Alexis is the last girl you’d expect to sell her soul. She already has everything she needs–an adorable boyfriend, the perfect best friend, and a little sister who’s finally recovering after being possessed by an evil spirit, then institutionalized.
Alexis is thrilled when her sister joins a club; new friends are just what Kasey needs. It’s strange, though, to see how fast the girls in The Sunshine Club go from dorky and antisocial to gorgeous and popular. Soon Alexis learns that the girls have pledged an oath to a seemingly benevolent spirit named Aralt. Worried that Kasey’s in over her head again, Alexis and her best friend Megan decide to investigate by joining the club themselves. At first, their connection with Aralt seems harmless. Alexis trades in her pink hair and punky clothes for a mainstream look, and quickly finds herself reveling in her newfound elegance and success. Instead of fighting off the supernatural, Alexis can hardly remember why she joined in the first place. Surely it wasn’t to destroy Aralt…why would she hurt someone who has given her so much, and asked for so little in return?– Synopsis,
This one wasn’t as creepy or as good as the first but definitely still kept my attention though. Anyway, From Bad to Cursed is the sequel to Bad Girls Don’t Die, a book I absolutely loved, the story brings back Alexis Warren, and her formerly possessed sister Kasey who has just been sprung from a mental institution.
Kasey’s reappearance has Alexis on edge and threatens to derail what had been shaping up to be an excellent school year. Her sister is sullen, at best, resenting the suspicious way Alexis looks at her, and she is understandably reluctant to go back to school.
Surprisingly, however, Kasey is welcomed by a group of girls including a new student, one of Alexis‘ old friends, and even Kasey’s former BFF/ Together, the girls meet regularly at one another’s homes and form a club that focuses on self-improvement.
There’s a little bit of Romance but not much, so if you’re like me and I don’t really like heavy Romance in books, then this might be a good fit for you. This is another book where I enjoyed the pacing very much. It was hard for me to put this book down. This is such a fast paced story.
