I am desperately trying to tackle to my pile, which really is a mountain at this point, of books to read. This has been on my list for months but I had no clue why or what this book was about. I guess that is what happens when the reading list is over 800 books. Doh!
I don’t want to give anything away because I don’t want to ruin the fun but I will say that there is some paranormal activity. After the mysterious death of Renée Winters’ parents, she is sent to Gottfried Academy, a boarding school in Maine. One thing you need to know about the school is that “the secrets that aren’t found out are buried well. And probably for a reason.” (Insert “Dun-Dun-Duuunnn” Sound Effects HERE) Dead Beautiful has the same-old, same-old ‘new girl in new school getting the attention of the most beautiful boy in school’ setup. While there is absolutely no character depth in this novel, the myth and lore is rich and shocklying well developed. There are enough plot twist and mystery that I played hooky and avoided homework to find out how this all turned out. I was pleasantly surprised and I will definitely read the other books in the series… just not sure when. lol oh so many books, so little time.
