You are cordially invited to participate in a game of thrills and dares. Tell no one, and come alone. If you dare.
Hope is sick of everyone treating her like she’s breakable. Sure, she has cystic fibrosis (basically really bad lungs), but she’s tired of being babied by her mom and her overprotective best friend, Ethan, not to mention worrying about paying for her expensive medication and how she’s going to afford college. And she’s bored with life in her run-down New Orleans suburb.
When an invitation arrives from a mysterious group that calls itself the Society, Hope jumps at the chance for some excitement. This could be her ticket out. All she has to do is complete a few dares and she might win some real money.
But the Society isn’t all it seems . . . and soon Hope finds that playing the game isn’t a choice—it’s a requirement.

What We Loved:
We love the whole idea for this story. It’s intriguing and intense and different from most things that we read. We felt like it was all sort of unrealistic, but once you’re able to suspend belief, this is a great story.
We liked Hope and thought she was a fun, multi-layered character. Though we didn’t always agree with what she was doing, we connected with her and were rooting for her.
We loved the setting. NOLA is always a favorite for us.
Um...Not So Much:
The ending. After getting to the end, part of us feels like we wish we hadn’t read this book at all. That’s all we can really say about that.
We felt like some of the characters acted a little immature, but we also realize that is probably normal 😉
We definitely could have done with more swoon.
Fast-paced and heart pounding, Dead Girls Society by Michelle Krys will leave you aching for more.
Good luck and don’t forget to check out the other stops on the blog tour for Dead Girls Society by Michelle Krys!
