I was lucky enough to win myself an ARC of Dead Is The New Black by Marlene Perez (aka
) and was excited to get a sneak peek!
Teenage girls are being mysteriously attacked all over town, including at Nightshade High School, where Daisy Giordano is a junior. When Daisy discovers that a vampire may be the culprit, she can’t help but suspect head cheerleader Samantha Devereaux, who returned from summer break with a new “look.” Samantha looks a little..well, dead, and all the most popular kids at school are copying her style. Is looking dead just another fashion trend for pretty, popular Samantha, or is there something more sinister going on? To find out, Daisy joins the cheerleading squad….
First, the cover alone would be enough for me to snag it off the shelves, and it only gets better from there. Dead Is The New Black has a fresh twist on the vampire angle, perfectly executed romance drama and a dash of sibling rivalry. The main character, Daisy, isn’t typical in any way, shape or form and I loved watching her grow as the book went on! I’m having trouble writing this, because I’m dying to spill details! Can’t wait for September to come so I have others to discuss it with! This is one to pick up!
