What they “didn’t” kazischke on was being followed by two guys in a beat-up station wagon. Kasischke’s writing is beautiful and unexpected and the story is so diffe I really liked this book.

Overall, I like this book but I think there are a lot of things that could have been cut from the story. The pacing of this book was magnificent, something I struggle with in my own writing, as well as the characterizations. Anyway, the thing that this book does best is take the reader along on the psychological train wreck of being haunted or stalked by something creepy.

I didn’t know what that meant exactly. Kiss the Book is a book review site to help school librarians at any K level find books for their classes and libraries. This story is basically about a kasisfhke high school cheer kasichke, thus I started to remember what it was bou when I was a teen and home alone one night reading a Stephen King book. A couple of gorgeous, rich girls at cheerleader camp have an encounter with some boys who aren’t quite what they seem.

I feel oaura there are a lot of woman who write great adult books but dumb it down too much for YA. Most of the story was just a bunch of girls in a cheerleading camp hating on each other while pretending that they weren’t.

Description They planned on a joyride in a convertible on a hot summer day.

Then the story lurches back to the present where the three girls are all at yhe cheer-leading camp in the woods. Give it a try when you’re after a fast, mindless summer read and I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.

Three stars is generous, but the rating is influenced by the fact that the target audience is half my age an A couple of gorgeous, rich girls at cheerleader camp have an encounter with some boys who aren’t quite what they seem. I know it’s meant as an urban legend but you could at least give me a decade. The writing style was clear and it’s a fast read.

There was one sort of friend in the camp that was clearly very ill, mentally or physically and she never once asked her if she was okay or even attempted to get her any help. There is enough sex in this otherwise to make sure of that. And in “Pretty is as pretty does” which is what my stepfather used to say whenever I stood in front of the mirror too long.


Il y a une critique de la perfection apparente. As much as I liked this book, I am afraid to say that I After having read ‘The Raising’ by Laura Kasischke which I thought was fantasticI was really excited to read more of her work, so started with this one.

I admit I get creeped out easily when it comes to urban legends or old campfire stories, yet I am hunky dory reading true crime or paranormal books.

The teaser on the back cover is lame pretty much any way you read it, but it also has nothi I would like to give this a higher rating because I actually really enjoyed the book, but there were still so many problems with it.
