Even though I don’t always like to admit it, I am well aware that I am no longer in the ‘young adult’ age group. I am reminded of that each time I reach for my reading glasses. However, I still enjoy reading YA books and watching TV shows like Pretty Little Liars.
Poor Little Dead Girls is a mystery set at an exclusive boarding school. It hits on expected themes that teens can relate to – mean girls, hazing, bullying, wealth and boys. It’s good for kids to take a look at these issues and think about how they might act in social situations, even if they aren’t living at a boarding school with dark and mysterious things happening.
This is the first young adult novel written by Lizzie Friend. The target audience is high schoolers, but some younger kids and other adults will enjoy it as well. The book is a quick read and thrilling read that is entertaining and thought provoking.
