    Beautiful Malice

    Katherine Patterson is a girl with a secret. A secret she wants to keep that way; so much so that she is a loner in her new school. But she brings attention to herself after making a remark to another classman that brings her to the attention of Alice. Alice seems to be the most popular girl in school and wants to be Katherine's friend. We watch as their friendship develops. But Alice has secrets of her own and Alice is a psychopath. The book builds you up to Katherine's secret and why she tries to hide her past. But all the buildup and the relationship between the girls made this story an okay read, but not something that made me say "wow".

    Enjoyed the secrets unraveling

    I wouldn't say this was my favorite book of the summer. But I would say it was a good quick read. I did get captivated in the characters and wanted to know why Alice was such a lost soul wanting so much attention. Finding out the tragedy that Katherine went through did not need to take so long through the book. The story flips from the past to the future, but keeping you wanting to find out why the characters end up where they were. I liked the twist at the end to finally realize why Katherine in the beginning of the book did not go to Alice's funeral.

    Intense YA Novel

    As you turn the pages of Rebecca James debut novel, "Beautiful Malice", you find yourself in a web of unraveling secrets that pull you deeper into the thrilling psychological mystery that keeps you guessing 'til the end.

    Every girl dreams of being friends with someone like Alice Parrie. She's beautiful, fearless and exciting, everything Katherine Patterson misses about her old life. As Katherine lets go of the dark secrets of her past, she is consumed with the even darker secrets of Alice's. The harder Katherine tries to protect herself, the deeper into the trap she falls.

    An intense, electrifying story that doesn't fail to keep you on the edge of your seat.
