Author: Lily Anderson
Genre: Ya,Paranormal, Mystery
Rating: 4 Stars
Mila Flores and her best friend Riley have always been inseparable. There’s not much excitement in their small town of Cross Creek, so Mila and Riley make their own fun, devoting most of their time to Riley’s favorite activity: amateur witchcraft.
So when Riley and two Fairmont Academy mean girls die under suspicious circumstances, Mila refuses to believe everyone’s explanation that her BFF was involved in a suicide pact. Instead, armed with a tube of lip gloss and an ancient grimoire, Mila does the unthinkable to uncover the truth: she brings the girls back to life.
Unfortunately, Riley, June, and Dayton have no recollection of their murders, but they do have unfinished business to attend to. Now, with only seven days until the spell wears off and the girls return to their graves, Mila must wrangle the distracted group of undead teens and work fast to discover their murderer…before the killer strikes again.
I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this book, I’ve seen it around and I never really had an interest in reading it. My daughter is teething and I needed an audiobook so I picked up this one. I ended up listening to in in two days, OMG I loved it so much !!
What I loved most about this novel was the friendship between all the girls. Mila our main character is a fat Mexican, also a wiccan who ends up resurrecting her friend Riley,but surprise she also raises June and Dayton. Mila and Riley were never friends with the other girls while they were alive, they were bullies or “mean girls”.But now they have all grown close in the search for who killed them within seven days. I loved how the girls all bonded with each other, despite there differences.I loved Mila’s sarcastic voice, while she is tough the author also shows her softer side as she grieves for her friend.
The murder mystery aspect was brilliantly done. I was constantly changing my opinion as to who the murderer was as more facts were revealed, I was wrong in who I thought it was.I also loved how it was explained that Wicca and Witchcraft are not the same thing (despite what many people think.)I took off a star rating because I felt that the ending was a little rushed.
If your looking for a fun diverse, murder mystery with a bunch of girls doing magic then I highly advise you to pick this one up.This book is a must read for 2018!!
