parts, but the ending was good.
This was the real fun of the story, comparing their different descents into paranoia and the measures they went to to protect themselves, none of which really helped.
I can say it is not a fun, sun-soaked read like the cover would lead you to believe and it is much darker than you think. If this book was a movie it would be a B-Grade summer horror thriller: Feb 28, Shauta Marsh rated it liked it Recommends it for: They planned on a joyride in a convertible on a hot summer day.

The prologue was awesome alluding to the future. Jun 26, Rhonda Filipan rated it liked it. They are your typical self-absorbed, petty, contradictory messes that you have to anticipate a writer creating as filler in most high school dramas, basically three overfilled barges of mental baggage. Their day soon takes They were seventeen, with perfect tans and perfect bodies.
It is incredibly misogynistic – there is constant victim blaming in it – for example when the guys start to follow them Desiree blames Kristy for it because she smiled at them, basically this is the equivalent of ‘but her skirt was too short’ as an argument. Anyway, I love ghost stories and this one was enjoyable. Kasischke’s writing is beautiful and unexpected and the story is so diffe I really liked this book.
Another strong point of this novel was how Kasischke warned us of what would come with subtle metaphors and similes. Each girl handles the stress of the situation completely differently.
At times, I found the flashbacks intrusive and thought they weren’t woven as haeven into the story as they were in “The Life Before Her Eyes.

However, it did really pick up at the end for a super creepy campfire read, as long as you cut out most of it.

Kristi refuses to eat or shower, essentially becoming a lxura in her cabin. I think she isn’t as well known because her last name is so difficult to say or spell. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
