[Preview] Poor Little Dead Girls by Lizzie Friend

October 6, 2013

Friend, Lizzie.  Poor Little Dead Girls.  December 18, 2013.  $17.99.  288pp.  Grades  9781440563959.  Is it a game? Or is it murder?

The first time she’s blindfolded and “kidnapped,” Sadie, a brand-new star athlete at a posh boarding school, is terrified.  Luckily, it’s all a prank designed to induct her into a powerful secret  society that her mom belonged to at Keating Hall. The circle has it all – incredible connections; fabulous parties; and, of course, an in with  the brother society’s gorgeous pledges. The instant popularity is enough to make Sadie forget about the little marks on her arm, creepy black  robes, and an unfortunate incident that befell a girl on the team years  ago. So the next time Sadie is gagged and kidnapped, she’s only slightly annoyed – even though she should be extremely terrified of what’s to  come.
