The cover: This is the UK cover, and for some reasons, I like it better than the US cover, probably because Wish You Were Dead’s, the previous book’s, UK cover is way prettier than the US one. Although, the US one makes more sense…. The storyline: This story has less horror in it than the previous book but way more suspense. I was holding my breath all the time because I knew something bad was going to happen. The mystery in this story was the number one thing that kept me reading, it was a great journey with Callie trying to figure out who killed Katherine and framed her. I’ve been thinking about the killer and the possibilities all the time while reading the book, and I’m sad to say, I totally didn’t expect the ending…!! What I loved: The writing style was very good, it is somehow different from the first book, but it only made the book better. I was expecting it to be a sequel in story to Wish You Were Dead and was somehow shocked to find that it is a totally different story. I loved how the story was built from ground zero and developed its own surroundings and characters but it also happened in the same city, so this tiny detail didn’t change :). The main protagonist, Callie, was very brave and smart too. The story wasn’t boring despite its 51 chapters and I actually remember each one because they were short and weren’t long. Two words: the ending! My favorite chapter is 47!! The twists and the ongoing cobwebs of weird events. What I hated/didn’t like: Hmm.. nothing really I can remember. What I missed: I wish there was a bit more horror in the story?! It lacked that compared to the first book and there weren’t any gore or horrifying descriptions or scenes (Call me crazy, but I love these and really liked them in the first one, it’s not like they’re too scary or disgusting, they just add this feel to the story). The characters: Callie is the protagonist. She’s been framed for a death she didn’t commit and she was courageous and strong while trying to prove her innocence. Slade is Callie’s boyfriend. He really loves her and helps her thru the book, but at the end, you’ll find many unsettling truths about him. Dakota is the one who’s been blamed by Callie in the book for killing Katherine and setting up Callie. She’s not totally innocent either. Katherine, the dead girl, is basically the mean girl in the Soundview High school. She’s been manipulating a lot of students including Callie, Dakota and Mia. Mia is another girl who happens to want to be in Katherine’s circle but ends up being kicked out by her. She becomes Callie’s friend. Other characters worth mentioning are Callie’s parents and brother, Sebastian, who’s in jail for attacking their father and causing him permanent brain damage. Chief od police Jenkins who’s Dakota’s uncle and an old friend of Callie’s father. Conclusion: This was a really good read. I don’t have words to describe it, but if you love thriller and mystery books with twists, this is definitely one to check :)

I don't read this genre of books so when I got it just out of boredom, I didn't think I would like it but I did. took me just 5 hours and I enjoyed every minute of it. Love the way it makes you want to find out what happens and you just can't put it down till your done!

Having just finished reading Todd Strasser's IF I GROW UP to my 8th graders, I was excited to read another one of his books. BLOOD ON MY HANDS is the second book in what is described as a "thrill"-ogy that began with WISH YOU WERE DEAD. Callie seems to have been caught red-handed, knife in hand, bent over the body of Katherine Remington-Day. Someone in the crowd that gathered snapped a picture of Callie holding the murder weapon, and now she finds herself on the run from the police. After what Katherine did to her, Callie isn't particularly upset that her former friend is dead, but she certainly is not going to be framed for the murder. What she needs to do now is find somewhere safe to hide so she can figure out a plan. Before too many people are aware of her instant fame, Callie makes a quick stop at a store to buy hair dye and a few other supplies to create a disguise. Her tiny build doesn't allow her to blend into crowds of average-sized individuals, so she opts for a Goth girl style in hopes of looking totally different than people would expect. Callie has an idea of who may have committed the crime, but she needs help. Counting on her parents for assistance is worthless. Her mother is needed at home to care for her disabled father, and her brother is in prison, found guilty of the attack that crippled their father. She must be careful which friends she goes to for help, since practically everyone she knows is part of the clique led by the late Katherine. Her only hope lies with Slade. But how willing will he be to help, since she dumped him and broke his heart? BLOOD ON MY HANDS chronicles the days following the murder as Callie tries to prove her innocence. She describes her struggle to search for evidence as she hides from the police. During the time she spends hiding, she recalls the events leading up to her current situation. The suspense created by the twists and turns in friendships and circumstances surrounding Katherine's death and Callie's presumed guilt make for an action-packed thriller that pushes right through to the last page.

Suck a great book the killer slade srimp boyfriend and they still fall in love even though she knows that hes the killer. If you like this book you should read boot camp, kill you last and last but not least wish you where dead. If your looking for a murder mistery book these are the right type of book for you. Boot camp is about a kid that get kidnapped in the middle of the night and he gets abused and tries to escape but something goes wronge in the middle of the plan. Kill you last is about a father that into taking phtots of women that are not dressed but after he is done taking phtos of them something goes wronge and all three modles dissaper. Wish you where dead is about a girl who in high school and she has a blog and one day she writes on her blog that she wishes the two most popurler people in the school would died and dissapear so she could never see them agian. The next day she goes to school she finds out they go missing and the police do nothing about it. But during the book she falls in love and finds out who the guy really is and who the killer is...
