Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott
Hey everyone! Today is such a nice day in Ohio! It's sunny and like, 70 some degrees! I hope wherever you are, It's just as nice for you. Today's book is Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott. The description is:
Once upon a time, I was a little girl who disappeared.
Once upon a time, my name was not Alice.
Once upon a time, I didn’t know how lucky I was.
When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends – her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure all pain. She waited for the nightmare to be over.
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.
When I finished this book, all I could think was Oh my gosh. This book is intense. So, so intense. It is a very well written book, but very serious. Like, I would say only people 14/15+ should read it. It is such a powerful story. I think we're lucky that Elizabeth Scott was the one to write it. She has such talent in making us feel the emotions her characters feel. I was watching one of Elizabeth's V-blogs on the Readergirlz website and she said another author said that no one should read this book, ever. I think that is complete crap. Every story deserves a chance doesn't it? This story, I think, is one that should be read by many. People may not understand that things like this happen all the time. Elizabeth Scott took a risk by writing this book and having it published and for that I give her tremendous credit. Elizabeth is one powerful writer and she seems ultimately fearless. She writes what needs to be wrote. And to her, Alice's story was one people needed to hear.
If you're looking for a book that will put you in a happy mood, this one isn't for you. But, if you're looking for a book that is great, true, and full of intensity, this one is for you. I hope you older folks check this one out-- it's worth a chance. It's only a little under 200 pages also, so it's a quick read. They will probably have it at your library so I would check for it there first. Happy reading everyone! :)
