Now Alice is fifteen and Ray still has her, but he speaks more and more of her death. He does not know it is what she longs for. She does not know he has something more terrifying than death in mind for her.
This is Alice's story. It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget.
(summary from jacket flap)
Oh. My. Gosh. I started this book one night and finished it the next morning. Now you all are aware of how slowly I've been reading as of late, and so this was quite the feat for me. But I seriously could not put this book down. And that's not a good thing either. Living Dead Girl covers such a morose and disturbing topic that I'm not surprised that it wasn't until now that a book has been written about it. I don't think any other author was brave enough or tough enough. I really have no idea how Elizabeth Scott did it. To have to come up with this story, write it, and take months to go through revisions and editing, would be enough to throw me into a serious depression. It's an amazing, moving, and poignant book, that gave me chills while I was reading. While there were some parts that left me unsatisfied, after thinking back, I don't think they could have been written any other way. The author clearly put a lot of thought into how she was going to write it, what tone she was going to take, and how she was going to execute the plot. And it really all paid off. Alice's character is disturbing and beautiful and all the twists are inserted and written in a very concise manner. The thing that really gets the story across to you is the dynamic of it. Elizabeth adapted just the right tone of voice to make the book come alive and scare the living daylights out of you. Now I'll probably be having nightmares for a week, but all for good reason. Living Dead Girl really opened my eyes and made me think about our world in a whole different way. But beware, this is not a light read in any way. Not at all.
