Beautiful. Perfect. Dead.
***They forgot to add MEAN…Beautiful. Perfect. Mean. Dead

“A secret is not a secret if you tell someone…”

In the seaside town of Cape Bonita, popular “mean” girls are being murdered. They were members of the “Larks”, an exclusive club of seniors and juniors who are cheerleaders, team captains, man stealers, rude chicks, etc… you get the picture. They are the pretty, popular mean girls who rule the school. But then one day one of them if found dead. Their little universe gets turned upside down. Soon there is another dead Lark and every girl in town in town is worried and fearful that she may be next.

Penelope, a Lark member, is trying to stay alive while trying to figure out who the killer may be and more importantly, could she be the next victim? After all the murdered girls were her “friends’ and fellow Lark members. There is only one other person in town who has a connection to all the dead girls and that is Cass. The strange teen who lives with his grandmother. He has an interesting and sad past and until recently, Penny really didn’t notice him. But now she does, and she begins to wonder, why now is he on her radar?

This is a very past faced YA thriller which does not disappoint. I devoured it in one sitting. It’s fun, entertaining, and hard to put down. This book is like a guilty pleasure. It’s fun, it’s light and it isn’t much work. It’s perfect for that day when you want to read something fun that doesn’t take much brain power. I’m not putting this book – it’s perfect for what it is. It’s a fun thriller. Perfect for teens and adults who want a quick entertaining book.

I also liked the writing and the characters. They were not the nicest of people but they were drawn very well and although predictable, they did not disappoint.

Thank you to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley who provide me with a copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.
