Overview

Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves

"Brutally beautiful — not like anything else you'll read this year, or any other." - Cassandra Clare, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Clockwork Angel

Kit and Fancy Cordelle are sisters of the best kind: best friends, best confidantes, and best accomplices. The daughters of the infamous Bonesaw Killer, Kit and Fancy are used to feeling like outsiders, and that’s just the way they like it. But in Portero, where the weird and wild run rampant, the Cordelle sisters are hardly the oddest or most dangerous creatures around.

It’s no surprise when Kit and Fancy start to give in to their deepest desire—the desire to kill. What starts as a fascination with slicing open and stitching up quickly spirals into a gratifying murder spree. Of course, the sisters aren’t killing just anyone, only the people who truly deserve it. But the girls have learned from the mistakes of their father, and know that a shred of evidence could get them caught. So when Fancy stumbles upon a mysterious and invisible doorway to another world, she opens a door to endless possibilities….

I loved this book! It was so good. Dont belive what these reviews say. It may be gory and a little twisted, but some people like that. And really i dont get why people are getting so upset over a book. its not like any of this really happened. Its called FICTION for a reason. So if you are thinking about buying this book, DO IT! It will be so worth your while. :)

I agree with Beverooni. Unfortunately, this book was not well-planned or written. Characters were weak, inconsistent, and generally frustrating. I would also like to point out that this story, much like their immoral "pet" Frankenstein, is something torn up and stitched together like some kind of Frankenstein's monster. It has two entirely separate plots that do not go well together at all. I am not impressed. Either make this a realistic serial killer story or make it a faerie tale/monster story. You simply cannot get away with taking your immature girl characters to a fantasy place TO KILL PEOPLE. Anyway, SPOILER ALERTS FROM HERE ON OUT. I would like to applaud the effort of Dia for trying to get into the minds of young female killers. It's new and interesting. I do not applaud how sucky she made these characters. I was excited until Fancy turned out to be an unintelligent, moody brat and Kit ends up being a (pardon my language) very whorish fifteen year old girl. Dia romanticized murder and young teenage sex in this book. While I usually want to be like "Hey, be your own person," I'm not okay with how she tried to show girl power and sexual liberation. There is a good bit of implied rape and some pretty disturbing things from Gabriel, which are all blamed on SLEEPWALKING. Like are you kidding me? I have a best friend who sleepwalks. She doesn't try to rape and/or slit my throat. The ending was not done well, it stops in the middle of a random, anticlimactic scene. Speaking of which, there is no climax of this book. None. Honestly. And any interesting characters there are, like Cherry, show up for maybe a total of ten pages, never to be seen again. Dia, I think you had good intentions. But this book should not be read by anyone. It is terribly done. OKAY. END SPOILERS! All in all, don't waste your money. Please.

To all the people who hated this book you are taking it way to seriously a young adult is a 12-16year old , this is not a book for 5 year olds i agree but you dislike this book please remember there are thousands of books choose another. My opinion is this book way written fine and thescrpt makes sense.if anyone willing ro buy this book can handle its level of machurity do read it , i love this book... peace.

I have to say this was probably my least favorite book of the year. I felt the plot was weak and the characters even weaker. I try not to be too critical whenever an author puts forth an effort to publish their works but I found very little about this book that was redeeming in any way. I did complete it but removed it from my nook without shelving it. Sorry, not my "slice of cherry."

Brilliant. All of the right elements that make for fun reading for those who like a little poison in their sweet tea.

I am 13 and I have a 9th grade reading level (Not to brag!) And some say I am WAY too young to read gory fiction books such as Slice of Cherry. But i can't resist! This breath taking book left me reading for hours on end, I just simply couldn't put it down! It absolutely had my full attention throughout the book and the imagination that was put into this story was PHENOMINAL. Well done, Dia. You got yourself a fan!

Ok,so i read the reviews and thought i was prepared for weird. Nope. The whole book was filled with sex, violence, and just generally weird characters. If you're on the fence about buying this book, i would advise against it.

This book at first was a little nasty but once you get into it you will love but it is not meant for just anyone your maturity lvel has to be up to it. Kit and Fancy have a deep desire to kill but they only kill those who deserve it. They know where this great desire came from therw father was also a killer. He got caught, but this only helped the girls learn they learned from his mistakes. While going through this Kit and Fancy also found love that will last a life time. This an amazing book and a book that i recomend ypu to read

At first it might take you awhile to get used to the overall weirdness of the book, but after that it's a quick read. Some parts were confusing about the doors and such, but overall it was a good book.

This book is unlike anything i have ever read before... in a good way! The entire plot is so creative, and really stretches your imanginary to the fullest extent possible while building up the characters and settings as you get further into the book. I would recomend it to some teenage girls... not a book for just anyone though :)
