Games for Dead Girls

We rated this book:


When Charlie meets Emily while on summer vacation, the young girls immediately bond over scary stories. Emily is afraid of her father, so Charlie makes up a monster to get rid of him. What at first started as a game, becomes real as Charlie sees her monster and someone dies. Now, thirty years later, Emily is writing a memoir blaming Charlie, so Charlie returns to the beginning to find the truth. What Charlie doesn’t know is whether or not what she created is real or if there is something else going on, as for the past 50 years, young girls have been disappearing. These are Games for Dead Girls now. Charlie’s going to have to face the past in order to have a future.

This is a fantastic book for anyone who grew up reading scary stories. I still check in the backseat before driving and never let my hand fall over the edge of the bed while sleeping. I loved the twists and surprises that were littered throughout. The alternating timelines didn’t get confusing, which is huge. Charlie is a great character to follow. If you like scary stories, you should definitely read this. Maybe not in the dark.
