Review: Dangerous Girls

Anna and her friends are celebrating Spring Break in Aruba and having the time of their lives.

Then everything changes: an intense, out of control vacation turns deadly.

Elise hasn't been answering her phone. They're worried about her. Finally they break into her room - and discover Elise lying in a pool of blood- murdered.

The house hasn't been vandalized, except for the balcony door.

Anna's friends have alibis. Her alibi is her boyfriend Tate. The police question them - hard. It's revealed that they weren't together the entire afternoon.

Now Anna's on trial for murder. She had no idea how this happened, but she's fighting for her life. 
My Thoughts: I read this book weeks ago, devouring it in one sitting and I'm still thinking about it. I like the set-up of the book - the timeline and how it goes back and forth from the time Anna and Elise met throughout the trial. I liked learning about their friendship. I loved trying to uncover what really happened that afternoon.  That ending - slammed into me and made me think. A perfect ripped from the headlines book that teens will gobble up - just like I did.

Cover Thoughts: I like it!
